Following President Obama’s January 5 executive gun control announcement, the White House emailed “talking points” to celebrities which they, in turn, tweeted out in support of the new controls.
According to Fox News, the email said, “Below you have: short and long-term action steps, more info on POTUS’s actions, highlights from YOUR Tweets thus far (thank you!), and draft Tweets for you to build from if helpful.” It also encouraged them to use the hashtag “#StopGunViolence” and make ““make sure everyone… knows you have the President’s back.”
The email was sent by the White House Office of Public Engagement.
Here are some of the tweets the email suggested celebrities might want to send:
@POTUS is taking new commonsense steps to help #StopGunViolence.
@POTUS is taking steps to keep guns out of the wrong hands through background checks.
