Politicians Upset Over Celebrity ‘Vaping’
US politicians who are usually reluctant to criticise Hollywood have had an unexpected attack of the vapours over actors ‘smoking’ e-cigarettes at the recent Golden Globe awards.
During an event that began with a wet red carpet due to a fire sprinkler malfunction (willfully misreported in the UK Daily Mail as a burst sewer pipe), Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Leonardo DeCaprio were shown ‘vaping’ on the electronic pseudo-cigarettes.
“The Golden Globes celebrates entertainers who are an influence on young fans,” wrote (Democrat) Sens. Dick Durbin, Richard Blumenthal, Sherrod Brown and Edward Markey on Tuesday.
“The Golden Globes celebrates entertainers who are an influence on young fans. We ask the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and NBC Universal to take actions to ensure that future broadcasts of the Golden Globes do not intentionally feature images of e-cigarettes.”
