What kind of son lets his mother take death threats and all kinds of verbal abuse just for expressing her opinions? Apparently, sons like Brad Pitt!
Where are you, Brad? Why did you let your brother Doug take up the defense (which was actually more about Doug's recent commercial that went viral) of your mother instead of you? But Jane Pitt is not known as Doug Pitt's mother, she's known as Brad Pitt's mother, so it's up to you to come to her defense! Show that you're more than just a pretty face!
This could be a teachable moment that demonstrates that freedom of speech is not dead, and that family still matters. In any case, this sort of ugliness shouldn't be tolerated on either side of the aisle, so man up Brad, and get out there!
