Ron Pearlman called Ted Cruise for a wrestling match.

The quarrel between the actor and Cruz, which has been going on Twitter for almost a week, has intensified.

Ron tweeted that he would give $50,000 (£39,000) to Black Lives Matter if the politician came in the ring with him.

His protest came after a Hellboy star tweeted to Congressman Matt Goetz that the U.S. Football Association had reversed its decision to ban players from kneeling while playing the national anthem in protest at police brutality.

He added that he wouldn’t watch anymore, and Pearlman wisely said that the American football team couldn’t care less about what Getz thinks.

Pearlman put another Republican congressman in the situation, Jim Jordan, by tweeting a picture of him and telling Gaetz: You’re lucky to have this guy, Matt. Without him, you’d be the ugliest politician.

Listen, Hellboy. You’re good at makeup and Hollywood stunts. But I bet you 10 bucks on a non-partisan charity of your choice that you won’t survive five minutes in Jim Jordan’s ring if you get caught. Are you ready? Or is your publicist too risky? https://t.co/eRerYVe5kj.

Cruz then came in and noticed that Jordan was a wrestler at the university and said that Jordan and Pearlman had to meet face-to-face – which was strange because no one asked.

They say it’s a good game if you have makeup and Hollywood stuntmen. But I’ll bet you $10,000 at the non-political charity of your choice that you won’t survive five minutes in Jim Jordan’s ring if you get caught. Are you ready? Or is your press officer too risky, he says.

Pearlman said it was just you and me they had to do, he said: I’ll give you $50,000 for Black Lives Matter, and you can keep all the tax money you thought you were spending.

Cruz answered: I get it, you’re rich. But apparently, she’s sweet. You seem afraid to fight Jordan, who keeps insulting you. Can’t you stand the heat? Do you need a manicure?

The actor didn’t have it, so he called Jordan a little dick and added: But you, Teddy, talk about New York every chance you get. My hometown. It’s personal. Let’s go, mofo! [sic].

Demonstrations against the Fresh Black Lives Matter initiative take place across America after the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after white policeman Derek Shawwin knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes.
