Brad Pitt’s Mom Gets Death Threats;
Jane Pitt, the mother of famed Hollywood actor Brad Pitt, has been forced into silence over a politically motivated letter she recently wrote to her local newspaper.
Mrs. Pitt, a devout Christian, is now reluctant to publicly discuss her controversial letter as well as the torrent of abuse that has followed, according to wnd.com.
In her letter to the editor of Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader, Mrs. Pitt urged the public to vote for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney who she described as being a “family man” with “high morals” as opposed to voting for President Barack Obama.
Mrs. Pitt went on to call the President “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage,” and requested “prayerful consideration” from fellow Christians as they select who they vote for in November.
A number of critics flocked to social networking site Twitter after Mrs. Pitt’s letter was publicized. They threatened and condemned Mrs. Pitt for vocalizing her opinion and she is now said to be trembling with fear and in despair.
“BRAD PITT’S MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE bi—,‘ a user posting under the name I Bleed Gaga tweeted.
“f— you, brad pitt’s mom. the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko,” karengeier tweeted.
“Brad Pitt’s mom, die,” Sandy Kownacka tweeted.
Brad, 48, who is renowned for openly supporting the LGBT community and President Obama, has not publicly addressed his mother’s letter. The actor’s brother Doug Pitt however, recently spoke out about his mother’s political views on the “Today Show” during an interview with Matt Lauer.
“Moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world, so why would our family be any different?” Pitt said.
“There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you, and I think there should be. The bad thing is when it turns into venom and negativity, and we don’t have that in our family. It’s open discussion; we can learn from each other … maybe you learn something,” he added.

Jon Voight, the father of Angelina Jolie, has come out and defended Brad Pitt’s mom. Brad Pitt’s mom lives in Springfield, Missouri, and somebody sent a letter to the editor or the newspaper to the Springfield, Missouri, paper criticizing Romney as an illegitimate Christian because he was a Mormon. So Jane Pitt, Brad Pitt’s mom, writes a letter excoriating Obama, and all hell has descended on this woman.
Democrats on Twitter are demanding that she die or be killed. They are calling her names like the B-word and the C-word and so forth. All she did was send a letter to the editor of the local newspaper in Springfield, Missouri. She’s come out against gay marriage. She has come out against Obama and Obamacare, pretty much everything Obama stands for. And some of these tweets, for example: “The gay community made it possible for your son to be a star. Die, you b-i-itch,” was a sample tweet. So (Actor and father of Angelina Jolie) Jon Voight has come out and said, “Good for her.” He added he agrees with the points of view that she expressed.
Now, Brad Pitt, an avid supporter of Obama, didn’t respond for further comment. Jane Pitt declined further comment. Brad Pitt’s brother, Doug Pitt, defended his mother earlier this week. They had him on the Today show. He said, “I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different? There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don’t have any of that in our family. It’s open discussion. We can learn from each other, and, if anything, it solidifies your point.” That was Brad Pitt’s brother, Doug, defending Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt, as did Jon Voight. We haven’t heard from Angelina Jolie on this. Haven’t heard from Brad Pitt. No, I take it back. We have heard from Brad Pitt, not so much of his mother, but that he loves Obama. Anyway, it’s made somewhat big news.
