It’s tough out there for a Republican actor, according to Tim Allen.

The actor and comedian appeared on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Friday night and made some remarks that probably won’t sit well with most of liberal Hollywood.

“You gotta be real careful around here, you know. You’ll get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” he told Kimmel.

“This is like ’30s Germany,” he said. “I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group: ‘You know what we believe is right.’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.'”

Allen was invited to the Veterans Ball in Washington, D.C., and also attended the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

He joked that the parade following the inauguration was not what he anticipated.

“It looks like a Cadillac parade. It was just rows of Cadillacs. And my kids were like, ‘Is this a parade?'” he said. “There was no marching bands.”

Allen also said he has some concerns about government surveillance.

“One day I was thinking, if the government drove down the street in a gray sedan with a camera on it, you would be rioting and going to Washington,” he started. “But it’s white with emojis with Google on it, you are waving at it. They are taking pictures of your house!”

Shields and Streetheart charted during the 1970s and 1980s with hits like “Action,” “Hollywood,” “Here Comes the Night,” and a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Under My Thumb.”

The group’s last album was 2008’s “The Hits/Anthology.” The band had planned a cross-country tour this year to celebrate its 40th anniversary, but scrapped the plan when Shields became ill earlier this month.

Shields’ wife and daughter were with him when he died around 3 a.m., according to close friend and bandmate Jeff Neill.

“The ones that he loved were by his side and he wasn’t in pain,” Neill told CBC News. “And he just slipped away.”

It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce that our dear friend and bandmate Kenny Shields has passed away...

Madame Tussauds said in a statement Wednesday that the appearance of the figure was because of lighting and flash photography.

“At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted,” the statement said. “Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures, which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.”

On Friday, Entertainment Weekly reported that the museum restyled the figure after accusations that the first one was whitewashed.

“We love, respect and enjoy a working relationship with Beyonce,” Madame Tussauds said in a statement. “We have adjusted the styling and the lighting of her figure and she is on display at Madame Tussauds New York.”

TMZ reported that the figure appears to have a darker skin tone than its previous iteration.
