“Breaking Bad” star Dean Norris got slammed for his tone-deafness after he mocked Americans complaining about gas prices.

Norris became famous for his role as Drug Enforcement Administration agent Hank Schrader in “Breaking Badand the spin-off series “Better Call Saul.”

But on Wednesday, he angered plenty of people by tweeting, Youre [sic] not getting ‘robbed’ at the pump. You’re paying fair market price for a commodity. If you love Capitalism so much then stfu.”

Norris’ foul language and his disdain for conservatives should not come as a surprise. In May, he targeted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) with bellicose rhetoric, snapping, “There are responsible citizens who own guns for hunting, sport or self defense. Then there are limp dicks like @tedcruz who fetishize firearms to make up for their shriveled balls. Can’t even defend his own wife when Trump calls her an ugly cow.”

As far back as 2017, Norris was denigrating former Republican President Ronald Reagan and then-President Donald Trump. As Newsweek noted, he told the British newspaper The Independent:

He [Reagan] was the first Trump, from my perspective. People that voted Democrat all their lives, and then all of a sudden came the idea that Democrats were kind of p*****s, and Reagan became like, a man. The working class, which for economic reasons alone should be the constituents of the Democratic Party, became the constituents of the Republican Party. And we literally now have a man who lives in a golden tower speaking for blue-collar workers.

Norris’ comment about gas prices set some people off.

Federalist columnist David Harsanyi wrote, “It’s not a fair-market price if government purposely creates scarcity to drive up the price.”

Other comments:

Easy for someone as loaded as you to say. Prices were fine a few months ago. Restriction of capitalism is what put us here.

Dude just act and leave real life problems to the people who understand that stuff.

How is closing pipelines the free market? How is buying from a dictatorship when you were energy independent previously, the free market? Stick to acting.

I love breaking bad [sic], but a millionaire actor from Hollywood worth 5 million can’t be telling hard working Americans who live paycheck by paycheck to just suck it up when you specifically benefit from capitalism. Please just stick to acting my guy.
