Conservative actor Tim Allen has stepped forward to criticize the elite liberal Hollywood for how it treats individuals who support President-elect Donald Trump.
According to the comedian, these liberal celebrities have emerged as big bullies following the U.S. election.
Earlier this week, Allen appeared on Megan Kelly’s program “The Kelly File” to promote his sitcom “Last Man Standing,” a show about a conservative father and his family.
During his interview on the “Fox News” segment, Allen turned his attention to his Hollywood colleagues. He noted that during the campaign period, many of these actors and actresses were openly against Trump because he was portrayed as a bully by liberal media.
However, after he was elected as the next president of the country, these celebrities became vicious in their criticisms of Trump and his supporters.
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” Allen told Kelly. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
Allen made the statement following the inappropriate impressions of Trump and his wife Melania made by the hosts of the recent American Music Awards. Following the show, hosts Gigi Hadid and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Jay Pharaoh were slammed on social media for their disrespectful, inappropriate and borderline racist jokes about the president-elect and the incoming First Lady.
The members of the band Green Day, which performed during the awards show, also used their time on stage to bash Trump and link him to fascism and the K.K.K. Singer Indina Menzel also took a shot at Trump during the AMAs while expressing her support for “Hamilton.”
As noted by Allen, the way these celebrities used their status and influence on the public to bash Trump and those who support him is very inappropriate. He also thinks the jokes delivered at the AMAs were done in very poor taste.
