After actress Megan Fox called former President Donald Trump “a legend” during her appearance at the big UFC fight last weekend, unsurprisingly, many anti-Trump fans criticized her on Twitter.
Fox’s response? They are “uneducated” and have a “burn a witch at the stake” mentality.
Critics immediately accused the “Jennifer’s Body” star of being a MAGA fan, but she clarified on Instagram Wednesday that she is apolitical and not a fan of cancellation culture.https://t.co/HqWJ83qJhL

“I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber and Trump were also in my line, ”said the 35-year-old.
“He was a legend,” Fox said. “That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in.”
“I’ve never seen anything like it before.” “It was crazy.”

Fox strikes back
So Fox decided to make it perfectly clear in an Instagram post on Thursday.
“Uhmmm … I don’t align myself with any political party or individual politicians,” he wrote in capital letters.
“I never said that Donald Trump is a legend. I said he was a legend … in that arena (key part of the sentence), ”Fox explained.

Fox on Cancellation Culture: ‘I really love this lack of education … Carrying the pitchfork, burning a witch mentality at the stake’
“The arena was packed with fans of UFC fights, many of them clearly Republican due to the insane reaction from the crowd he received upon entering the T-Mobile compound,” Fox said.
“That was an observable fact,” he said. “It is not my opinion.”
Then Fox turned on his critics.
“I really love this bad mannered and mean evil [sic]However, the mentality of burning a witch at the stake, the world needs more of that, ”she wrote, obviously with her tongue firmly on her cheek.
