Disney World guest who heckled Donald Trump's robot says haters need to 'check their privilege'

Jay Malsky, the man who recently chanted "Lock him up" at the Donald Trump robot at Disney World's Hall of Presidents, says that anyone upset with his outburst needs to "check their privilege."

The actor and comedian recently spoke to The Wrap, and cited Trump's stance on DACA, the LGBTQ community and his trillion dollar tax bill as reasons people need to chill.

"Anyone that’s upset I disrupted a family vacation can check their privilege and consider getting mad about the thousands of children being taken away from their parents because of Trump’s racist immigration policies, or the families of the hundreds of trans Americans murdered each year by transphobic and homophobic people, or the negative impacts of the tax bill on poor and middle-income Americans," said Malsky to the Wrap. "My only regret us that Trump hasn’t blocked me on Twitter yet. And that Cher hasn’t retweeted me yet."

Malksy also told the site that he appreciated the Disney castmembers who escorted him out of the attraction, "They could not have been more professional and courteous" he added.
