Bradley Cooper Faces Major Twitter Backlash for DNC Appearance
“American Sniper” star Bradley Cooper is being criticized for attending the DNC with his girlfriend Irina Shayk.
On Wednesday, when the cameras panned to Cooper sitting in the audience, it upset some conservatives, who weren't aware of the actor's support of the Democratic Party in light of his convincing portrayal of the late Navy SEAL and staunch Republican Chris Kyle.
One Twitter user wrote, "Bradley Cooper is promoting Hillary? Too bad. He's dead to me now.”

Not everyone was bashing Bradley in the Twitterverse. One user argued, "People being upset Bradley cooper who played the American Sniper is not a republican is like me being upset he is not a real space raccoon."

People being mad at #BradleyCooper for having different political beliefs than a role he played is proof we need to invest in education.
According to campaign finance records, Cooper donated $750 to Hillary's unsuccessful 2008 campaign for president. In January of this year, he signed a letter thanking President Obama for issuing an executive order on gun control.
Cooper isn't the only Hollywood name to support the Democrats at the DNC, with Lena Dunham, Eva Longoria, Elizabeth Banks, and America Ferrera taking the stage to praise Hillary earlier this week.
“Orange Is the New Black” stars Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, and Natasha Lyonne also backed Hillary in a new Humanity for Hillary video. Watch!
