This is a very humble opinion of mine, do with it as you please. It seems that a lot of people are hinting this at you, but nobody will come straight out and say it. This message is directed at a random "you", so please, if it does not apply to you, take no offense.

I see that you are tagging yourself on Twitter with #actorslife, so it seems that you want to be found online and maybe someone will connect with you on a personal level and offer you a work opportunity. Is that it? Can I ask why you have a strong political statement pinned to your Twitter account? I guess it's funny, Trump is dumb, Hillary is a liar, yeah, we get it. Do you realize that by doing this you might have just possibly alienated about 40% - 50% of the U.S. population? Wesley Snipes is Wesley Snipes, and he can always bet on black (you get 2 points if you get the reference), but you should head over to the poker table and only show your cards after you've got a good idea of what's going on.

If you want to have strong political opinions on the internet, don't do it on your actor website. Don't do it on your actor social media. Don't do it when you're representing yourself as a public entity. It's not even for your own sake, but for the sake of the filmmakers who have or will put you in their films. They don't want to be associated with any negativity. If you're that tempted to voice an opinion, create a new social media account or a separate blog and write it under a synonym. After all, you never know who you're trying to impress.
