Tim Allen, one of a small amount of right-leaning actors in Hollywood, spoke out against his peers for bullying supporters of Donald Trump, calling them hypocrites.
Allen, star of ABC’s show Last Man Standing, spoke with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly regarding the recent Gigi Hadid flap of her impersonating of Melania Trump.
Hadid mocked Melania and her accent, something that would have ruined the career of a conservative had they tried mocking the accent of an immigrant.
Allen said Hadid’s attempt at comedy was just that, but that the American Music Awards might not have been the best venue to try something of that nature.
Then he went after Hollywood liberals.
“What I find odd in Hollywood is they didn’t like Trump because he’s a bully,” Allen explained. “But if you said or had any inkling that you’re for Trump you got bullied for doing that.”
“It gets a little hypocritical to me, you can now bully people – you’re always on the defense with this,” he added.

Tim Allen stopped by Fox News’ The Kelly File on Monday to discuss how Hollywood is reacting to the election of Donald Trump as president.
Allen, star of ABC’s Last Man Standing, spoke with Megyn Kelly about what he sees is “hypocritical” thinking in the Hollywood elite.
Allen said that his character is conservative, but the show is “written by liberals,” to which Kelly replied, “That goes without saying — that’s redundant.”
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” said Allen. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.
Kelly added that she personally knows people in Hollywood that are conservatives, but won’t admit it for fear of retaliation.
If anyone in Hollywood “finds out you support Trump at all, it’s like you smell bad,” Kelly quipped.
