While promoting his new movie, The Campaign, actor Zach Galifianakis said in a recent interview, that he is not a fan of the Koch brothers.
“I disagree with everything they do. They are creepy and there is no way around that. It’s not freedom what they are doing,” Galifianakis said.
The Koch brothers, known for their large financial contributions to GOP candidates and causes, are allegedly portrayed in the movie as the Motch brothers.
Koch spokesman Philip Ellender responded to Galifianakis’ remarks in a statement obtained by CNN.
“Last we checked, the movie is a comedy,” Ellender said. “Maybe more to the point is that it’s laughable to take political guidance or moral instruction from a guy who makes obscene gestures with a monkey on a bus in Bangkok (referring to a scene from Galifianakis’ earlier movie The Hangover, Part II).”
“We disagree with his uninformed characterization of Koch and our beliefs,” Ellender said. “His comments, which appear to be based on false attacks made by our political opponents, demonstrate a lack of understanding of our longstanding support of individual freedom, freedom of expression, and constitutional rights.”
