“American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis wants to know whether Hollywood has officially gone “f-g nuts” over the election of President Trump.

Mr. Ellis said that more than a year of fending off Hollywood friends and acquaintances over their reaction to Mr. Trump has prompted him to swear off political talk, though he took to Twitter on Monday to lament the reactions he’s elicited by defending “the American voter.”

“Not having political discussions with anyone anymore. Done. Too much insanity. Another dinner ruined. People are f-g crazy. Get a grip,” the author began a series of tweets.

“Another dinner with the Hollywood liberal establishment defending HRC, fake news, intersectionality, identity politics, PC virtue signaling,” Mr. Ellis continued. “Defending the American voter I’m yelled at in Sunset Tower for being a Trump apologist and colluding with Russia. Is the Left f-g NUTS?”

The author, who also helms a popular podcast, made a prescient broadcast in March when he told listeners that activists have an unhealthy obsession with Russian conspiracy theories.

“You can dislike the fact that Trump was elected, yes, definitely, and yet still understand and accept ultimately that he was elected this time around,” Mr. Ellissaid March 27. “Or you can have a complete mental and emotional collapse and let the Trump presidency define you, which I think is absurd.”

“I cannot count the times my boyfriend has left the house since the election — his hair long and tousled — he hasn’t shaved in months, and he’s addicted to three things besides opiates: Russian conspiracies discussed on Reddit, Rachel Maddow detailing Russian conspiracies, and Final Fantasy 15.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director, is overseeing an ongoing investigation of Russia’s meddling into the 2016 election.
