Stars Celebrate Labor Day 2016 – See Celebrity Tweets!
Monday is Labor Day, and a number of stars are celebrating on social media. Check out the celebrity tweets below!
Labor Day, a federal holiday, was founded to recognize the contributions of America’s workers. Of course, over the years, it’s also turned into the unofficial end of summer. For many, the day means barbecues and final trips to the beach.
For others, it’s a last hurrah before school really gets going on. And for some, it’s just the end of a long weekend. This year, the remnants of Hurricane Hermine is still affecting would-be celebrants on the East Coast. But no matter how the day is spent, plenty are talking about it on Twitter.
Early Monday morning, Robert Downey Jr. posted a photo of his Iron Man character Tony Stark, along with the caption, “Happy Labor Day!

Meanwhile, Soledad O’Brien’s holiday got off to a poor start after recent comments she made about CNN’s coverage of Donald Trump led trolls to attack her on Twitter. She confessed, “So far this morning I’ve been called a c**t, a b**ch and a whore by the good folks on twitter! (And it’s 730 am) Happy Labor Day everybody!!” Courteney Cox offered, “Hope you’re all having a great Labor Day!!” And Ellen DeGeneres took the opportunity to plug her animated movie, insisting, “There’s no better Labor Day plan than seeing #FindingDory! It’s back in theaters! Go see it. I sound even more beautiful the second time.”
New Jersey governor and former presidential candidate Chris Christie posted, “Wishing everyone a safe and happy Labor Day!” Eric Trump, the son of Republican nominee Donald Trump, remarked, “Happy Labor Day friends! It is a great day to be an American!” And even the New York Islanders said, “Happy Labor Day #Isles fans!”
