Zoe Saldana: Trump Became President Because Hollywood Became ‘Arrogant Bullies’

A-list actress Zoe Saldana says Donald Trump won the election, thanks, in part, to “arrogant” celebrities whose personal insults created sympathy for the Republican candidate and galvanized his supporters.

“We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” the Oscar-winner told AFP.

Saldana, the face of multiple blockbuster film franchises–Star Trek, Avatar, and Guardians of the Galazy–says celebrities demonizing Trump only emboldened the voters who believed in him.

“We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong … and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises,” she said.
