Director of the 2000 cheerleader movie Bring It On ripped into Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore for invoking the name of his film in his feud with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Moore has been accused by a number of women of sexual misconduct and assault, including by a woman who was 14 at the time of the alleged incident, and another who was 15. He has denied all allegations against him, but as they continue to come in Republicans are beginning to pull their support and urge him to drop out of the race.
That includes McConnell.
“Dear Mitch McConnell, Bring. It. On.,” Moore wrote in a tweet.
Dear Mitch McConnell,
Bring. It. On.

“You’re not allowed to use the name of my cheerleader movie, you fucking pedophile,” director Peyton Reed shot back.

Chis Hansen, the director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is no longer supporting Moore’s candidacy, also took a shot at him.

Moore is facing off against Democrat Doug Jones. Alabamans head to the polls on December 12, and polls show Jones is beginning to open up a lead against the scandal ridden former lawyer and judge.
