‘Bridgerton’ Star Plays Victim, Says Pro-Palestian Views Could Cost Her Work

Nicola Coughlan set to take lead on Netflix series, ignores real Hollywood Blacklist

Kevin Sorbo no longer works in mainstream Hollywood because he’s a Christian conservative.

Antonio Sabato, Jr. has a similar story. 

Other right-leaning stars keep their mouths shut for fear of professional blowback. The Hollywood Blacklist 2.0 is real and it’s oh, so ugly.

And the examples go on and on and on

Tell that to Nicola Coughlan.

Bridgerton Season 3 | Official Trailer | Netflix

The “Bridgerton” actress, set to take the show’s lead in its third season, says she fears losing work for supporting the Palestinian cause … as she stars in one of streaming’s biggest hits.

The woke starlet told Teen Vogue that she’s been warned against sharing her pro-Palestinian views lest her career suffer the consequences.

And she won’t back down. Stunning and brave, no?

“…you do get told [in Hollywood], ‘You won’t get work,’ ‘You won’t do this.’ But I also think, deep down, if you know that you’re coming from a place of ‘I don’t want any innocent people to suffer,’ then I’m not worried about people’s reactions.”

Any word on the hostages?

Yes, “Scream” star Melissa Barrera lost her place in the franchise for her extreme pro-Palestinian views that the studio said veered into anti-Semitism. She’s now starring in “Abigail” and has other projects lined up for her.

Other stars have taken up the Palestinian cause without a hint of repercussion. They’re rallied behind a ceasefire movement, once again with no apparent blowback.

Had Coughlan taken a strong pro-Life stand in her Teen Vogue interview it could be a different story. Imagine if she said she was thinking of pulling the lever for Donald Trump this Fall.


As is, the star will face no consequences for her positions. Nor should she. 

Now, can she use her influence, clout and platform to decry the new Hollywood Blacklist? Her fellow actors are suffering, too. They can’t find work because they share views that clash with industry groupthink.

Don’t they deserve a free speech warrior like Coughlan on their side?

That would be truly stunning and brave.

“Bridgerton” returns with new episodes May 16.


  1. As someone trying to make it in show business, I think much of why I, a singer and aspiring movie writer, cannot “get arrested” is my lack of wokeism. Even for a conservative, I don’t mess around(my views on certain issues would make even the likes of Ted Nugent and Kevin Sorbo look like poster boys for the Left).

  2. The self-loathing liberal white person is the most fascinating cultural phenomena, certainly not just in my lifetime, but perhaps in the history of humanity. I can’t recall in my studies of history a single time where the most populous race of people hated themselves to the point they literally drove themselves to extinction. If you look at the plummeting birth rates, you’ll see this is not hyperbole.
    We’ve owned slaves! We’re destroying the planet! We don’t deserve to live!
    Two thumbs way, way up from Russia, China and the Arab Middle East!

  3. She has nothing to worry about. Hollywood will back her all the way. Leftists are allowed to support terrorists if they are the leftist approved ones.
    BTW, does anyone want to watch this? Hollywood certainly embracing the “healthy” at any size movement.
