Several celebrities including Katy Perry, Ava DuVernay, Kathy Griffin, Ike Barinholtz and many others have taken to Twitter to blast President Donald Trump after he wrote an ‘insensitive tweet’ in response to the California wildfires.
According to CBS Los Angeles, the horrific Woolsey Fire in Malibu County in California has prompted over 250,000 residents to evacuate and has burned over 150 homes. Many celebrities have evacuated, including Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Rainn Wilson, Orlando Bloom, and Alyssa Milano.”Doctor Strange” director Scott Derrickson‘s home burned to the ground including Caitlyn Jenner.
Instead of sympathizing with those who lost their homes in the tragedy, Trump decided to blame the state of California for “poor” management.
“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” Trump wrote Saturday morning. “Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
“American Idol” judge Katy Perry slammed Trump’s tweet and called his response “heartless.”
“There aren’t even politics involved,” she wrote. “Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters.”
Ava DuVernay wrote, “This man is demented. Never stop saying it.” “The Oath” star Ike Barinholtz called Trump, who is currently in France to talk about WWI, a “piece of shit”, while Ellen DeGeneres’ EP Andy Lassner called the President a “sociopath” for his insensitive comments.
