Actress Megan Fox slammed the “uneducated, medieval, pitchfork carrying, burn-a-witch-at-the-stake” cancel culture mentality after she was attacked for noting that former President Donald Trump was greeted like “a legend” when he walked into the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday night.
“Uhmmm… I do not align myself with any political party or individual politicians. I never said Donald Trump is a legend. I said he was a legend… in that arena (key part of the sentence),” Megan Fox wrote in an Instagram Story, responding to backlash she had received.
“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,” the Transformers star explained. “That was an observable fact. Not my opinion. Really loving this uneducated, mid-evil, pitch fork carrying, burn a witch at the stake mentality though. The world needs more of that.”
Fox received backlash after telling guest host Arsenio Hall during her Monday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that President Trump was greeted like “a legend” by UFC fans when he entered the arena to watch the match between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor.
“I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber, and [Donald] Trump was also in my row,” Fox told Hall. “And I’ve never seen Secret Service in person before. So he had, like, 30 Secret Service with him, and he was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in.”

President Trump did, in fact, appear to be treated like a legend on Saturday night, as the crowd could be heard chanting “USA” when he walked into the arena.

Fox was not the only celebrity attacked by the woke leftist mob for acknowledging the 45th president’s presence at the UFC match on Saturday.
Actor Mel Gibson appeared to take his acknowledgment further by showing a public display of respect for the former President of the United States.
A viral video apparently shows Gibson saluting President Trump at the UFC match, which triggered the cancel culture cohort.
