Paul Rodriguez is a rarity in Hollywood and the entertainment industry. He is an open Trump supporter. That has caused some problems for him. During a recent interview he even said he has received death threats.
Latino Comedian Paul Rodriguez: I Get Death Threats for Supporting Trump
Actor-comedian Paul Rodriguez, one of the original Latin Kings of Comedy, said last Thursday that he’s received death threats after publicly stating his support for President Donald Trump.
Speaking to TMZ outside the Laugh Factory, the iconic comedy club on the Sunset Strip, Rodriquez was unapologetic about his support for the administration and said he welcomes differences of opinion about politics.
“If you disagree with me, it doesn’t mean we can’t be friends,” the Mexican funnyman said. “I received some cowards threatening my life. It’s sad that people think like that when you disagree with their politics.”
The a.k.a Pablo star said he is facing blow back after praising President Trump’s border policies in an interview with TMZ earlier November. “I agree that America should protect its borders,” Rodriquez told the outlet at the time, before boarding a flight at LAX for South Korea. “You can’t let everyone in.”
