Disney’s The Lion King actor Billy Eichner has deleted a tweet where he wanted “Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell.”

Eichner tweeted out that he wanted President Trump “and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell” following the reports of the attack against Jussie Smollett.

Eichner has since deleted that tweet, but a follow up tweet blaming President Trump and “MAGA culture” for the attack still remains. He states, “Trump and MAGA culture have encouraged and emboldened these types of attacks and that is truly f****** unforgivable.”

Billy Eichner, who is probably most well known for voicing Mr. Ambrose in Bob’s Burgers and playing Craig Middlebrooks on Parks and Recreation has taken shots at Mike Pence’s wife, Karen Pence. He’s also referred to President Trump as a “b****” on multiple occasions.

He also stated that “Trump supporters have destroyed the heart and soul of America.” He would go on to say, “There is blood on the hands of every Trump supporter. Backwards, ignorant, racist and unforgivable.”

Eichner will voice Timon in Disney’s upcoming The Lion King film directed by Jon Favreau. He has used his Twitter account to promote the film sharing the trailer as well as a new poster.

The Lion King comes out on July 19th.

What do you think about Eichner’s comments? Will it affect whether or not you see The Lion King?
