Mila Kunis’ treatment of Vice President Mike Pence has left a bad taste in some peoples’ mouths — and they have no plans of washing that taste away with Jim Beam in the future.
Critics of Kunis hit up Twitter to call for a boycott of Jim Beam, after actress and Jim Beam spokesperson Kunis told talk-show host Conan O’Brien that she donates to Planned Parenthood in Pence’s name a a protest of his political stances.
“I apologize if I’m offending anybody. It’s not so much a prank as much as I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do,” Kunis told O’Brien during Thursday’s episode of his talk show. “And so as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.”
The actress continued, “Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says like, ‘An anonymous donation has been made in your name.’ I don’t look at it as a prank, this is like, I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of doing it. It’s a peaceful protest.”
Kunis’ comments gave birth to another protest on social media.
“Tell @JimBeam to stop having @MilaKunis as their spokes idiot… #BoycottJimBeam,” wrote one Kunis detractor.
“@JimBeam Your spokesperson offends me. #BoycottJimBeam,” another response to Kunis’ comments read.
“@JimBeam so you guys are sponsoring someone who is promoting Planned Parenthood I will no longer drink your beverage. #BoycottJimBeam,” another voice weighed in.
TheWrap has reached out to a Jim Beam spokesperson for comment.
