This of course is a no brainer for celebrities, who can afford to protect their mansions with private security details.
For instance, imagine the footing the bill to protect Natalie Portman’s New Monticeto Mansion.
The modern vacation home, designed by Santa Barbara architect Barton Meyers, set Portman back $6.5 million. The 3,991 square foot property has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and sits on 10.4 acres . The steel, glass, and concrete structure is prime for that SoCal style of indoor/outdoor living, with a retractable roof over the dining room that opens onto a variety of patio and garden space.
Speaking of outdoors, the property also has a a swimming pool, a rock garden, and a spacious entertaining area with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. From the house, the land slopes down toward the Pacific Ocean, of which there are incredible views from practically every room in the house (the floor to ceiling windows definitely help).
And how much does it cost to defend Brie Larson’s Stunning Mid-Century Laurel Canyon Home?
This incredible property is just minutes away from Beverly Hills in the iconic Laurel Canyon neighborhood. The mid-century stunner has an open-plan concept and gorgeous double-height ceilings that let light flood through. With lush landscaping, the home is surrounding by a charming brook.
Certainly having access to private security to protect these mansions represents a disproportionate disparity to the disaffected disenfranchised who don’t have access to such benefits. A terrible inequity.
Therefore, I have opened up a petition to #DefundCelebritySecurity, and I hope you’ll join me in signing it.
Then, after celebrity security has been prohibited, all peaceful Antifa and Black Lives Matters activists will be invited to these mansions for refreshments.
