Some of the biggest celebrities in the world have expressed outrage in response to the US Capitol riots.
One woman was shot dead as President Donald Trump’s supporters breached barricades and stormed the US Capitol while officials tried to vote in the US President elect Joe Biden.
Hollywood A-listers are currently flocking to social media to galvanise their millions of followers to take action, with some calling for Trump to be immediately removed from power.
Sarah Jessica Parker has notably broken her seven year Twitter silence to tweet about the US Capitol breach.
Here are all of the celebrity reactions to the evolving situation.
“2 completely different America’s that we are living in. If these people were black they would have all been shot dead. This sh… is past the word sad….at this point it’s pure disrespect to all people of color (sic).”
“The irony is pretty funny………weren’t people just wild animals in the summer for demanding justice and now?……Let me just watch (sic).”
“While the rest of the world watches these images, may they also read and see that the vast majority of Americans are outraged by what we are seeing. May they know that the vast majority of us condemn this violence and may they also look to our new president @JoeBiden.”
“As a United States Citizen, and the daughter of two veterans, and the sister of another, I am ashamed of what is happening in Washington. Hypocrisy, shame, Embarrassment. Unpatriotic hypocritical sheep drinking poison Kool aid. This a sad day for America.”
“It’s a good thing this wasn’t a BLM rally or else these a..holes would have actual riot police to deal with (sic).”

“Unimaginable. Disgraceful. Shocking. But no surprise. So many to hold responsible. You know who you are. You dismissed the violent, divisive, cruel rhetoric. You made excuses. Cowards He/you are not leaders. We will try to re-build. You will try to live with yourselves (sic).”
The Hulk actor is still live tweeting about the escalating violence and is calling on his fans to sign a petition to remove Trump from power immediately.
“We are watching the death throes of #MAGA.”
“This is either a dereliction of duty by the Capital Police or a complicit desire to not plan for the known threat of chaos today. Either way, this is inexcusable. If you can be prepared for imaginary ANTIFA protestors, you had no business not prepping for these actual terrorists.”
“So, are we completely out of rubber bullets and tear gas?”
“Just think of the carnage had they not been white.”
“Hundreds of domestic terrorists broke into the US Capitol today. How many arrests were made?”
“Was there a 2021: “hold my beer” meme going around today?”
