Celebrities React: Kellyanne Conway Cites Fictional Massacre To Defend Travel Ban
Celebrities are reacting on Twitter to Kellyanne Conway, the Counselor to President Donald Trump, blaming two Iraqi refugees for a massacre that never happened while defending Trump’s travel ban in an interview on Thursday. See stars’ reaction to Conway’s exchange with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews below, along with a clip from the interview.
As Gossip Cop reported, Conway recently came under fire for claiming in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd that White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave “alternative facts” when he inaccurately described the attendance size at the Trump’s inauguration in January. Now, Conway is being ridiculed on social media for referring to the so-called “Bowling Green Massacre” in Kentucky after she defended Trump’s travel ban. No such massacre ever happened.
Chelsea Clinton expressed, “Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre. Please don’t make up attacks.” Josh Gad tweeted, “Could be wrong, but I believe the #BowlingGreenMasacre is the working title of the new ‘John Turturro Lebowski’ spinoff,” adding, “Everyone gets the day off. These #BowlingGreenMasacre tweets deserve our full engagement. A mosaic of comedic wonderment is taking place.” And Ricky Gervais said, “Don’t stop going to bowling greens. That’s just what the terrorists want.”
British comedian Matt Lucas joked, “Today we remember the fictional people who lost their lives in the Bowling Green massacre.” Billy Eichner wrote, “There’s only one director who could properly depict the relentless carnage of the Bowling Green Massacre and that’s Mel Gibson.” And Silicon Valley actor Kumali Nanjiani joked, “I lost my cousin-in-law at the Bowling Green Massacre.”
“I survived the Bowling Green Massacre by hiding behind a Polybius machine when the first shots rang out,” cracked Patton Oswalt. Rob Delaney quipped, “I lost my virginity the day of the Bowling Green Massacre.” And Seth MacFarlane wrote directly to Conway, “Thanks for acknowledging Bowling Green, but what about the Tarsus IV massacre implemented by Governor Kodos?” Zach Braff even shared a photo of a field with balls on it, calling it the “Site of Bowling Green Massacre.”
