The flurry of comments on Tim Allen’s tweet
Tim Allen, who considers himself a member of the relatively small “Conservative Hollywood” club, seems to anticipate such an appearance. The next day, he posted a new joke on Twitter.
“Biden was on 60 Minutes,” Allen tweeted. “I heard he asked how long the show was.” The internet is collectively groaning. Allen’s post instantly went viral, thanks in large part to his detractors.
There was a time when you were funny.
Just kidding, you were never funny unless you think Scott Baio is funny.

Fun fact: Tim Allen was arrested with a pound and a half of cocaine, then reported his dealers to get a reduced sentence.

I hope they make a Toy Story 5.
This way, a whole new generation of people will know you exist solely because you voice a comic book astronaut who plays perpetual second fiddle to @tomhanks.

Tim Allen may have to face the consequences
Some Twitter users pointed out that Republican President Donald Trump once rushed into a 60 Minutes interview, with some accounts claiming he “assaulted” all. Others accused Allen of being “disrespectful” to the current president.
“And that, children, is why Tim Allen is no longer the voice of Buzz Lightyear”, someone else wrote in a tweet. “He is completely Scott Baio. Or is it Kevin Sorbo? Meh, what’s the difference.
Many conservatives and Allen fans were outraged in June when Captain America Actor Chris Evans starred as Buzz Lightyear in the character’s latest origin film. Everybody loves Raymond actress Patricia Heaton clapped Light year directors and claimed to have “castrated” the role by not casting Allen.
