Amal and George Clooney are being criticized for being hypocrites. George, 55, is a Hollywood actor while his stylish wife is a human rights lawyer.
The pair who has their own charity has spoken out several times about refugee crisis. Both Amal and George Clooney met German Chancellor Angela Merkel to request for letting in refugees to Europe.
Now, however refugees have taken shelter in Lake Como, Italy. The A-list couple have a home in the area, and are regularly spotted there.
But, unfortunately, the same people who asked for free passage of refugees into Europe and North America have turned a blind eye to the problem near their Italian home.
According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, a makeshift refugee camp has been set up near Amal and George Clooney’s Lake Como home, but they have not said or done anything about it. After Swiss government close its border with Italy, the refugees – mostly Arab, African and Asian nations came into Lake Como.
The refugee crisis near their vacation home reportedly does not come in the list of priorities for the Clooney couple. They are busy with hosting charity dinners and raising money for Darfur.
Amal and George Clooney’s lavish fundraiser for Darfur was to help the war-torn African nation. The pair is being criticized because they enjoyed with guests when there is a huge problem simmering on their own backyard.
Looks like the couple is not bothered about anything excepting being in the spotlight. The irony, is that Amal Clooney talked her own family’s refugee past in a video earlier in the year.
So, their actions don’t speak as loud as their words. Meanwhile, the Angeline Jolie, Amal Clooney feud over the actress’s jealousy and teaching stint at the Georgetown University is baseless. Gossip Cop debunked the rumor that Jolie will teach at the university, or the duo is feuding.
