What are your thoughts on Joaquin Phoenix's acceptance speech at the Oscars? Should actors get political?

Even though I agree with what he said, I don't like it when actors get political. If he wanted to be a politician then he should have been that instead of an actor. The media is (for me) a means of escaping politics and the last thing I want is for it to follow me to my refuge.

I see a lot of debate on whether what he said was actually political. I suppose it's hard to see something as political if it's something you agree with. Even though I don't disagree with a lot of what he said for some reason it was as still very cringy to me and I'm still not exactly sure why.
