Jamie Lee Curtis claps back at Fox News' misguided tweets on guns

11 Octobre, 2018, 18:41 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Curtis will use a gun in this film as her character tries to survive Michael Myers' latest murder spree, and for some reason, Fox apparently made a decision to use this as an opportunity to call her a hypocrite because of Curtis' real-life support for gun control.

The network covered the news in the article: Jamie Lee Curtis wields firearms in new "Halloween" movie despite advocating for gun control.

"Jamie's got a gun in the latest "Halloween" reboot", the article says, before noting that it is in fact Curtis's character, Laurie Strode, using a weapon in the film.

"It was just silly, because they were trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think", Curtis told USA Today on Wednesday.

Hurricane Michael has arrived, and it's stronger than anyone expected
Meteorologists first got a sense something big could be happening by watching how Michael's eye changed shape. Footage shows other homes and cars submerged in flood waters as the hurricane battered the Sunshine State.

Curtis acknowledged she wants assault weapons and bump stocks to be banned.

But she said she fully supports the Second Amendment and has "absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place". The writer draws the conclusion that this shows Curtis "isn't entirely anti-gun". "And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles - which are weapons also". Not that of her character.

"I'm an actress who's in slasher movies", she told the publisher.
