The ones that have a clue don't dare say so too loud on official platforms. They can barely talk about it at work without being looked at like they grew a second head. And in a business where you're always wondering where your next job is gonna be, nobody can risk doing so for long, lest they be considered... problematic.
I could say McConaughey is a local of Uvalde, born and raised, and thus has a personal stake in the matter.
I could also point out that he came within a hair's breadth of running for Governor of Texas this year, and there may be a political angle being played.
Would I like more actors to be better educated and able to speak freely? Absolutely.
But it is what it is. And making inaccurate cries of hypocrisy because they've fired guns onscreen is a bad argument that doesn't work.
I've done a stoner comedy and I don't indulge at all.
I've played a demon and I have nothing to do with Satanism.
Kindly give others of my ilk the same benefit of doubt.
