Being a celebrity may come with a lot of perks, but it does not save you from what some may consider karma, or just unfortunate realities of our mortality. In this case, given this actor’s feelings about the president, some may feel that he had it coming as the “Trump curse” after publicly ripping the president for his personal gain. It seems that horrible things keep happening, one by one, to each person with something bad to say about Trump, and this is another horrific example of that.
Will Ferrell is typically as funny as they come, but like many of his comedic counterparts, lost his humor when he turned it on President Trump. He’s best known for his box office comedy hits like Anchorman, Elf, and Old School, just to name a few. Recently, all of his public appearances and interviews have included subtle and not so subtle jabs at Trump, considering that seems to be the trend in Hollywood.
Now, perhaps that’s come back to bite him.
Will Ferrell was reportedly taken to the hospital after the actor was involved in a car accident.
Ferrell, 50, was riding in an SUV that flipped over during a two-car accident on Thursday night in California, reports TMZ.
The car was reportedly driving down an Orange County freeway late Thursday night when it was side-swiped by another car. According to TMZ, Ferrell was one of three passengers in the car.
All three passengers were taken to the hospital.
Ferrell’s injuries are unknown, but the actor was seen talking on a cellphone as he was loaded into an ambulance.
Ferrell was on his way back from a Funny or Die event where he appeared as his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy.
Lad Bible added that “Ferrell was seen speaking on his phone as he was loaded into an ambulance, however a woman he was in the car with was believed to be in a worse condition.”
According to Fox 8 News, “The crash happened around 11 p.m. in Orange County when Ferrell’s chauffeur-driven SUV flipped after being sideswiped. Two other passengers were in the vehicle; they were also rushed to the hospital.”
We certainly hope that everyone heals quickly and recovers from this terrifying incident that could have been fatal. For that reason, Ferrill is lucky that he wasn’t hurt worse. Surviving an incident like this puts a lot into perspective and perhaps one of those things is that he realizes that he was funnier when he focused on being genuinely funny, rather than trying to gt a laugh and reaction from material aimed at attacking our president. That song and dance is simply tired and it’s time to move on.
