It sucks to be James Woods right now.
On Monday, it was revealed that the Hercules star is being sued for mistakenly identifying a Bernie Sanders supporter as the person who did the Nazi salute at a Donald Trump rally in March of last year. Eek!
ICYMI, during the 2016 presidential race, the Trumpster tried to hold a rally in Chicago where a woman was photographed giving the Nazi salute (the event was eventually canceled due to heavy protester activity). When the pic began circulating on the web, Mr. Woods took to Twitter to accuse Portia Boulger of giving the salute as she was allegedly a Sanders "agitator/operative." This statement was more than false as Portia was in NO way the woman who was photographed at the rally. In fact, it was Illinois native and Trump supporter, Birgitt Peterson who was featured in the image.
While James retracted his tweet and clarified the mix up, he didn't immediately delete the message
