The Terminator has set his eyes on a new foe. When the former governor and actor found out that the 102-year-old Thelma Smith was being ousted from her California home of almost 30 years by her landlord, he took action.
Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted out his support of Smith, writing: “Thelma has been a dear friend for a long time. Imagine doing this to a 102-year-old woman who gave back to the community her whole life. It is heartless.”
Smith, a retired secretary for the Sugar Ray Robinson Youth Foundation, is reportedly being forced out to make way for the landlord’s daughter.
“Thelma, I’ll be reaching out to help. Landlords, you’ll hear from me too,” he wrote in the tweet.
Schwarzenegger reportedly reached out to Smith to help her find a solution. Smith has lost much of her family, including her husband. She reportedly has limited options and may have to move into an assisted living facility, which is difficult on her fixed income. She has been given until June 30 to leave.
