Detroit Native Jack White Calls Celebs Who Embraced Trump At Martial Arts Event 'Disgusting'

We may anticipate seeing more of these social media postings as the 2024 election draws closer and sentiments intensify.

A celebrity who was seen conversing with Donald Trump on Saturday night at the Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial arts event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas was assaulted on Monday by rock singer Jack White, a native of Detroit. According to NBC, these celebrities included the chef Guy Fieri, the actors Mel Gibson and Mark Wahlberg, the podcaster Joe Rogan, and Trump confidant and buddy Roger Stone.

Cass Tech High School in Detroit alumnus White, 48, wrote on Instagram:

Anyone who "normalizes" or shows any respect for this revolting fascist, racist, con guy, or filthy piece of garbage Trump is also horrible in my eyes. You are Mel Gibson, Joe Rogan, Mark Wahlberg, and Guy Fieri. This is not a discussion or debate; it is a statement from me. J. White III

In the 2020 elections, White supported Sen. Bernie Sanders.

These days, Nashville is where White spends most of his time. In Kalamazoo, he also hosts a writing retreat.
