Leftists angry at Gillian Anderson for taking on Margaret Thatcher role

I looooveeee “The X-Files” – the original series, not the newer reboot that happened a few years ago. Gillian Anderson is a great actress and Dana Scully was an iconic role. She was also fabulous in “The Fall.”

Her next role is playing Margaret Thatcher on the Netflix show “The Crown”, but liberals are not happy with her for being excited to portray Britain’s former Prime Minister.

“I am so excited to be joining the cast and crew of ‘The Crown’ and to have the opportunity to portray such a complicated and controversial woman,” Anderson said via the show’s Twitter account. “Thatcher was undoubtedly formidable, but I am relishing exploring beneath the surface and, dare I say, falling in love with the icon who, whether loved or despised, defined an era.”

Cue the outrage.
