Tim Allen is a Republican

TV star Tim Allen feels bullied as a Trump fan - is it hammering with him or with Hollywood?

From crowd favorite to victim of bullying?

Tim Allen (63), former star of the TV series "Hör mal, wer da hammert" (shot from 1991 to 1999), was recently a guest on the late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live". And talked about his outsider status in Hollywood.

Because unlike many of his fellow actors, Allen publicly supports the controversial US President Donald Trump (70) - and is pretty much alone in the corridor.

The TV star, who plays an arch-conservative Republican in his new series “Last Man Standing”, had attended Trump's inauguration, which had been boycotted by many US artists.

When asked by moderator Jimmy Kimmel (49), Allen replied almost apologetically: “I was invited. There was a VIP event for war veterans, so I went there and met Democrats and Republicans. "

Kimmel joked that it was okay, that he did not want to attack Allen with the question of his participation.

The actor joked back, laughing and saying, “Well, you have to be very careful here. You can get one in quickly if you don't believe in what everyone else believes in. It's like in Germany in the 1930s. "

And further:"I do not know what happened. There is this group of people in Hollywood who say: only what we believe is right. And it is with this attitude that I have a problem. "

Even if Allen said this with a twinkle in his eye, his conservative attitude does not seem to be entirely unproblematic.

As recently as November last year he said on the TV show “The Kelly File”: “What I find strange in Hollywood is that a lot of people don't like Trump because they think he's a tyrant. But if you support Trump, you will be bullied. I find that hypocritical. "
