Celebrities wept and raged on Saturday night when billionaire Elon Musk announced that former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account would not be suspended following user comments.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk announced.
Musk decided to reinstate the former president’s account after posting a Twitter poll that resulted in 51.8% ‘yes’ to 48.2% ‘no’.
Trump had been banned from his Twitter account since January 2021 following the Capitol Hill riot on Jan. 6.
Although leftists across the platform erupted in a fiery circle of outrage in response to Musk’s announcement, the usual celebrity haters of Trump, Rosemary’s baby actress Mia Farrow at Misery director Rob Reiner at Card castle Michael Kelly, were having a particularly bad evening.
“Get some blood pressure pills,” Farrow retorted.

“Elon Musk is letting a man who led a violent insurgency to overthrow the government of the United States return to this platform,” Reiner lamented. “Let lies and misinformation continue to poison American blood.”

Michael Kelly, that guy from Card castlesuggested that a return to Twitter would “bankrupt” the Truth Social app the former president now uses.
Trump returns to Twitter, he will put yet another of his companies out of business.
Latest Truth Shitshow Social or whatever it was called.

Jean Leguizamo from Super Mario Bros. the celeb promised he would “ghost” Twitter if Trump resumed his posts.

Bette Midler, who just released a secret recruitment film for Disney, called the decision to revive Trump’s narrative a “tragic day for America” and advanced an unproven rumor that Elon Musk illegally emigrated from Israel. South Africa.
A tragic day for #Americawhich Elon doesn’t understand, because deep down he’s not American, any more than #Murdoch is. An illegal immigrant, raised in Apartheid SA, he is fine with racism and hatred. His fake Vox Populi! He was always going to let him come back: he needs eyes.

Judd Apatow, a producer of the mega-queer box office bombshell Brothers, chastised Musk for asking Twitter users for input on the decision.
Why @Elon Musk do you think a poll determines if trump is on the platform and not a review of trump’s actions? It’s not American Idol. People died as a result of his actions on January 6.

John Cusack, voice-over artist for Chevrolet commercials, said “Elon Mush” had restored “a true insurgent fascist criminal to the platform he is destroying.” There’s a lot more to unpack here in this deep free verse:
So Elon mush – to avoid paying taxes. Support fascism – buy twiiter to destroy it. Losing more money than he should have paid if he had supported democracy and a progressive agenda –
& returns a literal insurgent fascist criminal to the platform he is destroying

Josh Gad, the snowman Frozen, reacted to Musk’s announcement with dramatic disdain. “You really are an asshole and an anarchist,” he wrote.

As of this writing, the former president has yet to resume using his account and it remains to be seen if he will actually leave his own social media site Truth Social. Speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas via video link over the weekend, Trump said he might not return.
“I hear we’re getting a big vote to come back on Twitter as well. I don’t see it because I don’t see any reason for it,” Trump said. “It may do it, it may not.”
