Abigail Breslin Defends Friendship With Tiffany Trump, Calls Hate "Disgusting"
"It is honestly disgusting of people to be so cruel about Tiff, who is such a wonderful and kind person," said the actress after she received hate for posting a photo of herself with Donald Trump's youngest daughter.
Abigail Breslin is not here for the haters.
The Scream Queens actress was attacked on social media after she posted a photo of herself alongside Tiffany Trump, Donald Trump's youngest daughter, at their mutual friend Andrew Warren's birthday bash on Tuesday night. (Warren, a designer who cast Tiffany in a fashion show, has also defended Tiffany on social media in the past.) Commenters were outraged that the 20-year-old would associate with a Trump offspring; however, Breslin was quick to put the haters in their place.
"I have known Tiff for years," she wrote on Twitter. "She's a beautiful soul and regardless of your political views, do not take them out on her."
ALRIGHT Everyone commenting mean shit on my last insta, I have known Tiff for years she's a beautiful soul and regardless of ur (contd)— Abigail Breslin (@yoabbaabba) January 18, 2017
Political views, do not take it out on her it is completely unfair— Abigail Breslin (@yoabbaabba) January 18, 2017
Also I would like to ask every single person on here how they'd feel if they were persecuted solely based on the actions of their parents.— Abigail Breslin (@yoabbaabba) January 18, 2017
The actress even flipped the script, asking those who dissed her friendship to imagine "how they'd feel if they were persecuted solely based on the actions of their parents."
In a follow-up post on Instagram, Breslin clarified that her political views don't necessarily align with those of her friend's father either and stated that their political differences do not change the way she feels about Tiffany. "I didn't vote for Trump," she wrote. "It's none of anyone's business, but I didn't. However, it is honestly disgusting of people to be so cruel about Tiff, who is a wonderful and kind person."
She concluded, "If you're judging me for hanging out with someone I've known for years at our mutual friend's bday party, you need to reevaluate your life."
Tiffany and her mom, Marla Maples, have been making headlines this week after it was reported that Maples asked a hairstylist to do her hair for free for the inauguration in exchange for social media mentions.
