Twitter Blasts Yellowstone Star Kevin Costner After He Backs Wyoming Republican Candidate Liz Cheney

John Dutton makes headlines.

This recently became known Kevin Costner is the highest paid tv actor on television with his whopping salary of $1.3 million per episode. and

Other actors in the Taylor Sheridan universe, Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, are each making $1 million per episode for the upcoming prequel series 1923, and Sylvester Stallone, who stars in Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming show tulsa king, will also make $1 million per episode.

But now Costner is making headlines for a whole different reason.

Wearing a T-shirt that read “I support Liz Cheney,” Costner was just drawing a political line in the sand.

She shared the photo with the caption:

“Real men put country before party.”

I mean, I can’t say I disagree with the “country over party sentiment.” We would probably be much better off if politicians could put the good of the country ahead of their own political party.

Other than that, I don’t really have a damn clue about Wyoming’s political landscape, nor am I sure this photo is even real. Costner doesn’t seem the type to wear a political t-shirt like that on set. Having said that, it would also be utter madness to tamper with a promotional photo… pretty sure that’s illegal.

Here’s what I know: Liz Cheney (oldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney) is a Republican representative in the state of Wyoming seeking re-election against a challenge from Harriet Hageman, who is backed by former President Donald Trump.

After Jan. 6, Cheney announced her support for President Trump, and it’s not hard to see why that could be a problem for her re-election given Wyoming is one of the most supportive states for the former president. She is also vice chair of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots in the Capitol.

With Donald Trump still enjoying a fairly strong base of support, Wyoming’s die-hard Trump supporters may be more inclined to vote for Hageman, and the polls seem to indicate so.

And those same people are pretty mad at their favorite TV cowboy, Kevin Costner, too.

People took to Twitter to blast Costner for the shirt, calling him a fake cowboy, part of the Hollywood elite, and a hypocrite.

Costner has previously described himself as an independent. He backed Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 primary but has previously denounced former President Trump but warned that all leaders should act in the country’s best interests.

He told the Daily Beast in 2020:

“I’m voting on who I think has the best interests in the country and how we sit in the world…TThe Democratic Party doesn’t represent everything I think, and neither does the Republican Party right now… not at all. So I find it too limiting.”

Of course, Costner’s character up yellowstone, John Dutton will be running for governor of Montana in season 5…which is scheduled to premiere on November 13th.
