Stars are reacting to the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The 79-year-old conservative Justice died in his sleep on Friday following a day of hunting at Cibolo Creek Ranch outside of Marfa, Texas. He noted to friends before retiring for the night that he wasn’t feeling well. The next morning, Scalia, appointed by President Ronald Regan in 1986 and the longest-serving Justice on the current Supreme Court, was found dead. Now, celebrities are sharing their reactions to Scalia’s unexpected death.

Donald Trump tweeted, “The totally unexpected loss of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is a massive setback for the Conservative movement and our COUNTRY!” Kate Couric wrote, “So sorry to hear about the death of Justice Scalia, he was my date to the WHCD last year & was charming & engaging.” And Ronan Farrow quoted Scalia, “Pass a law. That’s what democracy is…It’s not about 9 superannuated judges who have been there too long,” before adding, “Scalia, polarizing giant. RIP.”

“Antonine Scalia was found dead in his Hunting Cabin!” exclaimed D.L. Hughley, while Michael Moore simply noted, “Justice Scalia Found Dead at a Resort in Texas. R.I.P.” Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz expressed, “Justice Scalia was an American hero. We owe it to him, & the Nation, for the Senate to ensure that the next President names his replacement.”

“I can’t think of an issue that Scalia and I would agree on. But I always found him compelling, provocative, and very human,” tweeted John Hodgman. Larry King similarly stated, “I did not always agree with Justice #Scalia but I always enjoyed his company. Condolences to his wife & family.” Meanwhile, John Fugelsang wrote, “Sad for the loss of Scalia. Happy for the lives that’ll be saved by the new 5-4 majority.”

“A very sad day… Judgement shall again be just and all the upright of heart will follow it #RIPJUSTICESCALIA,” added Stacey Dash. Arsenio Hall joked, “Conservatives are afraid that Barack Obama will nominate Beyoncé or somebody to the Supreme Court. Just relax!
