‘Bring migrants to Hollywood’: Salvini mocks Richard Gere for wading into Mediterranean crisis


In a stinging rebuke, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has mockingly suggested that Richard Gere should house migrants in his Hollywood villas after the actor involved himself in the Mediterranean migrant crisis.

The Pretty Woman star felt the wrath of the Italian interior minister after visiting the ‘Open Arms’ ship, which has been stranded in the Mediterranean since it collected over 120 migrants from rafts eight days ago. 

The 69-year-old urged the Italian government to “stop demonizing people” and compared the situation to the policy approach taken by US President Donald Trump regarding migrants traveling to the US from Central America.

When the matter was brought to Salvini’s attention by a reporter, he offered an incredulous reply. “I am lost! I hope he gets a tan, that he feels good, but I don’t think he misses anything, so, have a good trip,” he said.

Seemingly intrigued by Gere’s unexpected involvement, the Lega Nord leader subsequently issued a statement offering a tongue-in-cheek solution to the ‘Open Arms’ standoff.

“Given this generous millionaire is voicing concern for the fate of the ‘Open Arms’ migrants, we thank him. He can take them back to Hollywood, on his private plane, all the people aboard and support them in his villas. Thank you, Richard!”Salvini said.

Gere has yet to confirm whether he will take up the suggestion.

    To flood Europe with more uneducated disease ridden subhumans is what they want and no one is asking where did they get the $10k+ zodiac style boat and motor they are using to get there. Most people won’t accept that they are trying to escape from themselves. You have the continent with the most natural resources and they have done nothing to bring themselves up just like the illegals flooding America they all want to come to where the European people’s created the high standard’s of living…. if you know what I mean

    The ONLY thing that will bring these Hollywood Celeb hypocrites to their senses is forcing them to house illegals (in mansions they live in or just own) because that is the only way they will ever have to deal with the real world. That includes you too, Jonny Rotten and Bono!
