The actress did “Cheers” and “Look Who’s Talking” was never shy of their support of the President and Criticism of Democratic candidate Joe Bidenand often posted on social media about her conservative views.
On Saturday, Alley leaned forward. “I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician,” said the actress tweetedbefore the election on November 3rd. “I voted for him 4 years ago for that reason and I will be voting for him again for that reason. He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it guys, there you have it.”
Comments were quick and focused, with many responding, including criticizing the president’s handling of the coronavirus and its economic impact. And it wasn’t long before Alley’s name became trendy.
filmmakers Judd Apatow was among the critics of the actress, tweet“Shelly Long was way funnier than you,” a reference to actress Shelley Long, whose departure from Cheers paved the way for the addition of Alley’s character, Rebecca Howe.
“He’s actually running for an RE election. He’s a politician.” pointed out Actor Diedrich Bader. “Also a strange argument like ‘I want someone who is NOT a pilot to land the plane'”
Not everyone was critical. Twitter user Pam Weatherby repeated the feelings of many of Alley’s loyal followers: “Thank you for being strong enough to say this OPEN! Most of Hollywood are too scared.”
Alley jumped back to express her misfortune. She couldn’t express her opinion without being attacked.
“Don’t think I’ve ever seen so many names in my life,” she said tweeted about 30 minutes after their first post. “Definitely not on my side here, I think I mustn’t take a stand without being called really bad people by what I’m going to assume.”
Hours later, Alley was back to remind her followers, “Hold on to your guns”.
