Before Cancel Culture: These Hollywood Stars Read to Children to Commemorate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

Dr. Seuss appears to be the latest target caught in the cancel culture crosshairs, with Dr. Seuss Enterprises announcing that it would discontinue the publication of six popular Dr. Seuss books and Joe Biden breaking presidential precedent this week by omitting Dr. Seuss in his presidential proclamation for “Read Across America Day.” But it was just a few years ago that scores of Hollywood celebrities celebrated the famed author’s birthday.
