Watch: Megan Fox Stands By 'Trump Legend' Statement

Written By BlabberBuzz | Saturday, 17 July 2021 05:15

Megan Fox has hit back at critics who grilled her for remarks she made concerning former president Donald Trump.

The actress was criticized last week following an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live during which she spoke about attending the UFC match between Connor McGregor and Dustin Poirer, where Trump was present. When he walked into the venue, the response was mostly positive, she revealed.

"He was a legend, that arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in," Fox said.

"I don't know how I feel about it because if someone is a target then I'm like 'I could be harmed because I'm adjacent to where he is' so I was worried about my own safety, that's what I was caring about," she added.

Criticism surrounding her "legend" comment followed, but Fox was ready to back herself on social media.

"I do not align myself with any political party or individual politicians," she wrote in an Instagram Story. "I never said Donald Trump is a legend. I said he was a legend.. in that arena (key part of that sentence). The arena was filled with UFC fight fans. Many of them are clearly Republican based on the insane crowd reaction he received walking into the T-Mobile venue."

Fox pointed out that, "based on the insane reaction" Trump received when he walked into the arena, most of the people packing out the venue were "clearly Republican."

"Really loving this uneducated, mid-evil, pitch fork carrying, burn a witch at the stake mentality though. The world needs more of that," she ended, adding heart and kiss emojis.

Fox has been making famous over the past few months following her separation from her husband, Brian Austin Green. Soon after they ended it, it appeared she was seeing a rapper and punk rocker Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker. The two met in March while filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass" in Puerto Rico. In May, Green announced his split from Fox, and in November she officially filed for divorce.

A source later revealed Fox wanted to hurry up because she and Baker were planning for their future.

"Megan has planned to file for divorce for a while," the insider told People. "She and Brian already agreed to a custody plan so Megan hopes the divorce will happen quickly and be uncomplicated." Green and Fox share sons Noah Shannon, 7, Bodhi Ransom, 6, and Journey, 4.

"They are making plans for the future and want to live together," the source continued. "Megan has been taking things slowly though to make sure her sons are doing O.K."
