I don’t think posting anybody’s number on social media is okay. But we had an agreement after we realized we were a little bit politically different. We had an agreement that, first and foremost, you’re a human being. And you’re my friend first.

I know that we both have misstepped on our tweets. We’re not perfect. We’re human beings. But he’s not a bad human being. He’s a sweet person.

They accidentally sent me an email, which was very enlightening, so I knew. I knew they were paying attention. I know there were some people who went to bat for me, but I know that they didn’t win out at the end. They’ve been all over me and they’ve been watching me like a hawk. And I’m watching other people on the same production, and they can say everything they want, and that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem because I wasn’t going along with the narrative.
