Moments ago, actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted:
Remember when I called for a boycott of Georgia a few years ago after the abortion ban bill was signed by the same awful Governor Kemp?
All of these industries choosing to do business in Georgia are giving money directly to white supremacy, misogyny and the demise of democracy.

At the time in May of 2019, Milano said in reaction to the heartbeat law in Georgia “I will do everything in my power to get as many productions as possible — including ‘Insatiable’ — to move out of this state which continues to put forth oppressive, hurtful policy that contradicts everything the entertainment industry stands for.”
Democrats are currently not happy with Georgia’s new voter laws they are labeling as voter suppression.
“There’s no rational argument against requiring state ID – provided for free to those who don’t have a driver’s license – for absentee ballots,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in response to criticism. “I implemented our first version of that last year; every absentee ballot request that came in through the state website was cross-referenced with the driver’s license database and other records. This also requires counties to offer more weekend voting and puts drop boxes into law for the first time – the State Board of Elections adopted them as an emergency measure last year in response to the pandemic and would have gone away without direct action by the General Assembly.
