Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon has been dropped by her talent agency UTA for comments she made at a pro-Palestine rally.
‘There are a lot of people that are afraid, afraid to be Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country, so often subjected to violence.”
Sarandon, who isn’t Jewish, also added:
“There’s a terrible thing that’s happened where antisemitism has been confused with speaking up against Israel. I am against antisemitism. I am against Islamophobia.”
Of course, we talk for weeks about those statements, debating the merits and complexities of the issues plaguing the Middle East, but that’s not why we’re here. No, we’re here to talk about Susan Sarandon’s jugs.
And it’s all thanks to her son, Miles Robbins.
You see, when Susan was let go from her agency, a number of people took to Twitter to offer support for her, defending her statements. And they did so by sharing this particular video:
Why this video? No clue, but DAMN is she looking good for 77 years old. I mean, we all know that video wouldn’t fly in Palestine but that’s besides the point…
The video earned some deserved viral attention and ol’ Miles (her son with fellow actor Tim Robbins), took to the internet to ask people to stop sharing that video of her looking like a stone cold fox, and shocker, it only garnered more attention for the video:
“Ok, I’m really grateful to see people on Twitter defending my mom amidst a new era of McCarthyist blacklisting but can you PLEASE stop using the clip of her getting her hair done with her honkers out.”

Yeah, by hilariously calling out the video, Miles accomplished quite the opposite of what he intended. Hell, I probably wouldn’t even be blogging about it had he not asked people to stop. Funny how that works…
