Zoe Saldana Thinks Hollywood ‘Bullies’ Won Trump The White House


div class=”Text”> Zoe Saldanafound herself in hot water on Saturday after claiming Hollywoods bullying tactics emboldened the electorate into voting forDonald Trump.

We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies, Saldana said in an interview withAFPof Trump who has been repeatedly accused of bullying reporters, political opponents, minority groups, not to mention dodging allegations of sexual assault throughout his campaign.

We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong, she continued, and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.

Saldana has gone on the record as a supporter of Trumps Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, and she has previously been vocal about her distaste for the president-elects proposed policies, especially when it comes to immigration. In February, she co-signed a letterwith actress America Ferrara and other Latinos in Hollywood to stand up against Trumps anti-immigrant fear-mongering. Months before the election, she also endorsed a letter signed by theStar Trek castthat described him as an amateur with a contemptuous ignorance of national laws and international realities.

Im learning from [Trumps victory] with a lot of humility, Saldana said.If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we wont go back to those times.

Her comments come after a week of high-profile actresses addressing Trump publicly. At the74th Annual Golden Globes on Sunday,Meryl Streep delivered an impassioned speech about how we all must help safeguard the truth and challenge Trumps attack on the press, foreigners and the entertainment industry. Days later, Nicole Kidman caused some controversy by declaring that its time all Americans support the future president now that hes been elected.
