American comedian and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ host Drew Carey has become the hot topic of discussion on Twitter for reasons that didn’t serve his reputation too well. It started with a picture of a man from the Trump rally at Arizona, whose strange resemblance to Carey went viral.

The Internet went ballistic on seeing a man wearing the MAGA cap and clad in brick suit trend on Twitter as the majority of them confused him with Carey. When endless tweets and comments started pouring in, asking in shock if Carey was the republican spotted at the rally, the host himself took to Twitter to provide a clarification. In response to Alan Dershowitz's tweet about a few false accusations against him, Carey wrote, "You think you got troubles? I was trending on Twitter for a short time today because people thought I was at a Trump rally in AZ wearing a MAGA hat and a brick wall suit!"

However, before Carey could establish that the republican from the rally wasn’t him, some fans who were disappointed in him for supporting Trump started saying that they want to cancel him. While one wrote, "I had no idea Drew Carey was a poorly dressed tRump supporter. No more 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' reruns for me," another added, "I didn't know drew carey was a trump supporter. Should we cancel him?"

Meanwhile, a few of them who just couldn’t believe that Carey was the one at the rally, took to Twitter to confirm before drawing conclusions. "First thought, 'Why is Drew Carey dressed as a wall and wearing a MAGA hat'. Really hoping it's not him, especially since we all have about 17,000 other people in the world who could be mistaken for us at a glance," tweeted one. 

On realizing that the man from the rally wasn’t Carey, his fans were relieved and noted that he's a "kind soul" and canceling him would have been "just wrong". While one wrote, "My heart just dropped seeing #DrewCarey trending on YouTube. Good to know it’s not for a tragic reason. Hahaha. I love Drew Carey! #clevelandrocks." Another added, "Most of the people relieved to see the magasuit guy isn't Drew Carey would probably call him a bootlicking if he tried to explain libertarianism to them."
