The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl was an iconic film for children and young adults. The film, released in 2005, stars Taylor Lautner and Taylor Dooley. And while this particular film is incredibly nostalgic for countless viewers around the world, it seems as though some people are starting to think a little differently about Taylor Dooley.
Dooley, who will be starring as Lavagirl in the upcoming Sharkboy and Lavagirl sequel, seems to be a supporter of Donald Trump and fans are not very happy about it.

At first, fans were dwelling on the fact that Taylor Lautner will not be starring in the sequel. Many complained about his character being replaced by someone else and others were wondering why he would turn down the gig. However, Dooley quickly stole the spotlight once some of her tweets reached the masses.
In Dooley’s liked tweets, fans discovered several pro-Trump comments and immediatley began researching to find more. One comment, liked by Dooley on Twitter, said: “Will you please pray for President Trump? He needs us now more than ever.”

Dooley recently liked another tweet in regards to Trump: “This is the man that is fighting for good and fighting for us. We need to continue to pray and fight! 88 day to go.”

During times of racial injustice, Taylor Dooley decided to take a stand and share her support for the black lives matter movement publicly. However, some of her liked tweets supporting and revolving around “back the blue” were quickly discovered. These liked tweets have since disappeared.
It became clear to social media users that these tweets were not liked by accident or as some sort of joke. There are dozens of pro-Trump tweets that have been liked by Dooley. And in addition to the liked tweets, it appears that the actress is also a believer in the QAnon conspiracy theory. This theory revolves around the concept of Trump working to overturn a set of Democratic pedophiles.
She’s literally a trump supporter, what is HAPPENING https://t.co/nCGHOkRS90

Supporters of the QAnon theory also believe that John F. Kennedy is alive although he passed away in 1999.
Many Twitter users were well aware that Dooley was in support of Trump for a while now. However, countless others were not aware. The news quickly spread and many have now called her a “raging Trump supporter.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the film’s director, Robert Rodriguez, opened up about time in quarantine and the reboot inspiration: “A lot of families have spent a lot of time together. I’ve been getting calls from all kinds of studios: ‘Reboot Spy Kids.’ ‘Reboot Sharkboy.’ Of course they want to. They’re all sitting at home with their kids.”
The new film, named We Can Be Heroes, is set for release via Netflix on January 1, 2021.

Countless Trump supporters believe that there is still hope for him to claim the presidency. Regardless of the fact that Joe Biden won fairly, many believe that there was interference and are demanding recounts even weeks after we learned the results.
Eric Bolling, a television anchor in touch with Trump, recently stated: “Trump has always been a never-give-up, against-all-odds guy. That’s what got him elected in 2016 and that’s what MAGA World loves about him. Whether Trump prevails in court or not, putting up a fight was always a given. The fight will guarantee his supporters follow him for whatever comes next—media mogul, political kingmaker or both.”

It became very clear and apparent that Taylor Dooley was a Trump supporter just from social media users looking at her public Twitter account. Many were already disappointed with this sequel because of Taylor Lautner’s absence. However, even more fans are upset to find out that Dooley is in support of Trump.
Whether a representative from Dooley or the film’s team decides to make a public statement, it is beginning to seem as though many are losing interest in this new sequel. The film is nearly two months away from being released. However, there has been countless drama surrounding this announcement ever since it was confirmed.

Many people have decided to unfollow Taylor Dooley on Twitter and other social media platforms. Others believe that she has a right to support Trump or whoever she wants to publicly support and that should not affect her career. But if one thing is for certain, this has been a controversial subject for everyone invested in this iconic film’s sequel.
