Dean Cain on Hollywood's GA Boycott: 'How Many Times Did They Threaten to Leave US Over Trump'
Actor Dean Cain said Friday on "Fox & Friends" that Hollywood showed "hubris" when about 100 celebrities announced a planned boycott of Georgia if Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signs the "Heartbeat Bill."
Kemp is expected to approve the legislation, which would outlaw abortions after a heartbeat is detected in the womb.
Cain, known for his roles as "Superman" and host of the TBS series "Ripley's Believe It Or Not!", said it is wrong for Hollywood to "tell a sovereign state like Georgia that you have to follow our beliefs on abortion."
"There's a reason the 10th Amendment exists," Cain said. The amendment protects states' rights, in that all powers not enumerated in the Constitution shall be reserved to state governments.
"How many times did [actors] threaten to leave the United States if Donald Trump got elected?" Cain asked.
He said that most of those who did still haven't "gone to Canada."
Cain said Hollywood is "overstepping" in its demands of the Peach State, adding that a couple of actors pulling out of a state that gives tax breaks to Hollywood isn't going to hurt Kemp's bottom line much.
The Fox & Friends panel noted that mainstream Hollywood tried to suppress publicity for Cain's last film, "Gosnell."
Cain said the premise of the film, which exposed the murderous actions of West Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, is along the same grain as the reasoning for the boycott.
Gosnell, who performed late-term abortions in a low-income area, was arrested and convicted in 2013 of murdering three babies post-delivery.
