Antonio Sabato Jr. Says He Was Blacklisted From His Acting Career After Supporting Donald Trump

Antonio Sabato Jr. claims that he said goodbye to his acting career the moment he voiced his support for Donald Trump for President.

The 48-year-old former movie star and model now works in construction in Florida, he told Variety in a new interview.

“It’s been terrible,” he says. “It’s mind-blowing. It’s a disgrace. It’s tough, because if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know.”

Antonio adds that there were many projects he had lined up that fell through.

“I was talking to a distribution company about producing a film that was set to go, and they told me to my face, ‘We will never distribute a movie with you in it because of your affiliation with the president,’” he shared. “The reality is the power that makes movies happen in Hollywood–casting directors, producers, executive producers, directors–they’re all liberal. They hate anyone or anything who supports this president.”

Antonio continues, “I was the first celebrity to come out and talk about the president, and he had my vote from day one. I was the first one to say he was going to win. My integrity is intact. What I believe in is still intact. What doesn’t break you makes you stronger–that’s what they say. So I’m stronger than ever, and I didn’t have to lie about who I am.”

He’s also tried to get back with his former reps, but was declined.

“They all said, ‘No, we’re not going to represent you,’” he says. “Not a reason. Just no, plain and simple. They wouldn’t touch me because it would be too tough to get me a job.”

Antonio still plans to vote for Donald Trump again this election.

“The country is doing fantastic. I think he’ll be elected by 100 million votes.”
