Comedian Tim Allen has come under fire for his word choice in describing being conservative in Hollywood.
Allen explained his views during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Thursday, after the host mentioned that Allen attended the Inauguration in January.
Of speaking positively of President Donald Trump in Hollywood, Allen said, “You’ve got to be real careful around here. You get beat up if don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened..."
Allen’s comments drew criticism online for the comparison to Germany during the 1930s.
