‘Clint Eastwood’ Twitter account suspended after praising Trump

“It’s official – voicing support for ‘Our’ President elect is now ‘hate speech’” wrote one user. “Censorship and authoritarism [sic] show their claws on Twitter again,” added another.

The good, the bad and the politically correct.

Twitter had Clint Eastwood fans up in arms on Thursday for suspending an account purportedly belonging to the actor following a pro-Trump tweet.

“Thank you America, I don’t have long left to live but now I know the last few years will be great, I can’t thank you enough #PresidentTrump,” tweeted @EastwoodUSA, just hours after the race was called for The Donald.

The social media site apparently wasn’t a fan of the tweet, and chose to suspend the account a short time after — sparking cries of censorship throughout the night.

Clint Eastwood: Donald Trump Challenging ‘Kiss-Ass Generation’

Actor-director Clint Eastwood believes that Donald Trump is benefitting from a trend in American culture by saying what he believes, despite criticism from all sides.

“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he said “But everybody —the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just fucking get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Eastwood said that he hadn’t spoken to Trump about an endorsement, and hadn’t endorsed anyone for president. He clarified that he didn’t agree with everything that Trump said, but indicated that it was refreshing to see an unfiltered politician.

“He’s just saying what’s on his mind and sometimes it’s not so good,” he said. “And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”

Eastwood replied. “I think people are looking for somebody who is outspoken and who isn’t afraid. And he seems to have kind of a fearless attitude.”

Thursday on “Extra,” Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood weighed in on the 2016 Republican presidential field.

“I think there’s quite a few of them who are really good people,” Eastwood said.

Co-host Mario Lopez asked Eastwood about his feelings on Trump, to which Eastwood said he seems to fill a desire of what people want in a candidate. He also spoke of Carson and said any of those would be better than the current president, Barack Obama.

“You know, I don’t know,” Eastwood replied. “I think people are looking for somebody who is outspoken and who isn’t afraid. And he seems to have kind of a fearless attitude. I like Ben Carson because he is kind of a common sense guy. Anyone of them would be better than what we got.”
