Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp calls out “C-List” actors threatening to boycott the state over the heartbeat bill.

According to Deadline, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp does not seem too bothered by the idea of a Hollywood boycott over the “heartbeat bill”.

Over the weekend, Kemp dismissed the boycotts as a “squawk” from “C-list celebrities” angry over Georgia and other states have passed abortion laws.

“He doesn’t seem to understand that men are a part of Impregnation. Somehow everything is always women’s responsibility,” Patricia Arquette tweeted, who has won an Academy Award,  BAFTA Award, Critics’ Choice Award, Golden Globe Award, Independent Spirit Award, Satellite Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award, along with many other critics prizes, for Best Supporting Actress.

Other Hollywood names who have spoken out against the law include the following Jameela Jamil, Natalie Portman, Judd Apatow, Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, Ron Howard, and Jason Bateman. It is important to note, Jason Bateman, who is currently filming season 3 of “Ozark” said he would not return if the bill becomes a law. Ron Howard also said his production company “Imagine Entertainment” will no longer film in Georgia if the bill becomes law.

Gov. Kemp delivered his response to the boycott at Georgia’s Republican convention. “I understand that some folks don’t like this new law. I’m fine with that,” he said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We’re elected to do what’s right – and standing up for precious life is always the right thing to do.”

Kemp added: “We are the party of freedom and opportunity. We value and protect innocent life — even though that makes C-list celebrities squawk.”
