Dave Bautista recently did an interview with The Independent where he made it known that he thinks there is a need for celebrities to share their political opinions.
The former WWE Champion turned actor has been vocal about his own opinions. He has received the reputation of being one of the most politically outspoken personalities in Hollywood.
This includes a widely publicized dispute with Disney over the firing of director James Gunn from the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 3. He’s also gone after President Trump, who the former WWE star called an “elitist POS” in an angry tweet.
“I was never really politically outspoken until recently. But I feel obligated because I think things have gotten so bad.
“I never really wanted to influence anybody’s opinion, but now I think it’s come to the point where things have gotten so bad that you pick a side, and you voice your opinion, and hopefully people will follow suit.”
Bautista is slated to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next month should plans continue.
