Hollywood is forgiving of all sorts of crimes, perversion, and abhorrent behavior among actors and actresses seeking redemption.

But the one usually unpardonable sins in Hollyweird is either coming out of the closet as a conservative or a Republican, or — worse yet — actually getting involved in politics and using their platform to endorse any politician who is not an America-hating and freedom-hating Communist, like Obama, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

Pawn Stars‘ Rick Harrison committed the latter unforgivable sin, endorsing Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio publicly and early, and says that now he’s paying the price for endorsing a Republican.

In an exclusive interview with CNN interview on Friday, Harrison says that his business has suffered since his endorsement of Marco Rubio, and that he’s definitely felt the discrimination from the leftists in Hollywood, even missing out on some endorsement deals.

“I suddenly became famous and I was the one willing to throw my career away to endorse a Republican,” Harrison told CNN. “When you do commercials and endorsements and you endorse a Republican, everyone sort of frowns on you,” he explained.

When asked whether he worries that he could even lose his business, Harrison said that, “It does worry me to a degree.”

Harrison went on to tell CNN that political correctness has “gone over the top,” and that liberals continue to try to perfect society by passing more laws, without fully thinking through the unintended consequences of their actions.

“You get these massive liberal PC police, they don’t see the law of unintended consequences. You have some cities that are saying that if you have a man who feels like he’s a woman, he can use the women’s restroom. I guarantee you that will be taken advantage of by some very bad men who want to go into a bathroom where there’s young ladies. That will happen if you pass a law like that. It’s not a perfect world. You’ll never make it a perfect world.”

The reality TV star of the hit History Channel show also took a shot at Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, saying that it takes more to be the next president than just being Bill Clinton’s wife and that she actually hasn’t accomplished much of anything in all her years in politics.

“The thing is, just because you’re Bill Clinton’s wife, doesn’t mean you’re going to be a great president. You have to have done something,” Harrison asserted.
