‘CUCKS CUCKS CUCKS!’: Silicon Valley Star Describes Being Harassed By Trump Voters at Bar


kumail-nanjianieditedIn a series of tweets earlier today, Silicon Valley actor Kumail Nanjiani described a confrontation with a couple of Donald Trump voters at a Los Angeles bar last night.

Nanjiani, who was born in Pakistan, was at the bar with his friend and co-star Thomas Middleditch when the two men, who he stated were white and in their 20s, approached them and told the two actors they were big fans but wrong on Trump.

When Nanjiani said he didn’t want to talk about politics, things got heated quickly.

While Nanjiani praised the bartender and bouncer for acting quickly, he reflected how things are probably much worse in other parts of the country.

Since Trump’s shocking upset of Hillary Clinton, there have been a number of racist incidents reported, with the Southern Poverty Law Center listing more than 200 actions of harassment and intimidation since the election. There have been some hoaxes, however, with one Muslim woman making up a story about being assaulted by a Trump supporter.

At the same time, there have been reports of violence against Trump supporters and some anti-Trump protests across the country have resulted in injuries and property damage. Recently, a photojournalist was attacked at a protest in Oakland.
