Scott Baio Mocked For Nordstrom Boycott
Scott Baio is getting mocked by some of his fellow celebrities for boycotting Nordstrom. See reaction from other Hollywood stars below.
As Gossip Cop has reported, Nordstrom recently announced it will no longer carry Ivanka Trump’s line. Although the company has insisted, more than once, that the decision was made due to poor sales for the collection, others have accused the store of cutting ties due to politics and Donald Trump’s presidency. Subsequently, President Trump slammed Nordstrom, and Kellyanne Conway said to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”
Most recently, on Saturday, Trump supporter Baio revealed he’s boycotting the high-end retailer. On Twitter, he posted a photo of his wife’s billing statement for the department store’s credit card, highlighting that they’ve spent more than $30,000 in purchases. He wrote with the picture, “Dear @Nordstrom NEVER AGAIN! @IvankaTrump @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @MrsScottBaio.”
A few other stars are quite amused by the “Charles In Charge” star’s protest. Taran Killam joked, “Why didn’t Scott Baio want to shop @Nordstrom’s? Because they wouldn’t let him Charles in CHARGE it.” Andy Cohen sarcastically cracked, “OMG Nordstrom is FINISHED!”
Bethenny Frankel also quipped, “I guess @Nordstrom won’t be selling CHACHtkes anymore,” referencing Baio’s “Happy Days” Chachi character. She added, “Meanwhile greatest press for the retailer ever.” And Trevor Noah joked, “That sucks for Nordstrom now they have to find another cashier.”
Meanwhile, one Twitter user even wrote to Baio, “Hey Mr. Ego who cares our boycotts will destroy the Trump brand quickly then remove the dictator you washed up peice of sh*t.” The actor replied, “You’re .01% of the population. Shut up. P-I-E in ‘Piece,’ genius!” Gossip Cop will update if more stars weigh in.
