Mila Kunis’ Trolling of Mike Pence Sparks Jim Beam Boycott Push

Actress told Conan O’Brien that she donates to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name

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.
