Why Are HBO and Melissa McCarthy Raising Money for an Anti-Abortion Group?


    HBO MaxTo promote Superintelligence, Melissa McCarthy’s latest movie about saving the world from an A.I. designed to sound like James Corden, HBO Max plans to donate $20,000 to a conservative evangelical organization—whose founder has called abortion a “holocaust” and homosexuality “an unspeakable offense to God”—that is dedicated to abolishing the commercial sex industry.The contribution comes as part of a 20-day campaign from HBO Max tied to World Kindness Day and the release of Superintelligence on Thanksgiving called “20 Days of Kindness.” The fundraising event, which launched Tuesday, will highlight a cause each day and encourage viewers to donate, with HBO Max kicking in a daily $20,000 of their own.“We decided to have some fun and do some good as we spread some kindness to this world,” the campaign’s website reads. “That’s why we are giving away a Tesla Model X (Carol’s ride from Superintelligence) and a virtual hang with Melissa McCarthy herself to raise funds for a few incredible organizations.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
