Hollywood Actress Opens Up About ‘Unbelievable’ Hate She Received After ‘Coming Out’ in Support of Romney

Actress Melissa Joan Hart revealed details about the fallout following her endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in November of 2012. Even though she politely stated that she was merely exercising her free speech and not trying to offend anyone, the left exploded with “unbelievable” hate.

Appearing on HuffPost Live on Wednesday, Hart said she was called “every name in the book.”

“[People wrote] that they hope I die, and that they hope my children are gay, which was like somehow supposed to be some sort of punishment,” she said, adding that the “hate was really unbelievable that I got just from saying that simple tweet – just by saying I was voting.”

“I all of a sudden was the devil,” she added. “It was just amazing.”

Hart also spoke about the difficulties of being a conservative in Hollywood. In an interview with Sean Hannity last year, Hart revealed it is similar to a “black list” and “it’s a little scary.”

“It was unbelievable. I live in a country where I’m supposed to be able to have this freedom to choose who ever I want to vote for, whatever religion I want, and I feel like there are these limitations. It’s not like it used to be,” she said at the time.
