(LONDON DAILY MAIL) R Lee Ermey, who played the iconic drill sergeant in ‘Full Metal Jacket,’ claims he was fired by Geico for his vocal opposition to the Obama Administration.
‘Gunny,’ a retired US Marine, starred in a single commercial for the insurance company in 2010 in which he hilariously demonstrated why a former drill instructor makes a terrible psychiatrist.
Not long after the ad debuted, he was forced to apologize after saying President Barack Obama was bringing America to it’s knees and ‘imposing socialism’ during a Toys 4 Tots fundraiser that was broadcast live in the Chicago area.
