After actress Megan Fox called former President Donald Trump “a legend” during his appearance the big UFC fight last weekend, predictably many anti-Trump zealots criticized her on Twitter.
Fox’s response? They are “uneducated” and have a “burn a witch at the stake mentality.”
Fox’s original comments were made on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” earlier in the week, where guest host Arsenio Hall asked Fox about how Trump was received considering she was also in attendance.
“I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber and Trump was also in my row,” the 35-year-old said.
“He was a legend,” Fox said. “That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in.”
“I’ve never seen anything like that before,” she added. “It was crazy.”
You can guess what happened next, as many on social media lashed out over the idea that the actress could possibly say anything positive about the former Republican president.
Also, some Trump fans circulated the clip, praising Fox for being such a fan.
So Fox decided to make herself perfectly clear in an Instagram post on Thursday.
“Uhmmm … I do not align myself with any political party or individual politicians,” she wrote in an all caps.
“I never said Donald Trump is a legend. I said he was a legend… in that arena (key part of the sentence),” Fox explained.
“The arena was filled with UFC fight fans, many of them clearly Republican based off the insane crowd reaction he received walking into the T-Mobile venue,” Fox said.
“That was an observable fact,” she said. “Not my opinion.”
Then Fox lit into her critics.
“Really loving this uneducated, mid-evil [sic], pitch fork carrying, burn a witch at the stake mentality though, the world needs more of that,” she wrote, obviously with tongue firmly in cheek.
