Bruce Campbell Takes On Trump Supporters For Using This ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ ‘Make-Up Test’ As Twitter Propaganda

The final three episodes of Ash vs. Evil Dead‘s first spectacular season featured Australian actress (and Hugo Weaving’s niece) Samara Weaving, who played a backpacker named “Heather” who stumbles across the original cabin from the Evil Dead film series. Unlike her fellow backpackers, however, Heather survived all the way through “Ashes to Ashes” and “Bound in Flesh” until, just before the finale’s final battle, she succumbed to the horrific homestead’s more devilish aspects. She did put up a hell of a good fight, though, and even scored a few shots and lines of dialogue in the trailer Starz dropped before the finale aired in January.

Why is any of this relevant to the above photo of a shouty Donald Trump and an even shoutier Ashley “Ash” J. Williams, as played by Bruce Campbell? Because @Cons_Nation, a conservative Twitter account that regularly posts political images and memes, tried to pass off one of the show’s makeup tests as a “female Trump supporter” who’d been attacked by “‘peaceful’ and ‘tolerant’ liberals” on Monday. The following day, Campbell called out the tweet for its bullsh*t.

Here’s the misappropriated image:
