Kudos to Hollywood celebrity Ben Stiller for standing up to the progressive rabble. He refuses to submit to the demands issued by the so-called “cancel culture” to stand up for President Donald Trump, whether he agrees with him or not. History isn’t something to be casually erased.
Ben Stiller breaks ranks with the elite
For once, a Hollywood actor is able to put aside his political views for the sake of what’s right. While liberals are tearing down statues and erasing every trace of history that makes people of color uncomfortable, Ben Stiller broke ranks with the progressive elite by refusing to cut President Donald Trump out of “Zoolander,” a movie that’s been around since 2001. The Hollywood snowflakes will simply have to deal with it.
It was totally unplanned. Stiller and his crew were “shooting at the now defunct VH1 Fashion Awards. As people were coming up the red carpet, we pulled them aside and asked them to talk about Derek Zoolander,” Stiller recollects. Donald and Melania graciously played along, with Trump delivering the line, “look, without Derek Zoolander male modeling wouldn’t be what it is today.”
Stiller doesn’t want to simply erase history because it makes people uncomfortable. “I’ve had people reach out to me and say, ‘You should edit Donald Trump out of Zoolander, but at the end of the day, that was a time when that exists and that happened.” Donald Trump was in a bunch of cameos. “There were so many movies that had a silly cameo from Donald Trump,” the comedian recalled. “He represented a certain thing.”
Why Zoolander 2 bombed
Ben Stiller acknowledges that maybe he should have used President Trump again when he did Zoolander 2, which bombed at the box office. “There was a funny story that Chris Matthews told me,” he relates. “He was interviewing Trump during the campaign and there was a commercial break. ‘Zoolander 2’ had come out and was a big bomb, didn’t do well. Trump brought up ‘Zoolander 2’ and started talking about why he thought the movie didn’t do well.”
Completely off the topic they had just been discussing on camera, which had to do with nuclear arms and Trump’s stance with Russia, Trump “started going into detail (saying), ‘It’s just that in the culture people don’t care about male models any more.'”
Contrary to what the conspiracy theorists claim, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation did not cut President Trump’s cameo in the movie “Home Alone 2” for political reasons. “As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, ‘Home Alone 2’ was edited for time. The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot,” the CBC clarified a long time ago. “These edits were done in 2014 when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected President.”
