Actress and liberal activist Alyssa Milano blasted Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight simply for voicing his support of President Donald Trump.

What happened?

Milano shared her scathing remarks on Twitter, in which she branded the 80-year-old veteran actor a "has been" and more.

On Saturday, Milano addressed videos on Voight's timeline, which featured the actor delivering pro-Trump remarks.

Milano shared one of Voight's videos and wrote, "Now I understand why Republicans like to discredit actors and our political views. 'Stay in your lane, Jon!' 'Has been!' 'F-lister trying to stay relevant!' 'Nobody cares what an out of touch actor thinks!'"

Over two videos, titled, "To my fellow Americans," Voight called Trump "the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln."

Elsewhere in the video, Voight argued his support for the president and criticized Democrats for their liberal rhetoric.

"I know that you'll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love," Voight said during the video. "This job is not easy, for he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction.

"Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln," he added.

He also praised the president and his administration for improving the state of America on all fronts, calling the nation "stronger, safer and with more jobs" under the Trump administration.

What else?

The majority of responses to Milano's tweet were negative, and pointed out her hypocrisy for railing against the actor when she is often the brunt of political ire from the other side, and often demands tolerance for liberal opinions.

One user wrote, "@jonvoight is no f-lister; 1 Academy award & 4 Golden Globes and still acting. More credits than yours. No need to call names because of differing opinions and beliefs. #tolerancegoesbothways."

Another added, "Am I the only one who sees the irony in this tweet?"

"You would be lucky to have 1/10th of his acting career and talent," one user railed.
