    BBC reporter Justin Webb said that his interview with Kelsey Grammer was cut short by Paramount+ representatives when their conversation turned to Grammer's support of current Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    During the 68-year-old actor's appearance on the "Today" program on BBC Radio 4, Grammer said the inspiration behind the network's "Frasier" reboot came from the success Roseanne Barr found with the 2018 "Roseanne" reboot, a show later rebranded as "The Connors," killing off Barr after she posted controversial tweets, Entertainment Weekly reported.

    "You mentioned Roseanne early on, who had a great comeback but also was a Trump supporter," Webb asked the actor. "You were, at least you were, a Trump supporter. I'm fascinated to know if you still are?"

    "I am," Grammer said. "And I'll let that be the end of it."

    After the segment, Webb told his co-host that "Kelsey Grammer himself was perfectly happy to go on talking about it [his support of Trump]. The Paramount+ PR people, less happy that he talked about it at some length."

    Webb's co-host suggested the network wouldn't be happy with this revelation, and he replied, "They decided that we'd had plenty of time for our interview. But I should stress that he was absolutely perfectly happy to talk about why he supports Donald Trump and still does in the coming election."

    In a 2019 BBC interview, Grammer praised then-President Donald Trump.

    "We've witnessed in American politics the same basic language since Ronald Reagan has been attached to every conservative president," the TV star said. "But this is the first guy that ever kind of fires back and so it's really unpleasant and they thought, of course, he shouldn't be elected anyway."


    Kelsey recently reprised his role as the lovable Dr. Frasier Crane, a radio psychiatrist on the reboot series that hit Paramount+ in October. The original NBC sitcom ran for 11 seasons and scored dozens of Emmy awards.

    Grammer previously said he's "thrilled" with the reboot, saying he's "excited to play Frasier again," People magazine noted.

    "We've been working on it honestly for about six or seven years," Grammer said. "It's been on the slow burner. We were like, this is not a bad idea. Maybe this is a good idea!"
