Hollywood actor Wendell Pierce, most known for starring in HBO’s “The Wire” and “Confirmation” series, is making headlines this weekend after allegedly attacking a Bernie Sanders supporter.
Details of the politically-charged incident surfaced online early Sunday (May 15).
Sources at the Loews Hotel in Atlanta tell us the actor struck up a convo with the woman and her boyfriend at around 3:30 AM. The talk turned political and Wendell — a big Hillary Clinton supporter — got upset when the woman declared her support for Bernie. We’re told Wendell — who played Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in the HBO drama, “Confirmation” — became enraged, pushed the boyfriend and then went after his girlfriend … grabbing her hair and smacking her in the head.

A few weeks ago, R&B singer Jhené Aiko displayed her loyalty to Sanders.
Radio veteran Charlamagne Tha God hosted a Bernie panel last month in New York City.
Hustle Gang leader T.I. showed off his support for Sanders back in March.
