Steven Seagal set social media ablaze Wednesday after he gave an interview condemning professional athletes who protest during the national anthem.
It wasn’t so much what he said, but how he looked, that got the internet all whipped up with thoughts on which classic villain the onetime popular action star now resembles.
From James Bond to Batman to video games, Twitter users went back and forth with thoughts and retro quotes, trying to outdo one another with quips.
Seagal is not the lean, mean fighting machine he was in his prime, but still rocks jet black hair and a kimono, which added fuel to the poking fun fire.
The 65-year-old Seagal spoke from Russia to ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
The actor, who has bragged about his friendship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, also defended President Donald Trump in the interview and reminded viewers he was once a reserve chief in the Louisiana sheriff’s office.
Needless to say, the internet used all of that to its mocking advantage.
