John Voight Accuses Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus of ‘Teaching Treason’

Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight spoke to TMZ about the Women’s March that took place earlier this week.


Voight is an avid Trump supporter, and he made that abundantly clear in his comments on the march, saying “It’s been very serious and very destructive, this marching against the government and the president.”


The cameraman exercised his First Amendment rights to point out that this type of marching is protected under free speech, and Voight begrudgingly agreed. However, he also said “Young people are looking at them, and what are they teaching? They’re teaching treason,” referring specifically to public figures Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus in his statement.


He also accuses them and public figures like them of teaching young people to not accept the will of the president and the government. He may be referring to LaBeouf’s video project “He Will Not Divide Us,” a livestream that started on inauguration day referring to now-President Donald Trump and his efforts to discriminate against certain communities such as women and Muslims. Cyrus was an outspoken participant in the Women’s March in Los Angeles, which was attended by more than 750,000 people and was held to stand up for womens’ rights.


Voight gave the opening speech at Trump’s inauguration in what couldn’t possibly be any more of an opposite event. LaBeouf and Cyrus have not yet responded to Voight’s comments.
