Jon Voight Says Celebs Are Teaching Treason, Calls the Women's March 'Dangerous'

Jon Voight, one of President Donald Trump‘s biggest supporters in Hollywood, is speaking out to condemn young stars for expressing their political views and supporting the Women’s March.

The 78-year-old Oscar-winning actor and father of Angelina Jolie went as far as saying that celebs like Miley Cyrus and Shia LaBeouf are teaching treason to their fans.

“[It's] been very destructive, this marching against the government and against the president,” Jon told TMZ. When asked if he was referring to the Women’s March, he said that the right to protest is “what the first amendment is all about, but what was the march about?”

“The march was against the government and against the president, trying to denigrate his office and his presidency. And that’s no good,” Jon added. “When you see the young people, like Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus, and they have a lot of followers, young people are looking at them and what are they teaching? They’re teaching treason. They’re teaching going up against the government [and] not accepting the will of the people on this presidency and it’s a very sad day when I see this.”

“I find it’s a very sad thing for me to witness what [this Hollywood group is] doing, but they have a huge amount of influence, so it’s not so good,” he concluded.
