Russian Trolls Are Waging War on Morgan Freeman
Russian media is waging war on silky-voiced siren Morgan Freeman in response to a short video of the actor calling out the country for meddling in the 2016 presidential election, the Washington Post reports.
Freeman filmed the two-minute video for director Rob Reiner’s nonprofit, the Committee to Investigate Russia, in an attempt to rally Americans to question the Kremlin’s alleged role in influencing Trump’s win. In the video, Freeman says Putin is a “former KGB spy” who has “set his sights” on America, and calls on Trump to condemn Russia’s alleged interference in the election.
“We have been attacked,” Freeman says in the video, which dropped last Monday. “We are at war.”
