She used her Twitter account to ask "Who is this man? Why is he using such abusive language against the #filmindustry? and more important why is such obscene language allowed on mainstream television?"

Replying to one of her followers, she said "Imagine, people like him are leaders".

"I am embarrassed FOR this man. I mean, how do you just sit there and make such statements without realising the wider ramifications. It chills me to the bone. I mean is he educated? What background does he come from? In the UK, he wouldn’t be allowed anywhere near public office," she said in another tweet.
