Actor James Woods sounded off Sunday against Al Starpton, President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in the wake of the murder of two NYPD officers over the weekend, taking to Twitter to ask if “race pimp Sharpton” is “eating caviar” following their tragic deaths.
Woods also reportedly posted and later removed another fiery tweet that read, “This disgusting pig is DIRECTLY responsible for the murder of two good policemen. No discussion,” which was sent along with an image of Sharpton at a protest rally, according to the Daily Caller. That was hardly the end of the 67-year-old actor’s commentary, with Woods also lashing out at Obama and de Blasio. Some of his tweets included hashtags like #BlueLivesMatter, #TurnYourBack, #PigSharpton and #DeBlasioResign.


New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is facing a firestorm of criticism in the wake of the execution-style murder of two city police officers, as police union officials and ex-city leaders accuse him of stoking an atmosphere that made officers a target of "hate."  From his opposition to stop-and-frisk policies during his mayoral campaign to more recent comments about how he wanted his biracial son to be careful around police, the mayor's record on law enforcement is now front and center in an increasingly nasty war of words.
"There's blood on many hands," Patrolmen's Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said late Saturday. "... That blood on the hands starts on the steps of City Hall in the office of the mayor." Lynch and other officer organizations roundly condemned those who "incited" protests over the Garner and Brown deaths, and pointed the finger at the mayor's office. That night, a widely circulated video showed officers turning their backs on the mayor as he walked down a hall where the officers had been pronounced dead.


"I don't put the blood of these police officers on the mayor's doorstep," former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told Fox News on Monday. "I lost police officers, Bloomberg lost police officers. What I do hold him responsible for is letting those demonstrations get out of control. ... He's guilty of creating an atmosphere of police hatred in certain communities."   He accused de Blasio, President Obama and others of fueling an "atmosphere of hate" toward officers.


Hollywood ​came to the Rev. Al Thursday as embattled Sony exec Amy Pascal ​met ​privately with the ​black leader for 90 minutes ​in a bid to fix the fallout from the ​cyberhacking ​leak of embarrassing, racially charged emails. Pascal agreed to let Sharpton have a say in how Sony makes motion pictures, in an effort to combat what he called “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.” “We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton. He said Sony would work closely with his National Action Network, ​the ​National Urban League, ​the ​NAACP and the Black Women’s Round Table to “see if we can come up with an immediate plan to deal with it.”
