So it turns out that Donald Trump is not a big fan of Brad Pitt! The President of the United States had nothing better to do than share his opinion of the actor after checking out his acceptance speech at the Oscars.
And in true Trump fashion, he did not hesitate to give Pitt a mean nickname, labeling him as a ‘little wiseguy.’
At this point, it feels like getting called names by Trump is nearly a compliment since that means they’ve managed to grab his attention and upset him somehow.
Of course, the reason why he’s dissing the country’s beloved actor is that he made reference to Trump’s impeachment trial during his acceptance speech after winning his first ever Oscar for his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood role.
‘He got up and said little wiseguy statements. He’s a little wiseguy,’ the Donald said of Brad Pitt and the actor is probably having a good, healthy laugh hearing the nickname and realizing he’s managed to get under the controversial president’s skin.
Furthermore, Trump also admitted that it’s not just the speech that made him dislike Brad.
Apparently, he was ‘never a fan.’ Hearing his name, the crowd of Trump supporters started booing.
Obviously, this is not the first time he incites people to hate. He actually often attacks his critics in Hollywood and he also gets criticized quite often so at this point it’s safe to say he’s simply not a fan of the whole film industry!
As for Brad, he did not actually name drop Trump in his speech but the shade was not subtle at all.
Besides, he did name former White House national security adviser John Bolton, mentioning the fact that he was not allowed to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial.
‘They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week. I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing,’ Pitt started his speech before even going on to thank anyone.
