Tom Selleck Controversy Takes Over Twitter, And It’s A Hot Mess

Tom Selleck, a Showbiz and television icon, does not require a motive to become a social media sensation. Some admirers, it appears, simply want to take the time to tweet about Selleck’s magnificence. If you’ve been on Twitter lately, you’ve probably spotted that Blue Bloods icon Tom Selleck is entangled in an odd dispute after a comment about him began circulating.

Selleck began trending this afternoon and is currently ranked No. 10 on Twitter’s trending list. We honestly have no idea what triggered this event. But we’re going to make the best of it. What is strange is that we aren’t talking about a single controversy here, but rather a series of controversial elements that Tom had in his life. Ignoring the fact that the debate looked to be largely based on disinformation, some people have chimed in. Dial 911, Reno! Even actor Thomas Lennon has weighed in on the subject with a funny remark. 

How it all started

Recently, the entire Selleck issue has captivated Twitter. What appears to have started it all was a C.S. Lewis fan account sharing a link to a Belief Net article about the actor’s spirituality. According to the report, Selleck attributes all of his achievements to Jesus Christ.

Things immediately spiraled out of control as fans began to comment on the tweet. The topic was reignited when some people brought up Selleck’s presence in reverse mortgage loan advertising. A few hours later, Selleck became a hot topic on Twitter, with individuals of many faiths and social and political views slamming his advertising for reverse mortgages. In a widely circulated report, Business Insider explains how reverse mortgages are rarely beneficial and how they are generally fraudulently marketed to the elderly They claim Selleck should not be endorsing the commercials because they are destructive and immoral.

“Tom Selleck is a  horrible rotten person. one Twitter user stated, “He’s being paid to push reverse mortgages so elders will eventually lose their houses.” “Common sense dictates that as you become older, you make less money and become less mobile. When you leave your house, how will you repay these loans?” Many conservative analysts were quick to view Selleck’s retaliation as a political attack as the day progressed. “THIS is why leftists are hating on Tom Selleck today,” said Ann Coulter, re-posting the Belief Net link. The reverse mortgage uproar was not partisan. But many of Coulter’s supporters believed her, and heated debates began to stack up in the comments. Due to Selleck’s personal conservatism, Coulter’s over-simplification may have acquired momentum.

People also dragged in a controversy related to Trump

A report that Tom Selleck backed Donald Trump in the 2016 election sparked outrage among Twitter users. While many people talked about it, it turned out to be untrue. In 2016, the veteran actor remarked on The View that he punched in his vote because he had troubles with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It was supposed that he voted for Trump because of his conservative views. It was also reported that he applauded the President in an interview with Breitbart, but it turned out that it was Jon Voight (Ray Donovan) who said so. Some have claimed that Tom Selleck has never endorsed Donald Trump.

Why do Fans Say Tom Selleck is pro-trump?

The 76-year-old actor has already been chastised for his apparent pro-Trump political views. A few similar arguments have been made in the old days about the Magnum P.I. star.

The allegations regarding Tom’s purported Trump-backing began a few years ago when a blog reported that the actor praised Trump in a 2016 interview with Breitbart News.

How has he been doing?

It was revealed in a 2020 interview that Tom had given up his Hollywood lifestyle to live on his family’s California ranch. According to the actor, he is a very private person. Work-life balance is something I’ve always valued, as well as the opportunity to spend time with my family. You can never get away from them. He spends his free time at home with his wife of 33 years, Jillie Mack, while he’s not filming Blue Bloods for CBS in New York City.
