Celebrity Feud? Lloyd Kaufman Shades Tom Hanks And His Pay
Is there a new celebrity feud in the making? Because the ‘Toxic Avenger’ director Lloyd Kaufman just flung a shady tweet at Tom Hanks. The 74-year-old actor-director, who gained specific attention for backing James Gun after his firing, has targeted the Forest Gump star on Twitter. And it appears that the situation may soon escalate into a social-media disaster. On March 12, Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson became the first Hollywood celebrities to test positive for COVID-19. The couple spent weeks in isolation in a hospital in Queensland Australia. Although they have recovered from the deadly virus, Hanks and Wilson continue to attract media attention.
