Mark Ruffalo, Marvel Studio’s “Hulk,” is pushing millions of fans to pressure NBC executives to stop hiring “white conservative” talent.
Hollywood’s current “Bruce Banner” is angry that right-leaning and conservative commentators like Nicole Wallace, Hugh Hewitt, and George Will are allowed airtime on NBC and MSNBC. The actor, known for supporting the campaigns of Democrat politicians and environmental groups, is urging over 3 million Twitter followers to quash the shift by Andrew Lack, the chairman of NBC News and MSNBC.
“Sign the petition: Tell @MSNBC @NBCNews to stop the white conservative hiring spree,” Mr. Ruffalo tweeted over the weekend.
“Lack has pushed out Black and Brown talent including Melissa Harris Perry, Alex Wagner, Touré Neblett, Dorian Warren, Michael Eric Dyson, Adam Howard, Jamil Smith, Jose Diaz-Balart and Tamron Hall,” the petition states. “In fact, Lack has a history of replacing Black on-air personalities wherever he goes.7 America needs voices like these now more than ever, and we need to make it clear to Lack that we are paying attention and there will be consequences. Tell NBC executives: Stop the white conservative hiring spree at MSNBC.”
