First Amendment for Entertainers Too

April 05, 1993

Open letter to Gil Cates:

Entertainers and others in the spotlight are constantly exploited for their celebrity, and they are always asked to appear and speak at public events for the benefit of others.

Therefore, we find it surprising and hypocritical that Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon and Richard Gere are being criticized and censored for stating their beliefs in a concise and open manner.

Whether one agrees or disagrees with the views expressed by Robbins, Sarandon or Gere, we'd like to remind Cates that the First Amendment also applies to entertainers.
