Danny Glover doesn't need an audience

The former co-star with Mel Gibson in the Lethal Weapon film series makes me feel additionally embarrassed I ever watched those movies years before, as he calls for a boycott of Israel: (via Breitbart London):
Danny Glover and others actors featured in a documentary on an American social justice activist have formally protested the imminent screening of the film in Tel Aviv, and announced their support for a cultural and academic boycott of Israel.

The film, “American Revolutionary: the Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs,” is due to be screened at the DocAviv festival, which is running through May 17.

In a statement, Glover and nine others featured in the film, along with Boggs, the 98-year-old philosopher and activist whose life is chronicled in the documentary, said: “We stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine, and support their call for cultural and academic boycott of Israel… we were shocked to find the film slated to be screened at the DocAviv festival in Israel on May 13th and 15th. This was scheduled without our knowledge.”

[...] Boggs “has explicitly stated her support of the boycott and believes this screening is in direct contradiction to her legacy and ongoing work as a revolutionary,” the statement said.
I guess that's one "social justice" worker I don't need to know anything about. Nor do I need to bother any longer about the Lethal Weapon movies, and haven't for a long time. Until now, I had no idea just how bad those formerly associated with that movie really were.
