After Mitt Romney officially named Paul Ryan as his presidential running mate today (Aug. 11), celebrities were quick to respond in the Twittersphere.
From Russell Simmons' outrage to Rupert Murdoch's unconditional support and Seth MacFarlane's characteristic irreverence, here are some of the stars' top tweets...
Elizabeth Banks: "I can confirm categorically that I am NOT Mitt Romney's VP nominee. #gamechange."
Michael Ian Black: "Romney/Ryan = same initials as Ronald Reagan. THINK ABOUT IT!!!"
Andy Cohen: I really hope someone has the guts to ask Paul Ryan's stance on the KStew/RPatz situation in California. #NeedClarification
Sanjay Gupta: #43 on the list of things that make you feel old: the VP candidate is younger than you are. paul ryan was born in 1970.
Jared Leto: "Today Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan, who wants to cut Pell Grant scholarships for nearly 10 million students!"
Michael McKean: Ryan says Ayn Rand was his inspiration to enter public service, which is a little like Ray Kroc inspiring a career in nutrition.
Eva Longoria: "Romney's VP pick voted against equal pay for women and repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. We can't go backward."
Seth MacFarlane (with a picture of the Thunderbirds): The selection of Paul Ryan makes me wonder what the Romney cabinet will look like.
Michael Moore: "Channeling Bush, war supporters/military dodgers Romney and Ryan insult those who served by using battleship as their prop."
John Mulaney: Does this mean Paul Ryan won't return to "Royal Pains" next season?
Rupert Murdoch: "Thank God! Now we might have a real election on the great issues of the day. Paul Ryan almost perfect choice."
Patton Oswalt: F***! F***! Goddamit. This is bulls***. I sent that Hickory Farms gift basket for NOTHING. (Sigh). Whatever. Congrats, Paul Ryan
Kal Penn: "This is awful. I was hoping it would be Jindal so I could play him in a HBO movie"
Andy Richter: "I think saying "worst recovery in 70 years" is kinda cute. Doesn't at all beg the phrase "worst recession in 70 years."
Russell Simmons: "Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, two men who will destroy our people..."
Olivia Wilde: "Two R's won't make it right. Romney/Ryan are Wrong for America."
There are only about 2 names in that entire list that I even recognize.
Oh, and Twitter can shove itself up Michael Moore’s a$$.
What celebrities? I haven’t heard of over half of them.
Knee jerk reactions from liberal jerks. 5 will get you 10 that most or all of these celebrities never even heard of Ryan the day before his nomination was announced. As a result, have absolutely no idea of his record and background. All of them would have reacted this same way no matter who romney chose as his running mate.
I’m waiting for Matt Damon’s comments
Wait for it....wait for it....
yeah I read that too.
Who the hell discusses that in a public forum. $$$ does not buy class.
Russell Simmons did not build that.
Time he paid his fair share of taxes and gives back to “his people”.
Why won’t he pay his fair share? Does he hate black people?
Russell Simmons is a no talent big mouth. He made millions in the fetid and festering sewer of Rap and Hip Hop. He is a obvious racist, “OUR people”! He obviously hates whites. What a Turd!
Russell, they’re not “Your” people.
I always wonder how people who can be so rich, also be so stupid
And, Russell Simmons, you Black Racist....you done more harm to your people by pushing rap/hip hop/ghetto gang banger nonsense music
