Some of the biggest TV networks in Hollywood and the larger entertainment industry have partnered to promote a gun-control initiative being financed by billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The effort, called “Wear Orange,” was started by Everytown for Gun Safety, a Bloomberg-backed gun-control group. The organization has been urging President Joe Biden to enact strict gun-control measures and formerly employed David Chipman, Biden’s pick for director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Wear Orange encouraged people to wear the color orange from June 4 to June 6 for both National Gun Violence Awareness Day and Wear Orange Weekend.
WarnerMedia, the multinational conglomerate owned by AT&T, partnered with Everytown in order to “help end gun violence and build safer communities across America.” While virtue-signaling about gun control, the studio has pumped out continuous gun violence scenes in its financed productions, such as in the movie “Joker” or television series “The Sopranos.”

Bad Robot Productions, a company run by Star Wars director J.J. Abrams, is also leaning in on the gun-control initiative. While it purports to care so deeply about ending violence, Abrams’ studio is the brains behind the series “Alias” and the “Mission: Impossible” movies, which include a significant amount of gun violence.
