Time to boycott Danny Glover movies

Why is it that Hollywood celebrities continue to turn a blind eye to the appalling human rights records of socialist dictators like Mao, Stalin, Castro and now, Chavez?

What is wrong with Danny Glover that he supports socially destructive megalomaniacs like Chavez?
The Venezuelan government has approved nearly $US18 million ($A22 million) to finance a film by Hollywood star Danny Glover, one of President Hugo Chavez's closest celebrity supporters.

Venezuela will tap proceeds from a recent bond sale with Argentina to finance Toussaint, a movie Glover plans to direct documenting the life of Haitian revolution leader Toussaint Louverture.
Time to boycott Danny Glover movies, which is a shame as I liked some of his work.

I don't think it's necessary to boycott all Glover movies. Any boycott would probably work much better if it's narrowly targeted--just boycott the Chavez-funded one(s). I know I will.
