Clint Eastwood backlash calls for empty seats

"Dirty Harry" receives backlash.
When Clint Eastwood made the Republican's day, talking to an empty chair at the their Republican National Convention, he perhaps didn't think of a backlash from potential moviegoers.

Eastwood, 82, portended to be giving President Barack Obama a scolding in his monologue at the RNC, but perhaps he made himself look foolish AND ruined his chances of "Trouble With The Curve" being a success.

Here's the message circulating via email: 
"Clint Eastwood has a movie coming out, 'Trouble With The Curve'.  Yes, the same Clint Eastwood who tried to marginalize our President at the RNC a few weeks ago.  Now it's time to return the favor to Mr. Eastwood.

"Make sure that you are not one of the people sitting in the audience watching this movie.  He used the empty chair to make his point, now we are going to use the empty seats at the theaters where this movie is being shown to make our point.  I have always liked Eastwood's movies until he pulled this stupid stunt.

"Make sure that you send this to everyone you know.  The message has to be sent.  The message:  There will always be consequences as the result of your actions."
