Muniz tweeted his disappointment with the pick – even going so far as to urge Americans to “wake up” and realize what the president is doing to the country.
He was later forced to defend his original tweet, replying that Obama is “letting our country down” by nominating Rice.
Naturally, there have been mixed reactions on Twitter about Muniz’s comments. Some people have applauded the actor for taking a stand, while others think he should “go back to obscurity.”
While Muniz has generally steered clear of publicly announcing his political leanings, he had joked on Twitter back in 2011 that he was considering a political run in 2016.
