To all the potential “out of shape” Donald Trump supporters looking to be cast in the next John Legend video, you’re out of luck.

The “Love Me Now” singer confirmed on Twitter Monday, Aug. 4 that while he is gearing up to shoot a political clip, he isn’t looking to represent that segment of the population.

The listing, obtained by TMZ Sunday from Casting Networks in Los Angeles, seeks white men and white women ages 30-65 who are “preferably out of shape” to play eight Trump supporters at a rally. It also wanted to cast 18-35-year-old white men to play “white, male protesters,” Could a take on the Charlottesville, Va., white supremacist rally have been part of the vision?

Black Lives Matter is also set to be included in the video in the form of 18-35-year-old Black men and women. Plus, Hispanic and white women ages 18-45 are needed for a kissing scene to show “there is no segregation in love. But just two human beings of any race or color.”

Legend, a supporter of Black Lives Matter and the LGBT community, told The Guardian earlier this month that Trump “is an embarrassment to the country.”

“When he is criticizing something, he is usually projecting,” Legend went on of the president. “So, he calls people liars because he is a liar. He talks about the entertainment business because he rose through the entertainment business. He talks about people being corrupt because he is corrupt. He talks about people being violent because he encourages violence.

“So, he’s usually projecting when he criticizes someone.”
