Quinton Aaron — the man who played Michael Oher in “The Blind Side” — is furious with those clamoring for Sandra Bullock to lose her Oscar over the new Oher drama … telling TMZ Sports the actress has absolutely nothing to do with any of it.
The cry for Bullock to be stripped of the award gained steam on X on Tuesday … with a bunch of users on the app saying following Oher’s claims that Leigh Anne Tuohy lied to him and exploited him — the woman who played her in “The Blind Side” should now face punishment.
Twitter Wants Sandra Bullock to Lose Her ‘The Blind Side’ Oscar After Oher Drama
As crazy as the opinion sounds — the cries grew louder and louder throughout the day … but Aaron told us he hopes all of that dies down quickly.
“To make a statement like that doesn’t make any sense,” Aaron said. “Sandra Bullock didn’t have anything to do with the real story that we’re reading as of right now.”
Of course, Bullock earned the honor back in 2010 … after she played the role of Aaron’s fictitious mom in the 2009 hit flick. And, Aaron says she couldn’t have been more deserving of the praise at the time.
“She gave a brilliant performance,” Aaron said. “And that shouldn’t be tarnished for something that had nothing to do with her.”
Aaron also spoke with us about all of the new allegations surrounding the Tuohys … and while he said he hasn’t talked to them since the movie came out, he didn’t get a vibe that anything nefarious was happening with regards to their relationship with Oher.
“I got a good sense from all of them,” he said. “They were real cool to me.”

Oher’s yet to respond to those claims … but he was adamant in a court filing on Monday that the Tuohys tricked him into getting into a conservatorship that’s cost him potentially millions.
