Sophia Bush Slams 'Bigots' for Hateful Comments

Sophia Bush Slams 'Bigots' for Hateful Comments

Sophia Bush shops at the Madewell boutique on Thursday (January 19) in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old actress recently talked politics, saying, “I will not vote for a candidate who thinks you can ‘pray away the gay,’ I will not vote for a candidate who thinks that he has more rights to my uterus than I do, I will not vote for a candidate who thinks that it’s okay to dump toxic waste in the ocean.”

Sophia later took to her WhoSay page to fire back at critics who told her to “kill yourself b—-.”

“I believe in an America where everyone, regardless of party, economic status, sexual orientation, or religious conviction, can live freely. THAT is The UNITED States,” she wrote.

“So why don’t all of you bigots and bitchers work on being proud Americans, who lead by a love-thy-neighbor example, instead of promoting intolerance that this country is supposed to have risen above. Seriously,” Sophia added.

  • cmac

    I support you Sophia! Could not agree more!

  • Rachelle

    Love her! She is TOTALLY on point

  • ****VOTE PAUL****

    yep

  • carrie

    @No Other Choice: That’s not fair. Obama can sing.

  • Creed

    Applause for you Sophia

  • No Other Choice

    yes I do Lisa
    two separate thoughts

  • sillyme

    So, tell me, Sophia…will you vote for a candidate that believes babies born alive after a botched abortion should be thrown away or left to die, or that a woman should be able to have an abortion up to the ninth month? Because that’s what our current president believes. Plus, you do realize our current president is AGAINST gay marriage, like the majority of the black community, don’t you?

  • Gossipgirl

    Believe me Sophia, none of the candidates are interested in your uterus. As Reagan once said, “it’s the economy stupid”.

  • Gossipgirl

    PS: I have watched the debates and noone is advocating dumping toxic waste in the ocean, or trying to stop Gay people from having equal rights. In any event, Ms. Bush would not vote for a Republican, so why does she care. And it’s okay if she moves to Canada, she might actually find work up there.

  • Oh

    She benefits every day from the opression of others in her nation.

  • oh please

    Obama is the worst thing that ever happened to this country people are so concerned with his celebrity that they dont look at what hes doing. Its truly sad that people have lost all hope for their own country and will just vote for someone simply because they like his personality.

  • 43

    @oh please: Obama is probably the best. The problem is that people have over estimated the president’s power.

  • situa

    @sillyme: The majority of the black community? Wow the racists have come out already. Its amazing that they always get the thumbs up.

  • Mary

    @oh please:
    Are we forgetting about who caused all of the problems we’re having now and did nothing about them? Bush. Obama isn’t the best president out there, but you have to give him some credit. Cleaning up someone’s mess isn’t easy. At least he’s trying to reverse the damage that was done. If I had people criticizing my every move, I’d be skeptical of what to do next too. I think everyone that has something negative to say should try running a country themselves.

  • oh please

    sigh no point arguing with people with a false sense of perception that still hold on the excuse that’s he trying to clean up someone else mess when hes actually perpetuating it.

  • l0nely-girl

    Bunch of conservatives on this page! You were spot on Sophia! Love ya~

  • umm

    and i am sure yall are OWS punks…maybe if you listen to the GOP candidates you might like. W forever

  • Warren

    Hot looking woman!

  • ummmm

    I can’t believe some of the comment I am seeing on this post. I don’t usually leave comments on post but some of you ppl need to get a clue. Saying most african-americans are against homosexuality? Just ignorant. I’m gonna pray some of you conservatives get some sense.

  • keeley

    i like this outfit alot.
    maybe not the shoes.
    but everything else.
    and that silver necklace.

  • Sarah

    She’s not the brightest tool in the shed. She’s upset that others are attacking her for her opinions that are way out there and do not accurately reflect a group of people from another party, yet she’s says that you shouldn’t hate against other people for doing or being free. Sophia, doesn’t that include them having the beliefs that they want, the freedom of speech that you are enjoying? Try not to be a hypocrite next time.

  • ewww

    Sophia Bush is so stupid.

  • GreenCAT

    Sophia, you go girl!

  • Tric

    From what I’ve been seeing, more then 99.9999999% of people agree with Sophia and are completely on her side. So I guess what I’m trying to say is—haters can SUCK it.

  • -_-

    @Tric: doesn’t seem like it judging from this post, and how did her opinion reach 99.9999999% of the world population..

  • Tric

    @-_-: Well seeing as how this story broke out way before JJ posted this just a few hours ago and judging by other peoples reactions and comments on Twitter and other sites, I’d say it’s pretty safe to say that most people agreed with Sophia. Enough said.
    And FYI, 30 something comments(half of which don’t even make any sense) on this blog post so far (most of which consisted of 2/3people going back and forth) doesn’t mean anything.

  • May

    Thank you for posting this Jared!!
    Love it!!!

  • Dasha

    Why don’t you just shut up and focus on your career, oh wait…right she doesn’t have one

  • giuseppe sallo

    OBAMA is simply a puppet. He is being controlled. It felt like his campaign was like a “movie” and he was “playing a character.” Sad reality when you don’t have control of the govt. Sophia speaks the truth, but what baffles me is she’s a Romney support. VOTE for Ron Paul! Real Awareness. Real Change.

  • Emma

    Why talk politics on a celebrity-page? haha. funny. BTW is she engaged toAustin, she is wearing a ring on the certain finger :)

  • proud non-american

    no wonder america is going to the dogs — your country is full of hateful bigots. serves you right, assholes!

  • Charlie

    @Mary: I’m a student of political science and I can tell you that change happens over time. I get why the majority of the people are angry, but one cannot forget of the mess Bush left behind. Change takes time.

  • dumb

    @Gossipgirl:

    bill clinton said that, get it right.

    Thumb up Thumb down -7

    @sillyme: The majority of the black community? Wow the racists have come out already. Its amazing that they always get the thumbs up.
    //////////////////////////////////
    Thank you. I was wondering what race had to do with
    Sopia’s comments. Just goes to show that sillyme and her like are always seeing race first. This is why the Republicans party will slowly die away as this country gets browner

  • I say…

    Most of the time the MEDIA creates a Mountain out of a mole hill!

  • BRADY007

    Sophia you have made LOTS of new fans!! You’re a real American hero. Adding you to the list of women I admire in Hollywood and out of it.

  • brenda

    Sofia for President.

  • Gossipgirl

    @dumb: It’s still the economy, stupid! Thanks for the lecture. Tis is the real problem with the country, people cannot disagree without being nasty, bitter and attacking, including celebrities. Okay, we get it……Conservatives are evil and mean…..Liberals will save us and the world, because they know best and are not to blame for anything ever.

  • Emily

    I agree with her. Keep your religion to yourself and discuss issues that matter. Until Repubs figure out how to do that they will keep losing.

  • Liz

    Here’s the thing. Not only is her tirade hypocritical , it’s just plain pathetic. That crappy TV show of hers is long over and she has no work. Media can be worked in MANY ways. From Kim K. style “media whoring” to stay relevant all the way to other other spectrum aka Sophia Bush style which is stating bold, political remarks that are bound to get some kind of attention. Either way, a MEDIA WHORE. But look, obviously its working as this is currently the most popular post… on a lighter note, She should NOT wear skinny jeans, oh lord.

  • Kayla

    For starters, Sophia Bush looks GORGEOUS.
    Love her face and love her outfit.
    Second, Her comments were bang-on and I for one(and know many people agree) support her statements.
    Third, to the moron aka Liz who is so worried about Sophia’s career. Don’t stress over it sweetheart because she just got signed by the biggest talent agency in Hollywood and has been getting plenty of offers. She said earlier last year that as soon as OTH wraps up, she wants to focus on her favorite charities and organizations for a while before getting back to the big screen and the small screen. And after working for 9 years straight on a show that filmed on the other side of the country from her home….don’t blame her for wanting to take it slow.
    So stop acting like a fortune teller and spare us from your pathetic rants.

  • offtheproperty

    Everyone should be gay, don’t you think?

  • Sabrina

    Bravo, Sophia :-)! Finally someone who speaks out against those gay-bashing bible-thumping bigoted idiots!

  • lol

    @Kayla: SHE CAN NOT ACT. Her face is pretty, but she’s talentless and has a horrible body shape. that might put a damper on her “acting” career.. fyi, There is a reason why you are on a CW tv show for almost a decade..

  • Liz

    You know what Sophia? No one cares what you think. Seriously. No one.

  • Liz

    Hey Sabrina! Muslims don’t agree with gay marriage, abortions, etc., and they study the Quran daily. Why don’t you pick on them? And while you’re at it, give them your home address! Let me know how that goes. IDIOT!

  • hokiegirl517

    Love Sophia and her views!!! :)

  • Charlie

    @Sabrina: FYI, I’m Christian and I agree with gay marriage, so don’t generalize. And don’t be a disrespectful bigot, cause that’s what you sound like right now, ironically enough.

  • Charlie

    @Liz: I don’t think that anyone should pick on anyone, but I’m sick to death with everyone targeting Christians, not every Christian out there is a bigot. So when you attack a group of people, assuming everyone has the same opinion, you are only alienating yourself and making things worse.
