Brad Pitt Debuts on Twitter Trend Amid The Golden Globes 2023 Appearance!
The 59-year-old actor, Brad Pitt was spotted at this year’s Golden Globes Awards without any worry which would be quite a concern for a person who has been accused of heinous allegations by his ex-wife and Hollywood’s leading actress, Angelina Jolie.
However, his normal vibe is all thanks to his PR team who continued to portray him as a good celebrity which was clearly seen at the show. Many celebrities welcomed the actor with open arms, ignoring the domestic abuse allegations.

the PR machine laid it on too thick for Brad Pitt. Going this hard to boost his image definitely makes it obvious that he did indeed abuse Angeliba Jolie and the kids #GoldenGlobes https://t.co/HHKko3pOvq

His sudden appearance on the show and the continuous limelight he received was one of the reasons behind the hatred he’s been receiving from the fans apart from the allegations he was accused of by his former lover. Many celebrities were seen getting starstruck by the actor and even praising them onstage. The list includes Margot Robbie, Abbott Elementary actor/creator Quinta Brunson, Austin Butler, and Ke Huy Quan. Not just that, he was also photographed with many celebrities which clearly showed that Hollywood is supporting him despite the allegations.
Brad Pitt’s Outstanding PR Amid The Domestic Abuse Allegations
Jolie’s domestic abuse allegations stemmed from the infamous altercation the former pair had on a private flight in 2016. Various details of the incident surfaced when they were engaged in a legal battle over a winery.
According to an FBI report, Jolie claimed that Pitt assaulted her and their children during a heated argument. Her allegations were also reported in the divorce lawsuit.
The incident was investigated by the FBI the same year however the authorities decided not to press charges.
The new reports that came afterward reported that the Bullet Train actor “choked” Jolie, grabbed her head, and “shook her” during their altercation. He allegedly got “verbally abusive” and “physical” with the actress and son, Maddox as he reportedly “choked one of the children and struck another in the face.”
With this year’s event, it is quite visible to fans that Hollywood is not going to comment on the stars’ personal matters given the fact that Pitt has been in the industry for quite a long time. His popularity is second to none which could be one of the reasons behind the royalty he received on the occasion.
Regarding his PR handling, he reportedly hired crisis publicist Matthew Hiltzik during his 2016 divorce from the Maleficent actor who is still working for him. He has represented many public figures including Hillary Clinton, and Johnny Depp. Given his experience in perfectly handling the PR of Depp, he might be the one supporting the actor to help him in PR.
