What Does Tim Allen Say About Being A Conservative In Hollywood?

Comedian Tim Allen said being a Republican in Hollywood can be hard because the majority of people in show business tend to be staunchly liberal.

"You've gotta be real careful around here, you know, you get beat up if you don't believe what everybody believes".

On the Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, Allen jumped on the defensive when asked about his reported attendance at President Donald Trump's inauguration party.

Allen attended the inauguration as part of a group to honor veterans and went to the Veterans Ball.

It's hard to be a conservative in Hollywood these days.

"In 30 years of show business, I've never seen it like this", an unnamed actor told the outlet.

Allen's character on his comedy hit "Last Man Standing" is known for shunning political correctness and railing against the absurdities of politics.

Thanks to starring in the hit sitcom Home Improvement, Tim Allen became a household name in the '90s and was one of the most sought-after comedic talents.

President Trump released a proposed budget that would cut funding for PBS, Meals on Wheels, and The National Endowment for the Arts.

Whatever Allen said, and however much he meant it, good for him for speaking his mind.

Needless to say, the story was blown out of proportion, which is really what happens all the time today.

"But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that".

"You get bullied into a position, but I don't want to defend the guy", Allen explained. "And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me", said Allen. After the election, on Fox News, Allen compared Trump to an amateur performer with "very bad comic timing".
