RIP Tim Allen’s career: All the Buzz Lightyear memes trending on Twitter
Celebrities will always be closely watched – that’s what makes them celebrities. Consequently, they’re significantly scrutinized for their opinions & statements. The internet & Disney said goodbye to Gina Carano not long ago for her politically controversial social media posts.
Who’s next on the chopping block? Buzz Lightyear?! Nope, don’t worry – it’s just the voice behind the space ranger: Tim Allen. Why? Well, in a podcast interview Allen made a comment that created quite a buzz on social media.
Tim Allen Says He 'Liked' That Donald Trump 'Pissed People Off,' Absolutely Rips The Government For Wasting Tax Money https://t.co/boO4fncRc9

Discussing how he disliked “we culture” and being told what to do, Allen, a fiscal conservative, spoke up about his thoughts on former President Donald Trump. “Once I realized that the last president pissed people off, I kind of liked that. So it was fun to just not say anything. Didn’t join in the lynching crowd.”
Oops – that’s a comment bound to be ill-recieved by the mountain of folks who are anti-Trump. Is this political mess getting you down? Well no fear – Buzz Lightyear memes to the rescue! Here are the best Buzz Lightyear memes trending on Twitter to lighten the mood as the next celebrity’s career is burning up.

Chris Evans, to the rescue!
For those unaware, Chris Evans was cast in the role of “the original Buzz Lightyear” in a new Pixar film, Lightyear. The story will follow the life of the person the Toy Story Buzz Lightyear toy was inspired by. We can at least hope Evans will be less controversial than Allen.

Goodbye childhood heroes 👋
Mr. Potato Head, Dr. Seuss, Buzz Lightyear – we can’t deny how sad it is that these childhood figures are being canceled in some manner. (Though, are they really?)

The worst part of wearing a mask is glasses fogging up, am I right? Without a health issue, we can sort of roll our eyes at the rest of the complaints.

Tim Allen, why can’t you just . . . stop. Please.
The best Buzz Lightyear was Patrick Warburton, but y'all aren't ready for THAT conversation. pic.twitter.com/DyfNaWVkqB

Patrick Warburton is underrated!!!
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Patrick Warburton for his fantastic work as a voice actor? His Buzz Lightyear was out of this world! He can replace Tim Allen any day.
Those surprised by Tim Allen being a Trump supporter will be even more shocked that Buzz Lightyear was one of the Capitol insurrectionists pic.twitter.com/nKZdW24A05
