Megan Fox Responds To Backlash After Calling Donald Trump ‘A Legend’
Megan Fox took to Instagram on Wednesday to clarify her comments from a Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance where she used the word “legend” to describe the UFC arena’s reaction to Donald Trump. Fox, who was sitting in the same row as the former president, tried to describe the scene when Trump took his seat at the event.
During the talk show appearance, she said, “I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber, and Trump was also in my row. He had, like, thirty Secret Service with him. He was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in. I was like, I don’t know how I feel about it, because if someone is a target, then I’m like, I could be harmed because I’m adjacent to where he is. So I was worried about my own safety, that’s all I was caring about. But yeah, I’ve never seen anything like that before. It was crazy.”
Fox later received backlash for her comments, which she publically addressed on her Instagram story.
“Uhmmm… I do not align myself with any political party or individual politicians,” she posted. “I never said Donald Trump is a legend. I said he was a legend… in that arena (key part of the sentence). 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 added, “That was an observable fact. Not my opinion. Really loving this uneducated, medieval, pitchfork carrying, burn a witch at the stake mentality though. The world needs more of that.”
