July 14th, 2017 – James Woods added his voice to the pride conversation by tweeting a photo of a family who attended the Orange County pride festival last month. The photo was accompanied by some controversial comments from the 70-year-old actor.
The family brought signs in support of their son reading “I <3 My Creative Gender Son” and “My Son Wears Dresses & Makeup…Get Over It.” Woods, a straight actor known for his villainous roles and his conservative politics, could not get over it.
He tweeted a dark prediction for what the couple’s son would do to them in the future saying:
“This is sweet. Wait until this poor kid grows up, realizes what you’ve done, and stuffs both of you dismembered into a freezer in the garage.”

“The fact that it was so detailed, it’s really gross to me any time that adults talk about children that way. And the visual image that he evoked was troubling.”
She added that Woods’ tweet was “hugely misinformed:”
“LGBTQ youth don’t hurt their parents, they hurt themselves…He told me the other night before bed that that was his best day ever. That’s what we’re focusing on. Sometimes people can’t tell if he’s a boy or a girl, and they whisper and point. He went to Pride and he wasn’t dealing with whispering or pointing.”
