Cheers actor Kirstie Alley has caused a massive Twitter storm after she took to social media, revealing she’s voting for Donald Trump “because he’s not a politician”. The 69-year-old, who rose to fame in the 80s, has been a longtime supporter of the republican candidate, but sparked a wave of backlash with her October 17 tweet. “I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician. I voted for him four years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason,” she wrote.
Kirstie soon jumped back on social media, revealing she had been called “really nasty names” in response to her original tweet. “Don’t think I’ve ever seen so much name-calling in my life,” she wrote. “Definitely not on my site [sic] here anyway I guess I’m not allowed to have a viewpoint without being called a really nasty names by what I’m going to suppose are really nasty people.” She then urged people to “stick to [their] guns”, writing, “Not always easy to be under fire but always easier than going against your own integrity. & JUST REMEMBER: if it takes thousands to try & bring u down, you must be one powerful Mfer Love wins.”
