Whittaker on Obamas special arts council?

I heard from the internet that Whittaker has been appointed as a member of Obamas specially picked arts council… (I’ll repost the article below in case it dissappears) I find it kind of disturbing that he would attend such an elitist event like le bal, carouse with people like Stanley Ho, and support the French fashion industry which is fighting to hold onto the size zero model even though fashion media of ultra thin anorexic models is potentially a major source of eating disorders in young women today… pity. I hope he decides against supporting the event.

(I found this on ‘eurweb’ )
WHITAKER, WOODARD MAKE OBAMA’S ARTS COMMITTEE: Kerry Washington also named Monday as members of new presidential group.

*Actors Forest Whitaker, Alfre Woodard and Kerry Washington are among the Hollywood notables named Monday as members of President Barack Obama’s Committee on Arts and the Humanities.

The panel focuses on arts and humanities education, cultural diplomacy, economic revitalization through the arts and humanities and special events.

First lady Michelle Obama is its honorary chairwoman and film producer George Stevens Jr. and theater producer Margo Lion had already been named as its co-chairs, according to the Associated Press.

The list of 25 people from the worlds of arts and entertainment also includes cellist Yo Yo Ma, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, philanthropist Teresa Heinz, architect Thom Mayne and actress Sarah Jessica Parker, talent agent Bryan Lourd, actor Edward Norton, director George Wolfe, independent filmmaker Liz Manne, publicist Andy Spahn and ballet dancer Damian Woetzel.
