On Tuesday afternoon, the White House announced the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Many saw the decision as controversial, since the FBI was investigating whether associates of President Trump had colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.
Chris Pratt offered his services to take Comey’s position as he posted a GIF from Parks & Recreation, on which he plays FBI Agent Burt Macklin.
And almost across the board, celebrities reacted with outrage. John Legend simply wrote “Impeach Him.” Rosie O’Donnell continued her Twitter tirade against Trump with this NSFW hashtag rant, “hes naked but he is no emperor #ARRESTDONALDTRUMP #GUILTY#GUILTY #F***UDONALD”
Comedian George Lopez joked, “Well @realDonaldTrump said he was gonna create new jobs!” But fellow comedian Jim Carrey didn’t have time for humor — he was outraged.
