Tim Allen is one of the few and outspoken conservatives in Hollywood.
He has paid the price before for his political views, and it now appears as though he has paid again.
In a new “Toy Story” spinoff, Allen will NOT be playing the iconic character of Buzz Lightyear.
The “Toy Story” franchise was a favorite among children and adults alike.
While the movie was meant to showcase Tom Hanks, Tim Allen brought Buzz Lightyear to life and the character quickly became a favorite.
Sadly, that will no longer be the case.
Disney is about to do a spinoff called “Lightyear” to give the backstory of Buzz Lightyear.
Allen has been the voice of Buzz Lightyear since the character’s inception, but the role now goes over to Chris Evans.
In this political environment, one cannot help but wonder if Allen was ditched for liberal mouthpiece Chris Evans.
The tweet below is typical of what was seen by liberal fans who back the switch…
So glad Tim Allen isn't voicing Buzz Lightyear. His political beliefs will negatively influence children who watch the film and he sounds like he's 90-years-old anyways. Sorry, not sorry. Chris Evans is the perfect fit. #buzzlightyear

Fox News reported that Allen was never even in the running for the backstory movie.
We obviously cannot say for sure what was behind the motivation to change out the voice of one of the most iconic animated figures in the Disney catalog, but it sure smells rotten from where I am sitting.
