Star of Avatar and Guardians of The Galaxy, Zoe Saldana seems to be quite outspoken yet again but this time blaming Hollywood for making America feel sorry for Donald Trump. The veteran actress believes that Hollywood bullied Trump. “We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” says Saldana.
Zoe also said:
“We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong… and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.”
The mother of two-year-old twin boys is hopeful the country as a whole will never return to the toxic days of segregation.
“I’m learning from (Trump’s victory) with a lot of humility. If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times.”
Zoe’s remarks come after her frequent comments against prejudice in Hollywood that she boldly makes known.
Could her comments be coming into play as Saldana was dragged for her role in the Nina Simone biopic film? Her interpretation of the iconic star was not spot-on, therefore sending social media into a frenzy with a plethora of not so good replies.
Trump is clearly not the victim here which has us completely confused by Zoe’s mentions taking DT’s side on bullying.
Twitter, however, was not amused…
