Liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced Tuesday that he’s pulling his current movie from North Carolina theaters because of the state’s new LGBT law.
“I have asked my distributor NOT to book my film in any theater in North Carolina due 2 their bigoted law against LGBTQ ppl. They have agreed,” Moore tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
Moore’s film, “Where To Invade Next,” opened in February and is currently showing daily at the Carolina Theatre in Durham. The movie features Moore traveling to European countries to compare their economic and social policies with those of the U.S.
It’s unlikely that Republican supporters of House Bill 2 will be upset by Moore’s decision. One fan of Moore’s films tweeted that he’s “punishing fans in NC more than their lawmakers.”
