Kirstie Alley slaps Hollywood ‘a**hats’ who snub Trump supporters

Kirstie Alley has joined a growing group of voices expressing concern over some in Hollywood who want to shun Trump supporters in Tinseltown.

She joins “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg who rebuffed actors Eric McCormack and Debra Messing for calls for conservative actors to be blacklisted.

In tweets posted Friday, outspoken conservative actress Kirstie Alley blasted the two “yahoos” for being glaring hypocrites and also provided them with the real definition of “tolerance.”

Look:

“I refuse to be part of the Hollywood a**hats who can’t see that ‘NOT working with Republicans’ is as stupid and NASTY as ‘REFUSING to do business with gay people’..STOP ACTING above the FRAY ya damn hypocrites…WE are the same species! let’s help each OTHER ya damn yahoos ❤️❤️❤️,” she wrote in the first of three tweets aimed at McCormack and Messing.

In the second tweet, she urged her followers — and presumably McCormack and Messing as well — to watch comedian Dave Chappelle’s latest Netflix special. The comedy special has attracted widespread praise from libertarians and conservatives because of the comedian’s full-frontal attack on political correctness and outrage/cancel culture.

And in her final tweet, she noted that true tolerance requires being being tolerant of even those with whom you disagree vehemently politically and ideologically.

The tweets were posted roughly a week after the blacklisting controversy erupted.

Following a report last week about about a then-upcoming Beverly Hills fundraiser for President Donald Trump, McCormack posted a tweet requesting that the attendees of the event be outed “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

Less than 24 hours later, Messing posted a tweet expressing the same sentiment:

Both McCormack and Messing have since doubled down, while at the same time trying to argue that their requests weren’t tantamount to pushing for a blacklist campaign.

“I want to be clear about my social media post from last week, which has been misinterpreted in a very upsetting way,” McCormack said in a statement.  “I absolutely do not support blacklists or discrimination of any kind, as anyone who knows me would attest.”

“I’d simply like to understand where Trump’s major donations are coming from, which is a matter of public record. I am holding myself responsible for making educated and informed decisions that I can morally and ethically stand by and to do that, transparency is essential.”

Messing issued a similar statement.

“I NEVER NOR WOULD I EVER call for a blacklist of anyone for any reason,” she tweeted Wednesday in a longer tweet thread initially about her racist comments (long story).

“The info is publicly available. I as a consumer want to know where MY Money is going when I pay for entertainment. Just as you have the right to not watch W&G bc I don’t support Trump, I have the right to not go see (pay for) a movie with someone supporting babies in cages. It is First Amendment. Information, Knowledge. That is how we make decisions.”

Look:

But it appears that practically everybody, including even fellow left-wing Hollywood figure Whoopi Goldberg, thinks their arguments are bull.

“Your idea of who you don’t want to work with is your personal business,” she said Tuesday. “Do not encourage people to print out lists because the next list that comes out your name will be on and then people will be coming after you. In this country, people can vote for who they want to, that is one of the great rights of this country. You don’t have to like it.”

“But you — we don’t go after people because we don’t like who they voted for. We don’t go after them that way. We can talk about issues and stuff, but we don’t print out lists. Last time people did this, people started killing themselves. This is not a good idea.”
