Just ask the latest celebrity who has been put on notice.

Antonio Sabato Jr., who has appeared in movies, television shows, daytime dramas, and reality TV feats the likes of “The Big Hit,” “Charmed,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and “Dancing with the Stars,” just revealed that he has been blacklisted in Hollywood because of his backing of Trump.
