Seth MacFarlane Breaks Down Why Most Of Hollywood Hates Trump
It’s safe to say that most of Hollywood campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
While it may be baffling for some to see Tinseltown’s elite work so vehemently to fight Trump, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter Friday to explain just why his peers “hate” the president-elect so much.
“We live and work amongst his kind every day here. His tactics are those employed by the shiftiest of agents, lawyers, and publicists,” the actor said in a long note. “We’ve learned to recognize the blustery showmanship of a lying con man because we encounter it every day in our business.”
But as MacFarlane went on to explain, it’s important not to confuse Hollywood’s dislike for Trump with a lack of patriotism.
“Most of us love America a hell of a lot, and we don’t want America to be conned the way many of us have ourselves,” he wrote. “Trump is not of the People. Trump is of Hollywood. And that is the problem.”
Some of MacFarlane’s followers took issue with his reasoning, but the comedian fought back and engaged with his critics.
When a disgruntled tweeter said that the actor and other “Hollywood scumbags live in a fucking bubble,” MacFarlane pointed out that it was actually Trump who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth :
Pretty big generalization there. My parents were teachers. I made my own money at every step. Trump’s daddy handed him his. Big difference.
And when people came at MacFarlane with the old “you’re a celebrity, don’t talk about politics argument,” he fired back:
Hollywood celeb makes a political comment: “Stfu!” Koch brothers pour billions into a campaign: Silence. Both private industries. Comment?
When others said that the comedian was probably just worried about higher taxes, MacFarlane politely pointed out that it was just the opposite:
Alas, no. Guys like me are going to rake in the dough under Trump. Tax breaks for the rich came with the candidate. That’s the problem.
It’s probably only a matter of time before the president-elect himself starts tweeting at MacFarlane.
