Megan Fox has defended calling former president Donald Trump a ‘legend’.
The actress was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week and, during her chat with the host, she discussed sitting next to the 75-year-old at the UFC 264 fight in Las Vegas.
She said: “I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber, and Trump was also in my row.
Watch the moment Megan Fox made the comments below…
“He had, like, thirty secret services with him. He was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in.”
Fox then explained that when the controversial businessman came along, she started to feel concerned about her safety.
“If someone is a target, then I’m like, I could be harmed because I’m adjacent to where he is,” she said. “I was worried about my own safety, that’s all I was caring about.”
Some viewers were left thinking the mum-of-three was subtly showing her support for the Republican. However, she’s has now clarified what she actually meant.
On her Instagram stories, she said: “I do not align myself with any political party or individual politicians.
“I never said Donald Trump is a legend. I said he was a legend … in that arena (key part of the sentence).”
She continued: “The arena was filled with UFC fight fans. Many of them clearly Republican based on the insane crowd reaction he received walking into the T-Mobile venue. That was an observable fact. Not my opinion.”
She then blasted social media users who had tried to twist her appearance on the show.
“Really loving this uneducated, mid-evil, pitchfork carrying, burn a witch at the stake mentality though,” she penned. “The world needs more of that.”
