On Thursday, a viral photo of vocal anti-Trump actor John Cusack sitting down during a military salute at Wrigley Field sparked criticism online.
"Here’s [John Cusack] staying firmly seated during tonight's military salute at Wrigley Field," read a tweet featuring a photo of the actor surrounded by standing folks at a Cubs game on Wednesday.
Cusack gave a slew of angry responses in reaction to the photo. He claimed that he was merely slow to stand up for the salute, while also belittling patriotism and suggesting the military salute at Wrigley Field was just promoting the military industrial complex.
"I didn’t stand up for Boeing military salute — fast enough for some maga f*** - see?" the actor wrote in a tweet, referencing a supporter of President Donald Trump.
