Kirstie Alley slams left-leaning 'Hollywood a**hats' for blacklisting Trump supporters: "We are the same species"
The actress says not working with Republicans is as "stupid and nasty" as refusing to do business with gay people
Actress Kirstie Alley took to Twitter on September 7 to slam left-leaning Hollywood stars who have urged the masses to denounce President Donald Trump and his supporters.
“I refuse to be part of the Hollywood a**hats who can’t see that ‘NOT working with Republicans’ is as stupid and NASTY as ‘REFUSING to do business with gay people,’" she wrote on Twitter. “STOP ACTING above the FRAY ya damn hypocrites… WE are the same species! let’s help each OTHER ya damn yahoos.”
She called for celebrities to unite as the progressives continue to blacklist the Republican and refuse to work with conservative lawmakers. "Tolerance isn’t standing up for what’s popular... Tolerance is understanding and implementing human rights to all humans even though you don’t necessarily agree with their views. Human rights is a good place to start when seeking tolerance for one’s self & others," she wrote in another tweet.
She also cleared up misconceptions that her political-leanings were strictly right.
"People recently think I’m some kind of devout Republican, which I’m not... neither am I a devout Democrat. The only thing you could accurately accuse me of would be being a devout human rights advocate... that’s the extent of it," she wrote, adding, "I love people damn it! I don’t give a hoot who u vote for or what religion u r or who u choose to penetrate. I love you damn it! Unless ur goal is to cause more harm than good, I love you... even then I’d reserve a smidge of love for you losers."
Kirstie is one of the few actresses who stood out as a Republican elector despite most of her peers in Hollywood leaning to the left. Although she voted for Barack Obama in the past, in 2016 she declared that the-then Presidential candidate Trump was “waking the country up” and that she would officially continue to endorse him.
Kirstie's criticism came after Emmy winner Debra Messing tweeted out an Alabama church sign that called African-American Trump voters mentally ill. After facing backlash on Twitter and "#RacistDebraMessing" began trending on social media, Messing later apologized for promoting the sign.
Messing and her “Will & Grace" co-star Eric McCormack also demanded last week that the identities of those attending the fundraiser for Trump next month be made public.
