Dean Cain is an unabashed President Trump supporter, which detractors love to point out is seemingly ironic considering Superman was from another planet (Krypton), and crashed landed onto Earth making him arguably an “illegal immigrant”. Although the Princeton grad is part of a small group of Hollywood conservatives (Clint Eastwood, James Woods, Gary Sinise) he’s one of the most outspoken, especially on Twitter where he got into a publicized beef with Tom Arnold.
The Roseanne actor called out Cain for his 2018 appearance at the Values Voter Summit, hosted by conservative christian group The Family Research Council. “@RealDeanCain is another @realDonaldTrump loving fake Christian coward which makes Dean Cain anti-LGBTQ & racist,” Arnold tweeted. Cain not only replied “Tom, you’re a cowardly, slanderous weasel,” but confronted Arnold in real-life.
According The Hollywood Reporter, Cain got up in Arnold’s grill backstage at Larry King Now. “I’ve always supported gay rights,” Cain said in the phone-recorded video. “You’re giving me guilt by association and that’s wrong.” Things got heated but the beef was squashed after they “hugged it out.” However, the two actors continued their war of words with Cain later tweeting that Arnold “backed down” when confronted. The True Lies star saw it differently, telling THR, “He played this icon, Superman, but he’s an idiot. If he wanted to fight, I took my glasses off for him. He’s a f***ing p***y. Next time I see him we’ll get it going and his buddy can film it.”
