Harrison Ford Again Defends Homophobe Orson Scott Card and Ender’s Game – BOYCOTT ENDER’S GAME

Boycott Enders Game
“The issues that are coming up now are not part of the book, which is twenty-eight years old. So they don’t really concern me. [long pause] ’Concern me’ are really not the right words. I think it’s better to say that they are simply not issues; his point of view on some of these issues that are getting such attention now is not promoted by or part of the story that we’re telling.” –  Harrison Ford once again defending Orson Scott Card, author of the book that was adapted into his latest film Ender’s Gamein an interview with GQ

What Ford doesn’t mention as an issue is that Card has been paid BIG BUCKS for the movie rights and is also a co-producer on the film and will receive a percentage of the film;s profits and that of its sequels if it is a hit that he will undoubtedly use to fight LGBT rights.

I wonder if it would concern Harrison Ford if Orson Scott Card was a renowned anti-Semite or a member of the KKK?

Fuck you Harrison.  Han Solo and Indiana Jones would kick your ass if they ever heard you spew studio spin like this.

Ender’s Game opens Friday in theaters across the country.  BOYCOTT THIS MOVIE!  Do not support Orson Scott Cards anti-gay hate!

  1. Harrison Ford, and everyone else in Hollywood, KNEW that Card was a raging outspoken bigot; but instead of taking a stand, chose chose a big, fat paycheck. Never mind that he already has more money than most people could ever dream of.

    I will never watch anything with Ford in it, again.
