TV Star Goes Rogue & Turns Press Tour Into Political Tirade Against Boris Johnson

Actor Dan Stevens seemingly went off-script when he appeared on the Uk chat show The One Show.

Steven’s managed to turn an explanation on his new television show, Gaslit into an attack on British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Steven’s new show Gaslit is all about the watergate political scandal that saw President Nixon resign.

So when Steven was asked to explain his new show, he said: “You’ve got is a criminal for a leader who is wrapped in a messy war, embroiled in a stupid scandal and surrounded by ambitious idiots and really should resign.”

Then he looked at the camera, and did his best-confused face, before he said: “No, I’m sorry, that’s the intro to Boris Johnson.”

Zinger.

The host clearly didn’t know what to do and you could hear people’s surprise from backstage – like actual gasps.

Naturally, Steven’s bold move is now going viral on Twitter, particularly because The One Show is aired on The BBC a network that aims to be impartial when it comes to politics.

Still, it’s always interesting to see a star take a stand.
