Don Cheadle has shown his real face on Twitter. The actor, one of Hollywood’s favorite sons, couldn’t help himself when U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley criticized him and his fellow “stars” on Twitter for politicizing the Grammys.

Cheadle’s response tells us all we need to know about his attitude toward women who dare disagree with his politics:

Although he undoubtedly thought his followers would appreciate the insults to Haley, the opposite was the case. Many Twitter users accused Cheadle of being a sexist.

The most remarkable aspect of Cheadle’s tweet is, of course, that the entire Left would have united against him if Haley was a liberal and Cheadle was a conservative. His fellow Hollywood stars would have come out accusing him of being sexist, and of “mansplaining” politics to Haley. But because he (the aggressor) is the liberal and Haley (the victim) is the conservative, the only ones criticizing him are normal Twitter users, not other actors or singers.
