In spite of how many people in the entertainment industry seem to think, people are tired of politics being brought into all possible areas of life. Hollywood producer Jason Blum found it after he bizarrely decided to use the film festival as a forum for the culmination of his anti-Trump's views.
Blum, who is the founder of Blumhouse Productions and produced for critically acclaimed films such as Get Out and Whiplash, received awards at the Beverly Hills Film Festival.
The Israeli Film Festival is sponsored by the Adelson Foundation, founded by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who was a strong supporter of President Donald Trump.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, during Blum's acceptable speech, he took the opportunity to go for a blow against the president.
"We have a lot to celebrate this evening with the opening of the 32nd Israeli Film Festival, but today Americans have gone to the polling station to exercise our right to vote," Blum said.

"I checked the phone quietly and we did it well," he continued, as some audiences said: "It depends on who."
"The election results are pouring out when I speak and a lot of them," Blum said. "The great thing in this country is that you can love Trump but I do not have to, and I can tell you what I feel about it – and I do not like it!"
But many people in the audience were not happy with his anti-Trump remarks or with his injection of politics into what was supposed to be the celebration of the film. Some began to go out, while many of those who remained shameful when Blum continued his irrelevant tire.
As it was heard in the video, one voice reminded him: "It's a film festival!"

Blum continued the political speech because the audience whistled and voted louder, and people went out.

"As you can see from this hall, it's the end of civic discourse," he continued. "We have a president who calls the press an enemy of people, because of our president's growing anti-Semitism."
Blum had to leave the stage with accompanying escorts, as some listeners tried to pull him out of the stage.
Are you tired of hearing Hollywood celebrity political tiers?
He incorrectly cited the response of the audience as "the end of civic discourse". If he spoke in a political rally, it's one thing. But he appeared at the film festival as a film producer accepted a prize. How does it have anything to do with politics?
The audience also had the right to exercise freedom of speech as it was. Even though he might want, Blum could not control his reaction to what he was saying-he could only steer what he said.
He probably expected a warmer welcome for his anti-Trump sermons. It's bad for him that many people are outraged by being lectured by hollywood hotshots.
