Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. Says His Support of Trump Ended His Hollywood Career

Antonio Sabato Jr., in an interview with Variety, revealed that his career in Hollywood was abruptly shut down by his support of President Donald Trump, as Fox News reports.

The 48-year-old actor said that after the 2016 election, he “had to sell everything” and “pay all my debts” because he was “blacklisted” after making his support of President Trump public. He said that everyone, from “agents to managers to commercial agents,” all left him and he was forced to find another job in order to financially take care of his children.

Sabato was one of the few celebrities to speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention. It was after this speech that his blacklisting began. Sabato added that “if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know.

Sabato ran for Congress in 2018, from California’s 26th district in the House of Representatives, but lost to incumbent Democrat Julia Brownley, receiving 38 percent of the vote. After this, he moved to Florida and took up a construction job.

Sabato also said that he knows of many other pro-Trump celebrities who simply keep their views quiet, and added his prediction that President Trump will win re-election this November.
