Representatives of Paramount+ ended an interview with Kelsey Grammer after the renowned "Frasier" actor openly said that he still supports Donald Trump.
Recently, the comedy actor had an interview with BBC journalist Justin Webb, in which they addressed various aspects of Grammer's life, as well as the return of "Frasier" after two decades off the air, on Paramount+. However, the conversation turned political when the host asked the entertainer about his political leanings.
"You were, at least you were a Trump supporter, I'm fascinated to know if you still are?" asked Webb.
Grammer, 68, known for his iconic role as therapist Dr. Frasier Crane, unreservedly confirmed his support for the former president by replying, "I am, and that's about all, let that be the end of it."

After the segment ended, the interviewer spoke about the conversation with the actor and revealed that the "Paramount+ PR people" were the ones who decided to end the interview because they were less than enthusiastic about the direction it was going. According to Webb, Grammer was willing to discuss his support for Trump.
"The Paramount+ PR people (...) decided that we'd had plenty of time for our interview. But I should stress that he [Grammer] was absolutely perfectly happy to talk about why he supports Donald Trump and still does in the coming election," Webb stated.
This is not the first public encounter in which Grammer has expressed his support for Trump. The actor, who voted for Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections, has previously spoken about his affinity for the former president and his policies.
