These Celebrities Hate Cops, But Are Happy to Collect a Paycheck While Playing One

Long before the invention of Twitter, celebrities have been using their bully pulpits to influence the political and social opinions of the masses with their own.  Despite the constant soapboxing, one thing that I’ve noticed is that actors and rappers are a lot like politicians in the sense that they’ll sell out to the other side if the money is right faster than a kid at fat camp with a Snickers bar dangling in front of his face. Apparently, the road to green goes through blue and yellow with this bunch.  Without further ado, here are the top cop hating celebrities happy to play the Benedict Arnold of their misguided side for money and fame.

#12: Chris Tucker

Tucker showed up on the map in 1995 when he played the eternally stoned, “Smokey”, in the cult hood-classic Friday – yet, he set himself up for life playing opposite Jackie Chan in 1998’s Buddy Cop meets Kung Fu Classic – Rush Hour.  Despite making 45 million to play LAPD Detective James Carter in the second and third installments of the franchise, Tucker was proud to strike a “hands up, don’t shoot” pose with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, rappers Ludacris and Yung Jeezy, and a few other rich socialites at a swanky 2015 gala.
