Cleaning the air. David Sutcliffe rejected any involvement in the violent march on the U.S. Capitol, opposing President Donald Trump‘s loss to President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

” There are reports circulating that I ‘stormed the capital’,” Sutcliffe, 51, tweeted on Saturday, January 16, after some fans speculated that he was on-site during the occasion that led to 5 deaths earlier this month. “Not true.”

The Gilmore Girls alum, who played Lorelai’s ( Lauren Graham) ex and Rory’s ( Alexis Bledel) father, likewise retweeted a video of among the participants cigarette smoking weed in the Washington D.C. federal government building, apparently showing his support of the men and females who broke doors and windows to access the building where members of the House and Senate were meeting.

Sutcliffe’s remarks, which came 10 days after demonstrators attacked the Capitol, triggered some fans to turn versus him for supposedly backing the rally.

” No surprise I didn’t like you in Gilmore Women it all makes good sense,” one user commented.

A second individual wrote, “I always liked Luke better,” referencing Scott Patterson‘s character, Luke Danes, on the WB program.

Another user questioned whether the Canadian actor was joking. “People … is it possible he’s kidding? I literally saw this days ago and chuckled and moved on thinking it was a real joke,” the person tweeted. “I seem like he’s sitting in the house laughing … seeing the outrage. If it’s not a joke then … I’m concerned. And unfortunate. And anxious.”

Sutcliffe’s tweets are not the only ones on social networks that fans had a problem with following the demonstration.

After Bachelorette alum James Taylor tweeted about participating in the march on the Capitol, creator Mike Fleiss revealed he was no longer welcome in Bachelor Country.

” Whoever that previous cast member/idiot jerkoff is that went to Trump’s treasonous rally, got a message for ya … You are formally exiled from #BachelorNation!!!” Fleiss, 56, wrote on Twitter earlier this month.

Previous Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay, for her part, called for more change within the franchise after seeing that Taylor, 33, was in Washington D.C.

” Reason #4853569536 we need to do much better with casting,” the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast, 35, host replied to Fleiss.

Taylor, who competed on JoJo Fletcher‘s season of the dating series, formerly declared to have support from ABC and Bachelor Country after the rally.

” Huge thanks to #TheBachelor household for supporting me throughout this time … from top to bottom,” he tweeted on January11 “Conservative producers are the best!!”

He included: “Thank you @ABCNetwork @ABC & @BachelorABC for having my back while I legally supported our President.”

A source, however, informed United States Weekly that Taylor’s claims of support from the network are “unequivocally false.”
