is no doubt a well-celebrated actress. She has her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and has won an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, a SAG Award, and has been nominated nine times for Golden Globe Awards.
However, despite her roles in famous films like Thelma & Louise and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, it’s a quote about Donald Trump and Hillary Clintonthat is haunting her online today. “I believe in a way she’s [Hillary Clinton] more dangerous, except they’re both talking to Henry Kissinger apparently lately.”
This quote has often been misattributed as her simply saying Clinton was more dangerous than Trump in every way, not just foreign policy, Sarandon has said she doesn’t mind the misquote.
“Not exactly, but I don’t mind that quote. I did think she was very, very dangerous. We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]. It wouldn’t be much smoother. Look what happened under Obama that we didn’t notice.”
She began to trend across Twitter today as many users were reminded of the “quote.” One user said, “I’m still waiting for Susan Sarandon and all the others who said ‘Hillary will be worst than Trump’ to apologize.” Another said, “Since Susan Sarandon is trending I want to remind you that she helped to elect Donald J. Trump.”

These two Tweets started a massive debate online as not everyone agreed with the assessment. As one user put it, “idk why people think a bunch of us went out and voted based on what Susan Sarandon said on a talk show or whatever.”

Attention Hillary sycophants: Susan Sarandon is NOT responsible for Hillary's loss in 2016. Hillary Clinton was responsible because she ran the worst campaign of all time.

I'm blocking anyone who repeats the bullshit line of "Susan Sarandon got the orange idiot elected".
FUCK OFF WITH THAT SHIT.

Plenty also showed their support for Sarandon in general. One Twitter user went so far as to claim that, “she’s awesome and is the woman who was ACTUALLY right about everything.”

But what got Sarandon to trend in the first place? It all began when another post went viral on Twitter asking, “Did you ever NOT watch a movie because there was an actor in it you didn’t like?”
Anything featuring Susan Sarandon is a firm no now.

Many users ended up chiming in that they wouldn’t watch movies that featured Sarandon in them, among other big names like Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood.
I won’t watch Susan Sarandon, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Jon Voight.

For some, it was the “votes she cost us” that are the reason they refuse to watch her acting any longer.
Susan Sarandon is trending.
While I'm not a fan of 'cancel culture' I'm proud to admit that since she went out of her way to elect tfg in 2016 I haven't watched (nor will I ever again) any production she's been a part of. There's no way to tell just how many votes she cost us.
