In a December 2016 interview with The Hollywood Journalist about the cancelation of his series, Hyde said that he was “presumably as racist or as poisoned as the average regular black guy or the average regular white guy.”

In 2017, he gave $5,000 to Andrew Anglin’s legal defense fund, the author and editor of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer.
