Mila Kunis Causes Jim Beam Boycott by Trolling Mike Pence

Mila Kunis is very much pro-choice. So it should come as no surprise that the Jim Beam spokesperson isn’t a big fan of Vice President Mike Pence, who is one of the most active anti-abortion Republicans in Washington, D.C.

To protest his policies, the A Bad Moms Christmas star makes monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in the former Indiana governor’s name. “Every month to his office he gets a little letter that says ‘an anonymous donation has been made in your name,’” the actress, 34, revealed during a November 2 appearance on Conan. She prefaced the revelation by saying: “This is when a lot of hate mail comes my way.”

Kunis was right about that. Now some pro-lifers are protesting in return by letting the makers of Jim Beam know that they will be drinking the brand’s competitors instead.

“@JimBeam After drinking Jim Beam for 30 years Im done. Your spokeswoman Kunis donates to Planned Parenthood in Pence’s name. #BoycottBeam,” wrote one person on Twitter. Added another: “My family has been drinking Jim Beam for many decades. However, that stops today till they fire Mila Kunis as spokesperson. #BoycottJimBeam.”

Kunis and husband Ashton Kutcher, who are parents of daughter Wyatt, 3, and son Dimitri, 11 months,  both endorsed Hillary Clinton. In a 2015 interview with U.K. paper The Telegraph, Kunis noted that she wants Wyatt to grow up strong and believes electing a female president would help with that. “I would love her to have a woman [in the White House],” Kunis told The Telegraph. “To think, ‘If there’s a woman president, what is there that I can’t do?’”
