“Westworld” star Evan Rachel Wood went on the offense, blasting Steve Bannon after he called Hollywood actors “dumb as ticks.”

Himself a failed screenwriter, former White House Chief Strategist attacked actors, actresses and the NFL on Breitbart’s News Daily radio show on Thursday.

“These actors and actresses, they’re all dumb as ticks and they’re all lazy,” said Bannon. “They’re like pieces of furniture. They’re all dumb as ticks. By the way, that’s why movie attendance is down — people are tired of it. That’s why they’re not watching the National Football League, cutting the cord at ESPN. They’ve politicized everything, and you guys are voting with your feet, which I think is fantastic.”

Wood wasn’t having any of it and went off on Bannon in a series of tweets defending her choice to “speak up” for “those who cannot.” Wood drove her point and tweeted, “We speak up because we can and it would feel selfish not to.” Check out the tweets below.
