Producer Shonda Rhimes fired Katherine Heigl from ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” for reportedly being difficult to work with, but one of the stars of her “Scandal” series has managed to stay in her and the network’s good graces despite calling every single person who voted for Donald Trump “stupid c–ks.”
Joshua Malina, who plays Attorney General David Rosen in Rhimes’ political drama, tweeted on Tuesday that Trump voters were “stupid c—ks.” The next day, he doubled down, repeating his insult, and adding that they were, in addition, “homophobic, antisemitic, misogynistic, transphobic, and unfunny.”
Rhimes did not return Fox News’ request for comment, and ABC told Fox News they had no comment on Malina’s headline-making statements.
Dan Gainor, VP of business and culture at the Media Research Center, said Malina’s outburst and the network’s silence are par for the course.
He told Fox News that Malina’s comments did not surprise him as this is the “way of things in Hollywood, where millionaires tell the rest of us that we’re idiots and then curse at us.
“Our response should be simple: Turn off their shows. Let them go get real jobs.”
Several Twitter uses agreed, saying they won’t be tuning in to ABC anymore specifically because of Malina’s remarks.
