Arnold Schwarzenegger shuts down anti-gay Twitter follower with a signature line: ‘Hasta la vista’

Arnold Schwarzenegger had a short but sweet response to one of his 3.38 million Twitter followers who took issue with The Terminator star altering his profile pic to reflect LGBTI pride.

‘What’s wrong with you Arnie?’ the follower asked. ‘I have to unlike.’

Schwarzenegger replied with one of his signature movie lines: ‘Hasta la vista.’

The actor and former California governor was one of 26 million people who used a rainbow filter to his profile image after the US Supreme Court voted 5-4 to make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.

But Schwarzenegger was not always so supportive of marriage equality.

During his terms as governor of California from 2003-11, Schwarzenegger twice vetoed bills that had passed both houses of the state legislature and would have made same-sex marriage legal.

Instead, the battle was fought in the courts with marriages becoming legal for a brief legal window until voters passed the Proposition 8 ban. In 2013, the US Supreme Court upheld the overturning of the ban and same-sex marriages resumed.

Schwarzenegger is now acting again full-time with his latest film, Terminator Genisys, out next month.

One Remark

  1. Don’t you mean Arnold Scharzenegger media consultant shuts down anti gay twitter follower??? We all know Arnold ran California as a social conservative against LGBT rights.
