Pro-Trump Actors Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain received a death threat on Twitter after being set to portray anti-Trump FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Dean Cain, best known for his role as Superman and Clark Kent in “Lois and Clark” is a known conservative and frequent Fox News guest.
Kristy Swanson has also tweeted her support for President Trump multiple times in the past.
The account @sponson tweeted “Have the Capitol Steps open, lock the doors, and set the theatre on fire.”
While the tweet has been removed, the account has NOT been banned.
Kristy Swanson, famed for starring in the 1992 film version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, says she and actor Dean Cain have received a “death threat” over a live stage reading they are starring in next month — because it supports Donald Trump.
As Politico has reported, the conservative actors are set to play former Trump-Russia investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in a Washington, D.C. performance titled FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers. The reading will pore over the former FBI agents’ text messages to each other, highlighting their extramarital affair and disdain for Trump. Cain will play Strzok, while Swanson has been cast as Page.
But news of the production, which Politico described as “Trumpian,” has stirred up some animosity from critics of the president.
Swanson, who frequently tweets pro-Trump messages, shared a screenshot on a tweet sent by an anonymous troll threatening to “lock the doors and set the theater on fire.” The actress called the message a “death threat” and demanded it be reported. Cain retweeted her post.
She later noted that the tweet had been removed, but was disappointed that the account which sent it hadn’t been “banned.”
Her fans voiced their outrage over the incident, saying the “threat” wasn’t being taken more seriously because of Swanson’s right-wing views.
