To tweak the adage, money can’t buy you love from Hollywood. That’s something Georgia is learning and something citizens in other states with film-production tax credits should note.
For some years, Georgia has offered significant tax breaks to lure film productions. Its citizens also elected a Republican governor this year. It seems the latter is more important to some Hollywood officials than the former.
A #BoycottGeorgia campaign on Twitter has been touted by several prominent and semi-prominent actors, including Ron Perlman, Alyssa Milano and Bradley Whitford. In a tweet, Whitford declared, “Studios need to put their money where their mouth is and stand up to hate.” Milano said Georgia is a “totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy.”
