‘Unplanned’ star Ashley Bratcher says ‘it’s so incredible’ how movie is changing hearts and minds on abortion

Ashley Bratcher, the actress behind the brilliant portrayal of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood “employee of the year” turned pro-life activist is once again opening up about the impact the film has had on many viewers since its debut last month.

“The response had been incredibly positive. I mean, through it all – this has been the most rewarding and fulfilling role I’ve ever had in my entire career,” Bratcher told “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “To be able to hear someone come up to you and say, ‘I was so affected by your work that I decided instead of having an abortion, that I’m now going to have my child’ – I don’t know how to really explain the way that feels to know that you could potentially just saved a life. There’s not a lot of actors who get to say that, and I am so honored to be able to have a part of this.”

‘UNPLANNED’ ACTRESS ON TWITTER BACKLASH: ‘I COULDN’T EVEN FOLLOW MY OWN MOVIE’

The “War Room” actress said she’s been inundated with an outpour of support from women who have shared their own personal stories surrounding abortion and relishes in the opportunity to bring mainstream awareness to the subject of abortion.

“Yeah, I think I cry every time I talk to you guys. But, I can’t help it because it’s so incredible. It’s literally so incredible that people are being affected this much – this is why we did this movie,” Bratcher explained. “And not only that, but being able to share my story with you guys – it’s not only the movie, but being able to share my heart and the fact that I care so much and that, we really do want to help women that we’re here to walk alongside of them.”

Unplanned” initially struggled to find its footing with conventional publicizing as the film not only received an unexpected R rating but had its Twitter account temporarily suspended and 50,000 of its followers erased shortly after the film debuted.

Twitter said that the account was suspended in error.

“It wasn’t directly about this account. When an account violates the Twitter Rules, the system looks for linked accounts to mitigate things like ban evasion,” a spokeswoman explained at the time, via email. “In this case, the account was mistakenly caught in our automated systems for ban evasion.”

R RATING FOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE ‘UNPLANNED’ LAUGHABLE, WRONG

Bratcher had also previously criticized Google after the tech giant allegedly categorized the film as “propaganda,” which spurred backlash from social media.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” last week, “Unplanned” filmmakers and writers Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon discussed their frustration with the pushback they’ve been receiving when trying to market the film.

“[Twitter] closed us down on opening night, which, considering we had the account for nine months, was quite unusual,” Solomon told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy. “It just so happens that happens on opening night which, for a movie, is the most important night of the whole run.”

Konzelman added that he doesn’t think the tech company gave an adequate reason as to why it shut down the “Unplanned” account in the first place saying that he believes its pro-life message was to blame.

ABBY JOHNSON: ‘UNPLANNED’ IS MY STORY AND YOU CAN’T UNSEE IT

“Well, we are completely blocked at every turn. I mean, our primary difficulty was with Google, who refused to take any of the advertising for our film. All of our banner ads up until our date of release were refused,” Konzelman said. “Basically, they identified us with a conservative issue, which is the pro-life side of the abortion issue. They said, ‘your marketing is related to abortion.’ We said, ‘no it’s not. It’s a film.’ And they still refused us.”

The creative duo claimed that Netflix “has no appetite” for the film and that Amazon Prime will likely pass on it as well in favor of a pro-choice film.

Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver questioned CNN‘s coverage of the arrest of Julian Assange.

In an episode airing Sunday night, Oliver focused on CNN zeroing in on Assange’s appearance, with reporters calling out the WikiLeaks founder‘s beard and apparent aging.

The comedian noted that it was “a weird tone to take on story that is this important,” adding, “His arrest sparks a difficult debate about the efficacy of journalistic protections in the age of cyber espionage, but look how bad he looks! He like a peeled potato rolled in spider webs! He looks like Kenneth Branagh’s ghost!”

JULIAN ASSANGE USED EMBASSY AS ‘CENTER FOR SPYING,’ ECUADORIAN PRESIDENT SAYS

“This is a big deal,” Oliver said. “Julian Assange has been kicked out of the Ecuadorean embassy after spending seven years there, and part of the reason they wanted him out may be he did not make life easy for his hosts.”

Oliver then detailed Assange’s alleged offenses within the embassy, including skateboarding in the hallways, damaging equipment and his cat making a mess.

The host then pointed out the dangerous precedents that may be set if Assange is prosecuted for publication of American diplomatic and military secrets during the Iraq War.

“You are allowed to not like him, but America’s current attempt to extradite him hangs on a specific charge many journalism advocates find unsettling,” he said. “On its face, it currently seems more than a little flimsy,” the HBO late-night host said.

“Because the indictment’s language seems to criminalize a broad range of legally protected and common journalistic activity.”

“While it is still early at this point and we don’t know what else Assange may be charged with, or even if the U.K. will extradite him at all, this story is worrying for a number of reasons: One, because journalistic freedoms may be under threat. And, unfortunately, in order to protect them … I’m really sorry, everyone, but it might actually be time to defend Julian Assange.”

Longtime Bernie Sanders supporter Cardi B is reluctant to talk about Donald Trump, but she doesn’t mince words about the president.

“I hate him. I just hate him,” she fumed to Variety on Friday night. “I don’t even want to get political. I have a court case,” she added with a laugh.

As far as who she supports from the 2020 presidential election, Cardi said, “I’ma always go with Bernie. Bernie don’t say things to be cool. There’s pictures of him being an activist from a very, very, very long time [ago].”

She added, “As a matter of fact, I was watching the news and I saw this guy Tim Ryan, and his speech was very convincing to me. He really wants to give the United States free healthcare, and that’s a big plus. We need healthcare!”

The 28-year-old rapper made waves in January when she slammed Trump over the government shutdown.

CARDI B OPENS UP ABOUT SUFFERING FROM POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION

“I just wanna remind you that it’s been a little bit over three weeks. Trump is now ordering … federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid,” she fumed in a video posted to Instagram at the time … This s–t is really f–king serious, bro. This s–t is crazy. Our country is in a hellhole now — all for a f–king wall.”

Afterward, several Democrats debated retweeting her speech.

She later offered to deliver the rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union address.

Alyssa Milano is offering women who have experienced abortion a chance to tell their stories.

The “Mistresses” alum reached out to her social media followers via Twitter on Friday and said their “personal abortion” stories would be shared on her upcoming podcast “Sorry Not Sorry.”

“If you’d like to share your personal abortion story on my podcast to help shine a light on the importance of bodily autonomy, please record story on your voice memo app and email it to below address. If you’d like to remain anonymous please say so in your email. #SorryNotSorry,” the actress and human rights activist tweeted.

ALYSSA MILANO: ‘THE RED MAGA HAT IS THE NEW WHITE HOOD’

Last week, Milano and some 30 Georgia-based TV and film workers urged Republican Gov. Brian Kemp to veto an abortion ban that has drawn scorn from Hollywood figures.

ALYSSA MILANO, 49 OTHER CELEBRITIES THREATEN GEORGIA WITH ‘LOSS OF BILLIONS’ OVER NEW ABORTION BILL

The so-called “heartbeat bill” would prohibit most abortions in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can come as early as six weeks into a pregnancy — before many women know they are having a child. It would not apply in the case of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is in danger.

Georgia’s current law allows abortions to be performed up to 20 weeks into the pregnancy. The bill will allow rape and incest victims to have an abortion at up to 20 weeks, but would require them to file an official police report, 11 Alive reported.

Milano previously slammed the state as “totally corrupt” after Kemp won the gubernatorial election over Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams.

“There are over 20 productions shooting in Georgia,” she tweeted. “Is the entertainment industry willing to support the economy of a totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy; where the winner isn’t the best choice for the people but the best schemer or crook?”

John Legend slams GOP lawmaker Thomas Massie for mocking John Kerry’s political science degree

Singer John Legend weighed in on Twitter after Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY. doubled down on his assertion that former Secretary of State John Kerry is pushing “pseudoscience.”

Massie got into an odd exchange with Kerry this week during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing to talk about climate change. Massie jabbed Kerry for questioning the credentials of President Trump’s advisers by mocking his political science degree from Yale.

Massie doubled down on his criticism in a tweet Thursday.

“When I asked Kerry if he had a science degree, he answered ‘no’ but forgot to turn his microphone on.  The left has been using his flub to conceal what this exchange proved which is Kerry admitted he doesn’t have a science degree, even though his degree says ‘science.’”

“Bro.  Please tell me you’re not this dumb in real life. Please tell me you’re joking,” Legend tweeted in response.

He added: “Next our great congressman will grill the high school Home Economics teacher on the Fed’s monetary policy. ‘You profess to be an expert on Economics, do you???!!!!’”

During the hearing, Kerry fired back at Massie after he implied that his political science degree makes him unqualified to talk about climate change.

“Is it a political science degree?” Massie, who has two engineering degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, asked.

“Yes, it’s political science,” the former Massachusetts senator said.

“So, how do you get a bachelor of arts in science?” the congressman asked.

“Well it’s liberal arts education and – it’s a bachelor,” Kerry said.

“So, it’s not really science. I think it’s somewhat appropriate that somebody with a pseudoscience degree is here pushing pseudoscience in front of our committee,” Massie said before Kerry fired back.

“Are you serious? I mean this is really happening here?” the former secretary of state asked.

Actress Debra Messing took to Twitter on Wednesday where she sounded off on the U.S. Army for helping fund the construction of a wall on the southern border.

The 50-year-old “Will & Grace” star is rarely shy about voicing her political beliefs on social media. In the past, she’s slammed the Trump administration over its take on abortion, immigration and environmental issues.

DEBRA MESSING SUPPORTS ALYSSA MILANO’S DECISION TO DISTANCE HERSELF FROM WOMEN’S MARCH LEADERS

In a recent tweet, the star shared an article reporting on the U.S. Department of Defense announcing its April 2019 contracts. The Army will pay roughly $976 million across two multi-million dollar contracts for border wall construction in Arizona and New Mexico.

“This is disgusting and irresponsible,” Messing wrote of the Army’s decision.

This isn’t the first time that Messing has used the word “disgusting” to voice her displeasure with policies she disagrees with. In May 2018 she shared an article claiming the Trump administration is moving to reverse rules barring hunters on public lands and told those who support the president they are going to hell.

“This is so DISGUSTING. THIS is where you are putting your time and energy ??? Killing sleeping bear cubs? What about health care? Gun violence Ag POC by cops? Women’s rights? KEEPING OUR ELECTIONS SAFE? Good G/d you are all going to hell,” the tweet read.

She previously took fellow actress Susan Sarandon to task over the issue of family separation at the border in a fiery tweet from September. When Variety posted a video in which Sarandon said Trump inspired more women and people of color to run for office, Messing pulled no punches in her response.

“STFU SUSAN. Oh yes, PLEASE let’s give Trump CREDIT. I mean how else are you able to walk out on the street. Convince yourself that that this CATASTROPHE of a President who you said was better that HRC IS NOT ripping children away from parents seeking asylum, holding children,” Messing responded.

Directors of the anti-abortion film “Unplanned” believe Twitter banned the film’s account over its conservative message after the social media giant blamed its brief suspension of the movie’s account on an error last month.

The film is based on the memoir of the same name by author Abby Johnson and tells the story behind the real-life woman who was the clinic director of a Planned Parenthood only to later change her thinking and become a pro-life advocate.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” Thursday, “Unplanned” filmmakers and writers Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon discussed their frustration with Twitter.

“[Twitter] closed us down on opening night, which, considering we had the account for nine months, was quite unusual,” Solomon told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy. “It just so happens that happens on opening night which, for a movie, is the most important night of the whole run.”

“Well, we are completely blocked at every turn. I mean, our primary difficulty was with Google, who refused to take any of the advertising for our film. All of our banner ads up until our date of release were refused,” Konzelman said. “Basically, they identified us with a conservative issue, which is the pro-life side of the abortion issue. They said, ‘your marketing is related to abortion.’ We said, ‘no it’s not. It’s a film.’ And they still refused us.”

‘UNPLANNED’ ACTRESS ON TWITTER BACKLASH: ‘I COULDN’T EVEN FOLLOW MY OWN MOVIE’

Twitter told Fox News Thursday that the page was not directly targeted but was erroneously caught in its automated system.

“When an account violates the Twitter Rules, the system looks for linked accounts to mitigate things like ban evasion,” the spokesperson told us. “In this case, the account was mistakenly caught in our automated systems for ban evasion.”

Konzelman testified at a free speech hearing in D.C. Wednesday in which lawmakers grilled tech giants about their treatment of conservatives and anti-abortion activists.

He continued: “Our standpoint is, if you are conservative, why do you have to jump over hurdles to be heard? Why are those presumptive obstacles put in your path to start off with? We shouldn’t have to defend our right to speak.”

R RATING FOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE ‘UNPLANNED’ LAUGHABLE, WRONG

When asked by Doocy what Solomon would say to Democrats who say that conservative complaints of social media bias aren’t real, Solomon said he understands the impulse.

“If I was a Democrat, I would say the same thing,” he said. “I mean, this is a freedom of speech issue. Not only that, they are preventing commerce. We have investors, people who want to make the movies. And our business is being impeded by these social media conglomerates.”

The creative duo claimed that Netflix “has no appetite” for the film and that Amazon Prime will likely pass on it as well in favor of a pro-abortion film.

CNN’s Don Lemon says Barr is doing Trump’s ‘dirty work’

CNN anchor Don Lemon appeared to grow heated during his opening monologue on Wednesday night in reaction to Attorney General William Barr’s “outrageous” testimony to a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, where he said that “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Lemon slammed the attorney general for providing “absolutely no evidence” to back up his bombshell claim during the Senate hearing, something he argued was “right up the president’s alley.”

“This is a transparent attempt by the top law enforcement officer in the country to make an incendiary charge without a shred of evidence and then dodge responsibility for even saying it, not to have to stand by it. Democrats are furious,” Lemon said furiously. “It increasingly looks like he is doing the president’s dirty work here and that is exactly the job Trump wants everybody in this administration to do.”

Barr later clarified in the hearing: “I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred; I’m saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it, that’s all.”

The CNN anchor accused the attorney general of “playing into the president’s conspiracy theories about a Deep State that he thinks is out to get him” and rejected Barr’s assertion that then-candidate Trump wasn’t warned that Russia would attempt to infiltrate his campaign.

“Maybe he wasn’t listening… but they advised him,” Lemon said of the president. “But Barr put it out there not only without any evidence but in contradiction to known facts. He put it out there and now the damage is done.”

Lemon then questioned why Trump has taken a victory lap over the Mueller Report despite not seeing it, suggesting the president has “reason to fear what’s coming.”

Chelsea Handler blames ‘white privilege’ for acting like a ‘spoiled brat’ about Trump’s election

Chelsea Handler explained that her ‘white privilege’ is responsible for her acting like a ‘spoiled brat’ following the election of Donald Trump as president.

The 44-year-old comedian spends much of her time in the spotlight since 2016 lambasting Trump and his administration. She previously noted that the election sent her to a therapist and got her hooked on marijuana, she has sent a flurry of politically charged tweets and even voiced a jocular attraction to Robert Mueller.

CHELSEA HANDLER ‘NOT EMBARRASSED’ BY SEXUAL ATTRACTION TO ROBERT MUELLER

Appearing on Tuesday’s episode of “The View” the star was asked about her latest politically motivated project, a documentary about white privilege at Netflix.

“White people certainly don’t want to talk about it,” she said of tackling race relations in the U.S. “So I figured, start with myself so, you know, I can hang myself out to dry at my own privilege, at my own reaction to the presidency. Like a spoiled brat, you know, the way so many people were crying and screaming. It was like, ‘well, nothing in your life has ever gone that wrong before?’ I really had to take a look and go, ‘no.’ Yes, my brother died, that was traumatic and awful. But I’ve never been hungry, I’ve never been starving, I’ve never been discriminated against that I knew about.”

Handler continued: “I think it’s important to have uncomfortable conversations about race because we have a big situation that’s happening. And I thought, like an idiot, Barack Obama being elected was the end of racial tension in this country, and that’s not the case.”

CHELSEA HANDLER’S MOST INFLAMMATORY TWEETS AND CONTROVERSIAL MOMENTS

In the interview, Handler noted that she came close to having a mental breakdown after Trump won the presidency in a tight race against Hillary Clinton. However, she says therapy helped her understand why Trump’s rise to power affected her so deeply and made her want to take action.

“I realized what he signified was actually what happened during my childhood when it became undone. When my whole world fell apart. I lost the two most important men in my life,” she said.

The star described finding out that her father had another child while engaged to her mother. She says that his secretive and morally ambiguous behavior reminds her a lot of the president.

“But he was a lot less powerful, thankfully,” she concluded.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes is facing criticism for his praise of freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and what he calls her “consistent” voice in human rights violations in the Middle East.

Omar took to Twitter on Tuesday to call out Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi during his visit to the White House by expressing solidarity with the Egyptian people.

“No ally is above reproach. We should not be enabling broadscale human rights violations,” Omar tweeted from her official congressional account. “We must show solidarity with those brave Egyptians who continue to struggle for their internationally-recognized rights.”

One liberal cable news host took notice.

“I’d say Omar is one of the most consistent voices for human rights in the Middle East across the various governments and regimes,” Hayes declared.

Many blasted Hayes’ tweet, some calling it a “delusional” take.

Others invoked what they suggest is Omar’s silence of Hamas and the terror organization’s continued violence against Israelis.
