Twitter supports Angelina
Meanwhile, Twitter immediately reacted to John Voight’s social media post, with many showing support for Angelina Jolie. Several brought up the beef between the father and daughter in the past years, with many of them backing the Maleficent star.
“Angelina Jolie deserved far better for a father than Jon Voight. Jon Voight never deserved a beautiful soul like her as his daughter. Angelina is on the right side of history…Jon is on the wrong side forever,” Chrissi Nielsen wrote.
“Angelina Jolie and Jon Voight are trending right next to each other. I think that’s the closest they’ve been in years,” Alexander McKinley added.
“Every time Jon Voight turns up to say something embarrassing and fascistic, it reminds everyone of why his daughter, Angelina Jolie, is estranged from him and has dedicated herself to humanitarian causes for women and children,” journalist Victoria Brown tweeted.
Another user revisited how Voight said his daughter was crazy in the past and convinced the media that it was true.
Jolie and Voight’s history
Angelina Jolie and John Voight weren’t very close when she grew up. In fact, several tabloids have taken advantage of the drama between the father and daughter in the past years.
Also, in 2012, Jolie cut off her communication with her dad. Jolie explained that she decided not to be in contact with her father because of their “bad relationship.”
“After all these years, I have determined that it is not healthy for me to be around my father, especially now that I am responsible for my own child,” Jolie said in the past.
But things have already gone better between the father and daughter. Jon Voight was there for Jolie after she separated from her ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2016.
Jolie said in a previous interview post, Brad Pitt split that Voight looked after her kids whenever she had to attend therapy meetings. She mentioned giving him tips to be a cool grandfather by being creative as he hangs out and tells her kids stories.
