On July 18, Antonio Sabato Jr. spoke at the Republican National Convention to vocalize his support for Donald Trump. Among his arguments, the actor believes the businessman would secure borders and protect citizens.
Sadly, because of his endorsement, the model has faced merciless bullying on social media, and has been blacklisted in the entertainment industry.
The 44-year-old said:
“I think this country allows you freedom of speech. Anybody should be allowed to say whatever they want. When you’re in my business, you can’t talk about [conservative] politics. You just can’t. You’re attacked viciously in a way that I’ve never been attacked before. On Twitter, there’s been name calling, and celebrities attacking me.”
In fact, he says certain directors refuse to hire him because of his political beliefs.
“I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. They will never even see me for projects. That’s unfair. It’s just like Communism.”
Antonio even criticizes Hollywood for contradicting its own liberal values.
“Hollywood is very liberal, but they contradict themselves all the time. They don’t want the war, but they’ll have a president who voted for the war. Hollywood wants to help the entire world. They do the opposite├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ government under the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing. I choose Trump. I support everything he’s going to do. A lot of people in America feel the same way.”
