Bella Thorne got an unexpected chance to voice her opinion on the election when an ex-boyfriend called her live from a podcast interview. After some probing and off-color questions from interviewer Jake Brown, Bella’s ex Jimmy Bennett gave her a ring. While the two haven’t dated since Bella was 14, Bella was pretty friendly with Jimmy and he even got her to discuss her reaction to Donald Trump’s win.
“I don’t really talk about politics. I don’t really get into it much,” Bella says. “Obviously, it wasn’t the best news.” Bella went on to say that she was bummed out by the feeling that prejudice and division played a big part in the election.
“Our world is still really sexist and racist and people–we just aren’t united,” Bella explains. “It’s just really sad to see that the world–everybody says it keeps changing, but yet it’s still staying the same.”
