Is Megan Fox a Republican? Is Megan Fox MAGA? Is Megan Fox even political at all? Those are the questions percolating this week. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly were in Las Vegas this past weekend, like so many celebrities. They went to see the big UFC fight, and they were seated in the VIP section with… Donald Trump and his Secret Service agents. Megan described the scene during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live a few days ago (I have queued up to the relevant portion):

She says, in part:

“I was in a row with Bieber, and Trump was also in my row. He had, like, thirty secret service with him. He was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in. I was like, I don’t know how I feel about it, because if someone is a target, then I’m like, I could be harmed because I’m adjacent to where he is. So I was worried about my own safety, that’s all I was caring about. But yeah, I’ve never seen anything like that before. It was crazy.”

She didn’t say Donald Trump IS a legend, she said he WAS a legend, and in context, it was clear that she was referring to the support that he got in that room. That being said, I understand how people thought Megan was being somewhat supportive of Trump. In any case, there was a desperate need for clarification, and that’s what she did:

It’s safe to say Megan’s comments caused some conversation online, with many Trump supporters lauding her for calling him a “legend” and others criticizing her choice of words. Now Megan has clarified her remarks, posting a statement on her Instagram story on Wednesday night insisting that she “never said Donald Trump is a legend.”

“I do not align myself with any political party or individual politicians,” Megan began her statement.

“I never said Donald Trump is a legend,” she continued. “I said he was a legend… in that arena (key part of the sentence). The arena was filled with UFC fight fans. Many of them clearly Republican based off the insane crowd reaction he received walking into the T-Mobile venue,” Megan said. “That was an observable fact. Not my opinion.”

She went on to say criticism of her comments was a result of an “uneducated, mid-evil [sic], pitch fork carrying, burn a witch at the stake mentality.”

Let’s all start saying “mid-evil” for medieval, y’all. Trump is not mid-evil, he’s high-key evil. But yes, it’s clear now that Megan was referencing the support Trump got in that arena. But she could have been clearer in the interview with Arsenio Hall! Megan’s not MAGA though, she’s just… privileged enough to be apolitical when it suits her.
