FACTS

    Social media exploded Monday evening when former Daily Beast journalist Timothy Burke tweeted a video of actor Vince Vaughn talking with President Trump at the College Football National Championship game in New Orleans.  Burke captioned the video, “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”

    LEFT

    After Burke posted the video, left-wing Twitter erupted with calls for Vaughn to be “cancelled,” essentially imposing a career death sentence to the actor’s career.  Other outlets claimed there was no real outrage, pointing instead at conservatives for blowing the whole thing out of proportion to play on their supporters’ emotions.  Aaron Rupar, writing for Vox, noted that it is common knowledge that Vaughn has supported Conservative politicians and causes in the past.  

    RIGHT

    Right-wing twitter quickly responded to Burke’s tweet.  Right-leaning independent journalist Mike Cernovich sarcastically replied, “I, too, cannot bear to watch a video of two men speaking civilly.” (Twitter).  Fox News contributor David Aaro bemoaned the current state of division in our society, comparing the Left’s present criticism of Vaughn with their condemnation of Ellen Degeneres for sitting next to former President George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys game in October.
