"They're teaching going against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this presidency."

Jon Voight is not taking lightly the public's protests against President Donald Trump and Hollywood's role in them. 

The actor told TMZ the marches have been "very destructive" and called out Miley Cyrus and Shia LaBeouf by name, saying their actions were treasonous.

While Voight admitted that the freedom to protest is what the "First Amendment is all about," he then said that the Women's March on Washington and its sister marches around the world were "against the government and against this President, trying to denigrate his office and his presidency." 

With celebrities like Cyrus and LaBeouf participating in the marches and sharing messages of protest with their fans, Voight says they're teaching "treason."

"They're teaching going against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this presidency," he said. "And it's a very sad day really when I see this."
