Scott Baio, the 59-year-old actor, best known for appearing on the sit-com Happy Days 40 years ago, claims he has been the victim of an ongoing smear campaign.
Like his fellow D-List actor Antonio Sabato Jr, Baio says ever since he voiced his support for Trump speaking at the 2016 RNC he can’t find work.
Baio is in the middle of a Twitter fued disputing, bullying #MeToo allegations that were made against him years ago and that nobody, except for him, still remembers or even cares about.
His supporters have been circulating a petition on change.org accusing Hollywood of “McCarthyism” in 2020 and demanding a certain producer be investigated by ABC Network, Disney, SAG, and AFTRA for allegedly saying,
“I have no interest in doing anything with Scott ‘Trump’ Baio!”
The petition, created earlier this month, says,
“Blacklisting people in 2020 because you do not agree with their political beliefs will not be tolerated!”
Baio made headlines in 2018 when he was accused of homophobic bullying by his former Charles in Charge costar Alexander Polinsky, which included Baio allegedly calling Polinsky a,
“faggot,” “effeminate,” and telling him all the gay sex acts he would do when he grew up. Polinsky also accused Baio of exposing himself to him.
Around that same time, another former Charles in Charge costar, Nicole Eggert, came forward to say that not only had she witnessed the homophobic abuse, but she was a victim of it herself. Eggert claimed Baio had molested her when she was just 14.
Baio denied all of the accusations and he was never charged, convicted, or questioned by authorities.
More recently, he got into a titter feud with coming Wanda Sykes, for whatever reason, he decided to target her in his criticism of Joe Biden‘s flippant comments about Black voters, for which Biden later apologized.
Baio’s last film was a 2014 made-for-TV movie called A Fairly Odd Summer, came out two years before he ever backed Trump, seems like work dried up and his Trump affiliations didn’t help.
Antonio Sabàto Jr. said after speaking at the Republican Nation Convention in 2016, he too had a hard time finding work.
We are putting together a plan to create a conservative movie studio for all patriots to do projects that Hollywood would never do.
No more blacklisting and no more injustice from the socialist’s elites.”
Baio has Sabato Jr on speed dial at this point, no doubt…
