Always 'Unfair' When Dems Lose: Tomi Takes on Celebs' GA Boycott After Abrams' Loss
SIGN UP FOR FOX NATION TO SEE TOMI LAHREN'S DAILY "FINAL THOUGHTS!"
Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren said Tuesday that it's "pretty easy" for celebrities to call on Hollywood to boycott Georgia after Brian Kemp (R) won the state's gubernatorial race.
Some celebrities like Alyssa Milano, Ron Perlman and Bradley Whitford have tweeted that they want the entertainment industry to avoid the Peach State after Democrat Stacey Abrams' loss.
There are over 20 productions shooting in Georgia.
Is the entertainment industry willing to support the economy of a totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy; where the winner isn’t the best choice for the people but the best schemer or crook?

Brian Kemp is a corrupt, homophobic, unapologetic disenfranchiser of African American voters. If he seizes power, Hollywood needs to use it’s leverage and pull out of Georgia. Studios need to put their money where their mouth is and stand up to hate. #boycottgeorgia

Lahren said that celebrities embracing the "#BoycottGeorgia" trend are forgetting about people who'd benefit from TV and movie jobs in Georgia that voted Democrat.
"It's all about their outrage. It's all about these continual losses, and it's pretty easy for them to tweet about things that they clearly don't understand," she said, adding that the elections where Democrats lose are always deemed "unfair."
"It's becoming a pattern with the Democratic Party."
Many films and television shows are filmed in the state of Georgia because of a tax credit incentive.
Abrams, who has repeatedly refused to acknowledge Kemp as the legitimate governor-elect, tweeted that she doesn't want the entertainment business to boycott her state.
I appreciate the calls to action, but I ask all of our entertainment industry friends to support #FairFightGA - but please do not #boycottgeorgia. 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.

According to Project Casting, popular shows like Netflix’s "Stranger Things," AMC’s "The Walking Dead," and Fox’s "The Gifted" are all filmed in Georgia.
