Hypocrisy Much? Millionaire Actor Mark Ruffalo Slams Capitalism, Calls For 'Economic Revolution'

Actor Mark Ruffalo claimed on Twitter Sunday that it’s “time for an economic revolution,” asserting that “Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
 


A vocal anti-Trump crusader, Bernie Sanders supporter and climate change alarmist, the “Avengers” star is just one of a slew of Hollywood celebs, musicians and career politicians to decry capitalism as an evil system that only benefits the elite few.

Hilariously, he’s also one of the many hypocrites.

While he may slam capitalism for “failing” Americans, Ruffalo has certainly benefitted from the free market himself, and by no small amount. The actor has a net worth of roughly $30 million, which he made by appearing in numerous movies and commercials, as well as directing several productions.

All of which are directly tied to the free market, wherein consumers voluntarily pay to see – or, in the case of some of Ruffalo’s projects, regret seeing – these films.  

And it’s certainly not as though Ruffalo was just giving all his earnings to the poor victims of capitalism. He sold his swanky brownstone in Brooklyn for $3.1 million back in 2017, nearly half a million down from the $3.5 he’d paid for it less than two years prior.

But of course, he’s here to tell you, average American, that the free market he so heftily benefitted from should be off-limits to you, and that those who earn less than you should be given a portion of any wealth you could hope to accumulate through hard work and struggle.

Just, you know, not his.
