J.J. Abrams, the Hollywood director, producer, and head of Bad Robot, is one of over 200 corporate CEOs who are urging the U.S. Senate to pass “gun safety legislation.” This vague term, which they haven’t defined and left open for interpretation, was not defined by them.
J.J. Abrams’ career has seen him manage many TV and movie shows that sensationalized gun play and fire arms, such as the ABC series Alias and Star Wars movies and Mission: Impossible movies. He and Hollywood studios made billions of dollars in box office revenue.
The CEOs appealed to legislators in an open letter they posted online.
They stated that the Senate should urgently pass gun safety legislation to prevent more deaths and injuries.
The letter did not provide any examples of the type of legislation they were looking to support.
The CEOs of Oaktree Capital Management and the San Francisco 49ers are among the signatories.
J.J. Abrams is one of Hollywood’s most left-leaning directors. Bad Robot published an internal guide for employees in 2020 to “dismantle white supremacy at Work” and encouraged employees to create an environment that is “anti-racist”.
