James Woods was dropped by his "liberal" talent agent on the Fourth of July, the actor announced early Thursday.

"It's the 4th of July and I'm feel patriotic," read the purported email from agent Ken Kaplan of The Gersh Agency, which Woods shared on his Twitter account. "I don't want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I'd say."

Woods, an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, tweeted, "So this email from my agent (a political liberal) today..."

Woods subsequently tweeted his response to Kaplan: "My response: “Dear Ken, I don't actually. I was thinking if you're feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one's right to think as an individual. Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf. Be well."

Woods frequently takes to Twitter to voice his support for Trump and his disdain for Barack  Obama. Earlier Wednesday, for example, he shared a New York Times article about affirmative action being reversed, writing, "Rubbing out the last vestiges of the stain that was Obama."
