Hollywood Star Silenced for Trump Support

“Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer recently shared his ongoing support for former President Donald Trump during an interview with the BBC. The revelation led to the interview ending abruptly, shedding light on the challenges of discussing political views in the public eye.

Grammer, known for his role as therapist Dr. Frasier Crane, originated on “Cheers” and later starred in the spinoff series “Frasier” for 11 seasons. Nearly two decades later, he reprised the iconic character in the Paramount+ reboot of the show, which premiered in October.

During his conversation with BBC interviewer Justin Webb, the discussion shifted towards a political question, with Webb inquiring if Grammer still supported Trump. Webb noted that Grammer was open to discussing his support for the former president, but he mentioned that “Paramount+ PR people” were less enthusiastic about the topic.

While Grammer’s willingness to discuss his continued support for Trump was evident, it appeared that the interview was curtailed due to this subject matter. Paramount+ representatives did not immediately respond to inquiries regarding the interview.

Most of the interview centered on other aspects of Grammer’s life, including his involvement in the “Frasier” reboot and his reflections on the tragic loss of his younger sister.

In a separate interview with Fox News Digital, Grammer elaborated on his decision to bring back the beloved sitcom, emphasizing his desire to prove that the character of Frasier remained engaging, entertaining, and humorous. He also expressed a belief that there were more stories to tell about the character, echoing the sentiment that life continues to present new narratives.
