When it comes to politics, entertainers have a vast platform and CBS television's Chuck Lorre knows exactly how he wants to use it.
The Mom inventor employed his show's vanity cards the production company logos that flashing by at the end of an episode to write an open letter fostering Julian Assange to hack Trump where it hurts.
“The job's only half-way done! ” Lorre wrote, referencing Assange's Wikileaks history and actions during the course of itselection. “You need to show us you're not only another gun for hire and hose down the other mosh cavity. You know what I'm talking about. The tax returns, the out-takes, maybe even some freaky-deaky-golden-leaky beauty pageantry video action. Time to step up, J-man.”
This isn't the first time Lorre has employed his shows' vanity cards for a political message, though it is one of the most overt. Right after the presidential election, cards for both Mom and his other creation, The Big Bang Theory , simply said “Uh-oh.”
An Open Letter to Julian Assange
Belated congrats on your whole Mr. Robot thing. You promised to use the Internet to uncover and bring down all the pervert bastards ruining our world, and boy did you nearly follow through. Julie baby! Boychick! The job's only half-way done! You need to show us you're not just another gun for hire and hose down the other mosh cavity. You know what I'm talking about. The tax returns, the out-takes, maybe even some freaky-deaky-golden-leaky beauty pageantry video action. Time to step up, J-man. If you wanna has become a cyber Fidel, or a digital Che, or a virtual Ho, you've gotta stop stuffing your face with arroz con pollo and get to work. It's time to go all Talking Heads on such a situation. Burning down the house, bubelah! You're one wikiwacky-leak away from being a hero. Or maybe a martyr. Ecuadorean potato soup, Ecuadorean puhtahto soup, they're usually the same thing.
Hugs to Vlad,
P.S. Love your hair, very nouveau Morlock
