Donald Trump has paid tribute to the late Kirstie Alley.
Alley died of cancer at the age of 71. She was a vocal supporter of the former US President.
On Monday (December 5), Trump wrote on Truth Social: “Kirstie was a great person who really loved America. She will be missed!!!”
That cheers star faced backlash online after announcing her plans to vote for Trump in 2020 because he is “not a politician”.
In an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox Nation in 2021, Alley said that in 2015 she was advised to keep her political views to herself and was “blacked out” by Hollywood for not doing so.
“People say, ‘You’re so brave.’ I’m like, ‘No, I think I’m stupid,'” she said. “It’s so strange to me because artists are mostly freethinkers.
“You can cook meth and sleep with hookers as long as you don’t seem to have voted for Trump. I feel like I’m there The Twilight Zone a little, with the whole concept of it.”
