Broadway star Patti LuPone is facing backlash over a public call-out of US Senator Lindsey Graham last night (18 July).
The 70-year-old star took to Twitter to express her disappointment in the American Republican politician after he refused to call President Donald Trump racist in light of recent events
‘Lindsey Graham, you are a disgrace,’ LuPone tweeted. ‘On a personal note, why don’t you just bite the bullet and come out. You might just come to your senses.’
In response, one social media user wrote: ‘Homophobic Tweet of the Day.’
Another responded: ‘I fail to see how Lindsey’s sexual behavior is any of your business.’
While another tweeted: ‘Spouting homophobia to own the conservatives.’
LuPone is yet to publicly address the backlash, while Graham is also yet to respond.
