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.

Brad Pitt has been a vocal advocate for gay rights, so it came as a bit of a surprise to learn that his mom write an editorial in her local Missouri newspaper that supports presidential candidate Mitt Romney's conservative views on homosexuality.

Springfield's News-Leader confirms that the author is Brad's mom.

Jane Pitt's letter was primarily penned to express support for Romney, in response to a previous News-Leader editorial urging readers to shun the Republican's bid to unseat President Barack Obama because of his Mormon beliefs.

In her response, which was published on Tuesday, she wrote:

"I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is Mormon."

"Anyone who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years and did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer."

Obama, she writes, is "a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage. I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility."

Angelina Jolie has spent plenty of time in Washington, D.C., as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, but yesterday, she visited the White House with Brad Pitt.

There, they enjoyed a private meeting with President Barack Obama!

The leader of the free world and Hollywood's most famous couple dissected the New Hampshire primary. Kidding. They discussed a cause dear to Angelina's heart ...

The plight of women caught up in war zones - such as the one depicted in her film The Land of Blood and Honey - and how the U.S. can get involved combating mass violence against civilians in troubled areas was Brangelina's reason for visiting.

Pitt, who has consulted with Obama regarding his plans for the redevelopment of New Orleans' hurricane-ravaged Lower Ninth Ward, talked about that as well.

You have to respect the couple's commitment to these causes. No word on whether Secret Service confiscated Brad Pitt's cane before he met with Obama.
