Hollywood stars frequently tell others what they think about things, irrespective of them being asked.
Their fans may like comments about movies and acting, but they’re often out of their depth when they hand out instructions on topics including the economy or international relations.

It’s now the U.S. Oil & Gas Association that is putting actor Mark Ruffalo, who famously played the Hulk in one of the iterations of that cartoon superhero, in his place.

It also aimed at Ruffalo’s career, pointing out that “CGI and digital artists” essentially have made his fame.
Ruffalo, who boasts online he’s a “climate justice advocate,” has drawn criticism before. In 2016 he was branded a hypocrite for jetting to London to accept an award.
