In a seemingly “tolerant” world, more and more people are denouncing support for organizations that even so much as employ pro-life people and that’s exactly what happened to the anti-sex-trafficking charity Exodus Cry. Despite the organization not taking any particular stance on “reproductive” rights itself, Melissa McCarthy apologized for donating $20,000 to the charity after finding out its CEO made personal statements against abortion. She and HBO Max cut ties with the organization after  the revelation.

McCarthy posted the following statement on Instagram:

“Hi there. It has come to our attention that our 20 Days of Kindness, which is something — a kindness up that we started to kind of shine a light on 20 great charities — had one in there that, there’s no other way to say it, we blew it. We made a mistake and we backed a charity that upon proper vetting, stands for everything that we do not.”

She also stated that the donation was “pulled” from their “20 Days of Kindness” campaign.

McCarthy is a cast member in HBO Max’s new film, Superintelligence, in which she tries to help save humanity from becoming obliterated. Seems hypocritical, does it not? McCarthy on one hand apologizes for donating to a pro-life organization – who doesn’t even have anything to do with the pro-life/pro-choice debate or take a stance on the issue of abortion – but on the other hand, plays a character who is charged with making sure artificial intelligence understands the worth of humanity so AI doesn’t end the world. Interesting that McCarthy would apologize for donating to an organization who merely employs a personally pro-life person. Are humans not called to uphold the worth and dignity of others here on Earth?

HBO Max is not the only movie service which leans pro-choice and has hatred toward pro-life organizations or organizations associated with any person who is pro-life. Netflix threatened to refuse to film in Georgia after pro-life legislation was signed into law.

Not only did McCarthy and HBO Max backpedal on their donation to Exodus Cry, they also made sure to include the biggest abortion chain in the nation in their “20 Days of Kindness” campaign,  Planned Parenthood.

People can go to Exodus Cry’s website to learn more about their mission and donate.
