Bradley Cooper, who played conservative hero Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in 2014 movie American Sniper, has riled up Republicans by making an appearance at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
Cooper attended the convention with his Russian model girlfriend, Irina Shayk.

Some irate 桑拿会所 users plan to boycott Cooper’s future films over his presence at the convention. Another commented that they thought his experience playing Kyle would have rubbed off on him.

The complaints have been mocked by others who say Cooper was simply acting a role when playing Kyle, and conservatives shouldn’t be surprised.

Left-Bradley Cooper. He is an actor, not a sniper. Right-Paul Giamatti. He is an actor, not John Adams. We good? pic.twitter长沙桑拿/4V4INebX4d

I’m done. Stupid Republicans think just because Bradley Cooper PLAYED Chris Kyle, he really THINKS like Chris Kyle. Um…it’s called ACTING.

Cooper earned an Oscar nomination for American Sniper, which became a blockbuster partially because of an enthusiastic reception among conservative moviegoers.
Cooper was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, and before this convention appearance has not been very vocal about his political leanings.
