Harrison Ford has joined the Hollywood elite on their tirade against the U.S. president. Fans aren’t pleased and are choosing not to see Call of the The Wild.
The 77-year-old actor has joined the political debate by throwing insults at Donald Trump. Many have celebrated his attack on the current U.S. president while others are not too pleased with his latest political stunt.
Disappointed fans are now choosing not to support Walt Disney Studios or Harrison Ford by going to see Call of The Wild at the cinemas.
On Monday, February 17th, Harrison Ford appeared as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and during his interview the host brought up Donald J. Trump.
Kimmel alleged that Trump said the movie was ‘the best call ever’ obviously alluding to the call with the Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky. After Kimmel’s political rant it appeared that Harrison Ford was in tears, laughing.
Harrison Ford calls Trump SOB and people boycott Call of The Wild.
He responded to Kimmel’s bit by saying, “that’s the first thing that son of a bitch has done for me… ever.”

Ford has criticised Donald Trump in the past on climate change. Last year he pressed Trump on the importance of acknowledging climate change in a speech on the closing day of the World Government Summit in Dubai. “Around the world, elements of leadership — including in my own country — to preserve their state and the status quo, deny or denigrate science,” Ford said. “They are on the wrong side of history.”
Ford doesn’t care about Star Wars
His jab at Trump comes right after he was asked his opinion on Luke Skywalker being a force ghost to which the actor responded, “I don’t know what a force ghost is, and I don’t really care.”
This isn’t the first time he has brushed off questions about his role as the iconic space scavenger, Han Solo. Ford’s general opinion of the Star Wars is not a positive one, as he considers most of them to be ‘geeks’.
“Harrison Ford doesn’t have an opinion unless he is paid enough to have one,” a disgruntled fan responded on Twitter.
Some people think that this may the very reason for Ford’s sudden interest in politics; if he doesn’t have an opinion on the film franchise that made him famous, why should he care about things he’s never expressed any interest in before.
