Sophia Bush: Equality Matters, Boycott Russia

Sophia Bush: Equality Matters, Boycott Russia

Sophia Bush shops the afternoon away on Wednesday (August 21) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 31-year-old actress loaded up her car with her goodies before heading on her way!

“Beating people in public? Shame on #Russia – #BoycottSochi #BoycottRussia” Sophia tweeted about boycotting Russia and the Sochi Olympics for anti-equality stances.

“1. For the record, I fully support our athletes. I think they are incredible people. I cannot, however, support Russia making a fortune off tourism from countries where human rights matter, during the Olympic Games. If we spend money there, we are virtually voting with our dollars, and saying, albeit silently, that we have no problem with the way they are treating their citizens. #EqualityMatters for ALL,” Sophia tweeted.

FYI: Sophia is carrying a Coach tote bag.

@jon:
Well A LOT of people DO value her opinion very much. She has a huge fan following and gets plenty of press coverage.
So you can stop with the unnecessary and misplaced bitterness.

Sophia is so pretty. I like this style and she is so well spoken I admire that quality.

Its funny how terrible actors become activists.She realized that she is terrible actress,and now she fights for human rights.Yeah,right.

@Eliza:
Wow….you sound like one jealous b*tch. It’s pretty funny actually. It’s hilarious to see people lash out at Sophia when they see Sophia getting so much attention while their OTH favorite is barely given any acknowledgement. Even without Sophia acting at the moment, there are new articles written about her by the media almost everyday, and that bothers you doesn’t it?? Lol
Sophia has made it clear since her teenage years that her number one passion is activism and politics. After the ending of OTH, she finally got the opportunity to get dive into what she loves most. And it’s not because she’s a “terrible actress.” The woman has great acting chops and if she spent even half of her time auditioning for roles,etc as she does with her activism efforts, she would definitely be ACTING in something. But right now she doesn’t care too much about being an actress and when she does, she’ll be just fine.
So try focusing on something positive instead of lashing out at people as if your life depends on it.

Sarah – totally agree with you. After working for 9 years lots and lots of actors have taken time off. But Sophia is using her time to give back to the world..Its funny how ppl have nothing to hit back at her with will attack something as noble as the work she does…

Yes, lets boycott Russia for their homophobia. And lets boycott the USA for their murderous wars. And lets boycott Australia for their treatment of refugees. And lets boycott Britain for the crimes of their empire. And lets boycott China for their human rights violations. And lets boycott Israel for their apartheid state. And lets boycott France for their Islamaphobia. And…..
