Kirstie Alley Says She Was Blackballed By Hollywood For Supporting Trump
Hollywood star Kirstie Alley came clean on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Today” with what really happened to the actress (who voted for Obama twice) when she came out in support of former President Donald Trump.
Alley, known for her roles in Cheers and the Look Who’s Talking films, said she was blackballed from Hollywood for her outspoken support of Trump. She said, “I was on a set and I spoke up. I didn’t know it was going to be some huge deal. ‘I said you know, I think I am going to vote for Trump.’ Some of the producers took me aside and go, ‘I’m going to, too. But if anyone hears me say that, I will never work again.”
“People go, ‘You’re so brave.’ I go, ‘No, I think I’m stupid.’ Because honestly, it is a real blackballing situation,” Alley told Tucker.
“You can be cooking meth and sleeping with hookers, but as long as, apparently, you didn’t vote for Trump… I feel like I’m in The Twilight Zone a bit, with the whole concept of it,” she said before reminding the goons on the left she voted for Obama twice.
“On Twitter, I had many celebrities followed me, and now I think three follow me,” she said.
“I’m the same person. I’m the girl who voted for Obama, twice.”
“And I’m like, ‘Oh, so you liked me when I voted for Obama, and now you’re this?’”
“And it’s made me have to rethink, weirdly, my whole friendships, all my friendships.”
Trump rushed to her defense saying:
“Stick with Kirstie Alley! She is a great actress, loved by so many people, and a true original. She is also strong and smart.
“Many millions of people greatly appreciate her support of our Country. Thank you Kirstie, you are truly appreciated!”
Alley responded to Trump on Twitter:
“Just got a very kind acknowledgment. Thank you Sir, I wish you were still on Twitter as you should be.”
