A joke that Tim Allen made about President Joe Biden has gone viral.


Following Biden’s appearance on the CBS television magazine show “60 Minutes,” the 69-year-old actor tweeted on Monday.


“On 60 Minutes, Biden appeared. I overheard him inquire about the show’s duration “Allen composed.


The “Home Improvement” star’s joke soon ignited debate, and many of Allen’s detractors attacked him in the comments.




While some Twitter users mocked the joke as “unfunny” and “lame,” others accused the comic of being “disrespectful” to the present president.


The “Toy Story” star seemed “irrelevant” and “washed up,” according to online critics.




One detractor wrote on Twitter, “I think the funniest thing Tim Allen has done in the last 20 years is assume that he’s still in any way relevant.”


Due to remarks like the one he made on Monday, a few Twitter users believed that Allen had been replaced as Buzz Lightyear in the most recent episode of the immensely popular “Toy Story” franchise.


And this, kiddies, is why Tim Allen isn’t still Buzz Lightyear’s voice, as stated by one user on social media.


Allen had voiced the recognisable animated character in each of the first four “Toy Story” movies, but Chris Evans took over for “Lightyear” in 2022.


Fans of Allen and a few of his business associates criticised the casting change.


Patricia Heaton, a former cast member of “Everybody Loves Raymond,” criticised the decision, stating on Twitter, “I saw the teaser for Buzz Lightyear and all I can say is Disney/Pixar made a HUGE mistake in not putting my mate Tim Allen in the role that he originated, the job that he owns.


Buzz IS Tim! Why would they castrate this famous, adored character entirely?


Tom Hanks, Allen’s longtime “Toy Story” co-star, said he “didn’t comprehend” the character’s recasting in a statement to CinemaBlend.


The “Last Man Standing” actor claimed that he made the decision to “keep out” of the Pixar prequel since it “had nothing to do” with the character he played in that film, Buzz Lightyear.


While this was going on, several detractors of Allen’s most recent tweet brought up his 1978 narcotics trafficking arrest. After being discovered in possession of more than a pound of cocaine at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport in Michigan, Allen spent over two and a half years in federal prison.


According to Time magazine, he made a deal in which he agreed to give the identities of other drug dealers in exchange for avoiding a potential life sentence.


During an interview with the podcast “WTF with Marc Maron” in 2021, Allen discussed his arrest and time spent in jail.




He said, “I was an eff-up.” He continued by saying that he had grown up drinking alcohol and that after his father was killed in a vehicle accident, his drug use drastically worsened.


Allen claimed that after leaving prison, he was determined to make amends in his life. He has maintained his sobriety for more than 20 years.


After his Tweet caused a stir, a number of Allen’s followers defended him. Many Twitter users emphasised how innocent the joke was.



… Twitter is attempting to ban Tim Allen of the comedy Dad for making a dad joke?

… soft as butter, “Tweeted one user.


The star of “The Santa Clause” has not yet responded to the Twitter squabble in the media.
