Alyssa Milano Says Until Georgia Cancel Restrictive Voter Law She Will Not Do Business There, As Supports Will Smith’s Decision

A shortly after republicans in Georgia stated had passed sweeping new restrictions on voting, Hollywood star and well-known activist Alyssa Milano went to her verified Instagram account to react to the changes in the law.

On April 12, Milano released a screenshot of the report announcing that Will Smith will not shoot his latest film ‘Emancipation‘ in Georgia because of the voting restrictions. Alongside the photo, Milano expressed in the caption section that she will not do business there as Smith would.

‘The Now’ star began her message by saying that “the entertainment industry has always been about inclusion, diversity, and opportunity” and continued as follows:

“When state legislation strips their state of the things that artists fight for, as Georgia has done—we will take our money to a state that aligns with our belief in democracy, freedom, equality and equity. If you’re making it harder for any group to vote, we will not do business in your state.”

According to the Hollywood star, in case a state wants to bring a massive film production into, they must offer the “same tax incentive for production that Georgia offered.” Milano added that states’ film commission needs to call film studios and tells them to come to shoot in their state. She concluded her recommendations for the states with the following words:

“And make a promise as a state to fight for the progressive values we believe in as an industry.”

In her statement, the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star also reminded that the entertainment & film – TV industry is the second-largest export of the United States, and the members of the industry, hold a lot of power on their hands. The 48-year-old star warned:

 “With that power comes the responsibility to do the right thing and protect our democracy.”

We will see if the Republicans in Georgia step back or not after all of these reacts.
