Hollywood stars and other entertainment figures applauded what they hope will be former President Donald Trump’s final act on the national stage.
“Let 2023 be the year of accountability,” tweeted George Takei of “Star Trek” fame. “Happy indictment day, to those who celebrate.”
“Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill mocked the all-caps malapropism in the denial Trump posted to his Truth Social platform.
“The Thugs and Radical Left Monsters have just INDICATED the 45th President of the United States of America,” Trump’s post read in part.
Hamill tweeted, “Has he ever INDICATED whether or not he employs a proofreader?”
Comedian Kathy Griffin, who tweeted a notorious fake image of a beheaded Trump in 2017, crowed over the indictment.
“It’s finally happening,” she tweeted Thursday.
Horror maestro Stephen King took a somber tone.
“Wise up, Republicans. Don’t believe the lies,” the author tweeted to his over 7 million followers. “This isn’t political. Donald Trump did this to himself. He betrayed your trust.”
Frequent Trump critic Alyssa Milano also had a stern attitude.
“Although accountability is vitally important and no one is above the law — this is a really sad day for The United States Of America,” she wrote on Twitter.
Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner gleefully tweeted, “Trump Indicted! First among many!”
Trump’s Tinseltown supporters also took to Twitter.
“Nothing will come of it,” wrote Texas actor Randy Quaid. “It’s just sad the Left has chosen to destroy the values that made us great. This political stunt will not keep Trump out of office.”
