Jamie Lee Curtis claps back at Fox News' misguided tweets on guns

People on Twitter poked fun at Fox News over an online article that appeared to criticize gun control-campaigning actor Jamie Lee Curtis for brandishing a firearm in her new movie "Halloween".

"I am vocal about common-sense gun safety and gun laws", she told USA Today.

"It was just silly, because they were trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think", Curtis told USA Today on Wednesday. "For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban. I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons (that) were intended for self-defense for her and her family".

"I fully support the Bill of Rights".

Twitter users by the thousands are pointing out that playing a fictional character with morals that may differ from her own is Curtis's job as an actress.

The writer seems to totally misunderstand what gun control and gun reform mean, stating that Curtis is "preaching against them".

Notably, Curtis herself reportedly consulted on the types of weapons her character would use in the film, to defend herself against Halloween's villain and Strode's own personal boogeyman, Michael Myers. Not that of her character. "And honestly, if I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever".
