Georgia governor forced to cancel Hollywood trip to avoid protesters [View all]

Brian Kemp is feeling mounting pressure after signing a radical anti-abortion bill into law.

Georgia's Republican governor, Brian Kemp, announced on Tuesday he would postpone a trip to Hollywood which previous governors made annually to meet with Hollywood movie executives due to intense blowback after Kemp signed a radical anti-abortion bill.

Kemp was scheduled to attend a Hollywood event on May 22 to promote Georgia's large film industry, which contributed more than $9 billion to the state's economy in 2018. The trip was scrapped after Georgia movie executives expressed fear that "tepid turnout and no-shows from studio chiefs could do lasting damage to the state's movie-making business," reports the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

Several A-list actors, including Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Alec Baldwin, and Don Cheadle, said they would no longer work in Georgia after Kemp and the GOP-led legislature initiated an all-out assault on women's health care. Other big names in the entertainment industry, including David Simon, creator of HBO's "The Wire," said they would not work in the state moving forward.

The bill they object to outlaws abortion after the sixth week of pregnancy, before many women even know they are pregnant. Both women who seek abortions and doctors who perform them could be jailed for up to 10 years if they break the law.
