In the days that have passed since Stacey Abrams lost the gubernatorial race in Georgia’s midterm elections to governor-elect Brian Kemp, many of Abrams’ famous supporters —including actress Alyssa Milano and Veep exec producer Frank Rich — have expressed their disappointment in the outcome by urging Hollywood not to film in the Peach State.
Although she has plans to file a federal lawsuit against Georgia for the “gross mismanagement of this election,” Abrams on Saturday took to Twitter to say that she does not want the state’s thriving entertainment industry to suffer from a boycott.
“I appreciate the calls to action, but I ask all of our entertainment industry friends to support #FairFightGA – but please do not #boycottgeorgia,” wrote Abrams. “The hard-working Georgians who serve on crews & make a living here are not to blame. I promise: We will fight – and we will win.”
