Kelsey Grammer’s BBC interview cut short after Donald Trump remarks, host claims

The luminary of “Frasier” expounded upon his political inclinations, specifically aligning himself with the former President, Donald Trump, during a recent dialogue on BBC Radio 4’s “Today” program.

Alluding to actress-comedienne Roseanne Barr, a fellow advocate of Trump, Grammer faced an inquiry from host Justin Webb regarding his current stance on the erstwhile president.

“I maintain my allegiance,” affirmed Grammer. “And let that draw the curtain on the matter.”

However, according to Webb, the curtain hadn’t fallen just yet.

Post-broadcast, the BBC host disclosed that Grammer displayed no reluctance in delving into his endorsement of Trump. Nevertheless, purportedly, public relations representatives from Paramount+ (the platform streaming the “Frasier” revival) opted to truncate the interview. This revelation surfaced in a snippet of Webb’s post-interview remarks disseminated by Mediaite.

“Frankly speaking, Kelsey Grammer was perfectly willing to expound on the topic,” Webb remarked. “The Paramount+ PR team, though, displayed less enthusiasm for the extensive discourse. They deemed our interview sufficiently prolonged. However, it’s imperative to underline that Grammer willingly articulated his reasons for supporting Donald Trump, a commitment that persists into the upcoming election.”

In pursuit of clarification, USA TODAY has initiated communication with the representatives of Grammer and Paramount+.

Grammer resurrected his iconic portrayal of Dr. Frasier Crane when the “Frasier” sitcom underwent a revival in October. Dr. Crane, initially introduced as the preppy and abrasive paramour of Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) in the Season 3 premiere of “Cheers” in September 1984, transformed from a marginal role into an indelible character throughout nine seasons.

“We discerned, from the initial five utterances, that this individual was extraordinary, capable of holding his own amidst the stellar ‘Cheers’ cast,” articulated James Burrows, director of “Frasier” and co-creator of “Cheers,” to USA TODAY in October. “Although Frasier was initially conceived for a brief character arc, after the maiden episode, we were resolute in retaining him. It would have been a dereliction of insight not to recognize his brilliance.”
