Since the election, many celebrities have voiced their displeasure over President Trump and his administration. Some have even called for violence. From Robert De Niro to Snoop Dogg, here are nine left-leaning noteworthy people who have incited violence toward Trump and the GOP.
Moby’s latest video is simultaneously nostalgic and dystopian. In 1980s cartoon fashion, a giant Transformer-like Trump morphs into a swastika/dollar sign and wreaks havoc on a city before meeting a fiery, explosive demise.
Madonna admitted to a crowd of thousands at the Women’s March on Washington that she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” The singer’s profanity-riddled jab at the largely Republican administration provoked the anger of many conservatives.
This comedienne landed in hot water after photos surfaced of her holding a fake bloody, decapitated Trump head. Griffin was promptly dropped by Squatty Potty and CNN. Trump himself called the photos “sick” and tweeted that his children were “having a hard time” with the images.
New York City Public Theater
This nonprofit theater staged a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” that made conservative viewers want to revolt. In the production, a Trump-esque figure is stabbed to death by a band of angry Senators. The Public Theater subsequently lost sponsorships from Delta Airlines and Bank of America.
Snoop Dogg’s music video for “Lavender” (literally) paints the POTUS as a clown and orchestrates his death. At the video’s end, the “Gin and Juice” rapper points a gun at the harlequin Trump figure and shoots. But instead of a bullet, a red flag that reads “Bang!” fires out of the gun.
In a TMZ video from 2015, this boxer-turned-actor directed his rage toward Trump, calling him a “big-mouthed bitch bully” and saying he would “love 30 seconds in a room with the little bitch.” Rourke has also expressed a desire to “give [Trump] a Louisville slugger.”
Right after the election, shock-rocker Marilyn Manson had to take his turn in the Trump-bashing festivities. In a teaser video for his song, “Say10,” a Trump-like persona wearing a suit and a red tie lies decapitated on a concrete floor, in a pool of his own blood.
Robert De Niro
This actor is not afraid to express his disdain for the Commander in Chief. De Niro confirmed to ABC’s “The View” in February that he would like to punch Trump in the face. He clarified earlier comments, saying “It wasn’t like I was gonna go find him and [really] punch him in the face, but he’s gotta hear it.”
James T. Hodgkinson
James T. Hodgkinson is the man responsible for shooting and injuring several GOP leaders at a recent Congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va. According to the Washington Post, Hodgkinson worked on Bernie Sanders’ presidential bid.
