Actor James Woods shared Thursday that his agent dropped him as a client because he was “feeling patriotic” on Independence Day.

Woods tweeted a message from his agent, Ken Kaplan, in which Kaplan said he no longer wanted to represent the actor. 

“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic. I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say,” Kaplan wrote. 

Woods said that Kaplan is a “political liberal,” though the agent’s message did not explicitly state the decision was based on politics.

In a separate tweet, Woods thanked his agent and expressed some surprise at the decision.
