Zoe Saldana spoke out against celebs in Hollywood for “bullying” President-elect Donald Trump.
Saldana is not a supporter of the incoming President, but believes that celebrity insults hurled at “The Apprentice” star-turned-politician discouraged much of middle America.

The star’s latest flick, “Live By Night,” features Ben Affleck’s bootlegging gangster character facing off against the Ku Klux Klan.
“I’m learning from [Trump’s victory] with a lot of humility. If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times,” she added, referencing the Klan.
