Big Hollywood Producer Tries to Go On Anti-Trump Rant at Awards Show, Gets Booed Off the Stage

Big Hollywood producer Michael Blum may have misread the political bent of his audience while accepting an award and was subsequently booed off the stage for ranting on Trump.
Blum is famous for producing such hits as “Get Out,” and “Whiplash,” and for his efforts, he was presented with an award at the Israel Film Festival in Los Angeles. During his acceptance speech, Blum, unprompted, began ranting about Trump.
The rant was not well received, according to the Hollywood Reporter :

“The great thing about this country is that you can like [Donald] Trump, but I don’t have to, and I can say what I feel about it — and I don’t like it!,” he responded as a few people started walking out of the Steve Tisch Cinema Center inside the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.
Blum went on as the booing got louder and more aggressive, with shouting and whistling disrupting him.
“As you can see from this auditorium, it’s the end of civil discourse,” he continued. “We have a president who calls the press the enemy of the people. Thanks to our president, anti-Semitism is on the rise.”

Blum seemed to have it backward. He used his receipt of an award for his art as an opportunity to bash a President not everyone hates as much as him, then seemed awfully surprised when the crowd began expressing their annoyance. Blum was forced to leave the stage with security escort due to some audience members making their way to the stage to pull Blum off.
