Levente Molnár voiced his support for the protests since the their outbreak.
„There is no black or white. There is common sense. There are limits. This goes beyond that. So see you tonight in the square. I would feel the same if these things were done by any other political party,” actor Levente Molnar was posting on Facebook on February 2.
