Arnold Schwarzenegger Lends Support to Anti-Poaching Campaign


Movie star and former California senator Arnold Schwarzenegger has thrown his weight behind a campaign against ivory poaching by blowing up an elephant tusk on camera. The Wildlife Conservation Society’s ‘96 elephants campaign’ aims to draw attention to the daily death toll of the majestic animals. In the video, Schwarzenegger says, “Hey, stop killing 96 elephants every day just because of this ivory. Lets get rid of the demand once and for all.” He then presses a detonator, exploding a tusk. John Calvelli, the campaign's director said, “We are extremely grateful Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the 96 Elephants campaign, and we are hopeful that his global following of fans will become allies to stop the killing, stop the trafficking and stop the demand of ivory.”

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger Sends Support To Eliza Dushku

    Arnold Schwarzenegger has weighed in on allegations from his "True Lies" costar Eliza Dushku, who has accused the film's stunt coordinator of molesting her when she was 12 years old. Dushku played the daughter of Schwarzenegger and costar Jamie Lee Curtis in the 1994 film. In a lengthy post on her official Facebook page over the weekend, Dushku wrote that the stunt coordinator for the film, Joel Kramer, molested her. "Ever since, I have struggled with how and when to disclose this, if ever," she wrote on Saturday. "At the time, I shared what happened to me with my parents, two adult friends and one of my older brothers. No one seemed ready to confront this taboo subject then, nor was I." Kramer denied the allegations in an email to CNN, calling them a "a well-crafted fabrication." "I do not understand what motivated Ms. Dushku to make this statement and I hope that she can find it in her conscious to correct this injustice and return my good name to me," he wrote. "I understand the culture in Hollywood has been historically unfair to women and I applaud and support women who are standing up and pointing out these injustices. It is unfortunate, however that this new culture allows a person to destroy the life and livelihood of a person with false accusations." On Monday, Schwarzenegger responded to a tweet from "True Lies" costar Tom Arnold, who wrote "I promise you @JimCameron @Schwarzenegger @jamieleecurtis would've done something too. We all love & are proud of @elizadushku #metoo." "The Terminator" star weighed in with his support. "Tom, you bet your ass all of us would have done something," he tweeted on Monday. "I'm shocked and saddened for Eliza but I am also proud of her - beyond being a great talent and an amazing woman, she is so courageous."
