After spotting him during the DNC telecast this week, some fans were upset that Bradley Cooper, who famously portrayed late Navy SEAL veteran Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s 2014 war drama American Sniper, is apparently a Democrat. While some viewers seemed to perceive Cooper’s attendance as a snub to Kyle’s conservative values, others seem dismayed that Cooper would dishonor the memory of the late marksman by not doing everything a group of strangers on Twitter think Kyle would have done for the rest of his life. In a twist that must be even more galling to those moved to comment, Josh Gad, of all people, had the most salient rebuttal.
