“Your World” host Neil Cavuto and Deke Digital CEO Dave Maney targeted the actress in a segment (above) on Thursday over her tweet earlier this week, in which she expressed support for America’s wealthiest paying higher taxes.
Sorry RNC -rich people SHOULD pay higher taxes because they can afford it. End. Of. Story. xo a rich person http://t.co/fOAaS7X0l4
“What I think she’s doing in a certain way is being what I would call ‘selferous,’ which is being selfish while appearing to be generous,” Maney said. “Get my name in the news, get my box office going, and I’ll make it look like I want to give lots, and lots of money.”
The contributor came to the conclusion because the United State Treasury’s website allows any American citizen to make a donation to help reduce the national debt, and crowd-funded film “Veronica Mars” has only made about $3 million during its limited release in theaters.
“On the one hand, Kristen, I think, is a pretty savvy social media promoter of herself, and her film’s not doing so well at the box office, and I think it was a good way to kind of, you know, get her name in the news,” Maney continued. “Here we are talking about her.”
Yes, because every time a celebrity expresses themselves on Twitter, they’re clearly only motivated by the possibility of being mocked by Fox News.
What a selferous assumption.
Bell, who voiced Anna in “Frozen” — the Disney movie on track to becoming the most successful animated film in history — voiced her position on taxation in response to a not-so-sly series of videos from the Republican National Committee that attempt to market cool, young Republican Scott Greenberg.
