Jane Pitt Criticized, Threatened Over Anti-Gay Letter

by at . Comments

Brad Pitt's mother, Jane Pitt, has been targeted by critics and even with death threats after a letter she wrote last week to her local Missouri newspaper.

Jane Pitt's letter expressed support for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, citing his opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion as two reasons.

Given Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's staunch support of gay rights, the letter came as a surprise to many, and subjected Jane to a firestorm of criticism.

Brad Pitt's Mom

Brad's brother Doug Pitt defended their mom, if not her political views, while Jane said she would no longer be commenting to the media on the letter.

Others were not so diplomatic, to say the least.

Reaction was swift on Twitter, where one user, I Bleed Gaga wrote, "BRAD PITT'S MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE B***H."

Another named Sandy Kownacka wrote, "Brad Pitt's mom, die."

Others stiil wrote: "F**k you, brad pitt's mom, the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko," and, "Brad Pitt's mom is a dumb c***."

Okay, people. Chill. As Doug said, it's alright to disagree, but can't we keep things civil? No need to threaten a senior citizen's life over this.

I'm a gay man that was married in Connecticut. While I disagree with Mrs. Pitt, I think it is ridiculous that some people would make threats against her. Having said that, for all those making commits about gays making attacks, you are basing your own commits on a few people and lumping the entire community into this category. If you were denied rights and liberties as we have, I suspect you would be fighting just as hard as we are.

@Tisha,A woman can pay $20.00 co-pay and receive an abortion under Romneycare.That is why I said Mrs.Pitt should have stated her belief but left Mitt out.

@Jane.Mitt no longer is pro-abortion.Although,he supports gay rights he opposes marriage only.

Jane has failed,including Romney in her letter.He approves abortions in his mandated healthcare law in Mass.He also was for gay rights as governor.

@Jane your correct.Our community would be livid if we were told how to live our life by a minority group.We have become accustom to controlling others lifestyle.

What if you had a gay kid,gay bro,gay sis?Would you still hate them and want them to live in fear of being killed?

I can't support lifestyles like this, for a group that demands rights they sure don't act as a group that is ready to accept the responsibility that comes with rights. I have noticed the aggressive manner on this site and out in the world. Jane, she does not deserve the aggresive bashing that this group has shown her not to mention these are the same people that accuse others of hate crimes. I will not entertain the thought of supporting any gay propaganda in the future and I hope that Massachusetts along with my old home New Hamp. rethinks it's Marriage laws.

Everyone has right 2 freedom of speech. If madam Jane feels that gays and abortion is wrong, thats her view and everyone must respect it. People of today, where are we heading to? Saying all those bad things, threats and insults to an elder is a sin. We must learn to respect elders regardless of what they did or said.
