Former President Donald Trump responded to the news that this Academy Awards suffered record-low ratings, warning that it will get much, much worse if Hollywood doesn’t shape up.
“What used to be called The Academy Awards, and now is called the ‘Oscars’—a far less important and elegant name—had the lowest Television Ratings in recorded history, even much lower than last year, which set another record low,” Trump said in a statement, as reported by the Daily Caller. “If they keep with the current ridiculous formula, it will only get worse—if that’s possible.”
“These television people spend all their time thinking about how to promote the Democrat Party, which is destroying our Country, and cancel Conservatives and Republicans. That formula certainly hasn’t worked very well for The Academy!” he added.
As The Daily Wire reported on Monday, the Oscars suffered a whopping 58% decline in viewership with less than 10 million people tuning in to watch the broadcast:
