Saldana doesn’t support Trump. But she also doesn’t support the way he was treated. And she spoke up about that. Ladies and gentlemen, there is an adult in Hollywood after all!
Sci-fi queen Zoe Saldana has spoken out against the famously liberal acting community of Hollywood for ‘bullying’ Donald Trump.
Although the Star Trek actress does not support the president-elect, she believes insults flung at him during the race for the White House turned off much of middle America.
The 38-year-old said that Hollywood grew ‘cocky and arrogant’ and became ‘bullies’ while voicing their distaste for Trump during the election.
She said: ‘We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies.’ Saldana explained that by doing so, celebrities created empathy for the billionaire.
The Guardians of the Galaxy star said: ‘We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong… and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.’
Trump has been frequently berated himself for bullying tactics, including seemingly mocking a reporter with disabilities.
Trump launched a Twitter attack on civil rights legend and Congressman John Lewis, a few days before Martin Luther King Jr Day, on Saturday.
The Georgia Democratic Rep. said he thought Trump was an ‘illegitimate president’ and that Moscow helped steal the election from Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
