Celebrities are slamming Donald Trump for his tweets about the London attacks. See reaction from stars below.

As Gossip Cop reported, multiple acts of terrorism took place in London late Saturday and early Sunday. Seven people were killed and more than 20 were injured. In the immediate aftermath, Trump used the tragedy to call for the reinstatement of his travel ban, which the courts have ruled is unconstitutional. He then expressed support for the U.K.

But hours later, on Sunday morning, Trump went back to politicizing the situation in accordance with his views. “We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse,” the president wrote on Twitter. Then, taking a comment from Sadiq Khan out of context, he tweeted, “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!'”

“Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck,” Trump went on to say. But a number of celebs have taken issue with his comments and questioned his response. “The Big Bang Theory” star Kunal Nayyar, for instance, replied to the president’s gun debate remark, writing, “Now imagine if they had semi automatic weapons that can shoot 100 bullets a minute.”

Fellow “Big Bang” star Mayim Bialik told Trump, “You know nothing. How dare you act like you do. I can’t even. I need a drink.” And Paul Wesley wrote back to the president, “Completely moronic and insensitive statement. If the U.K. had our gun laws, more people would have been prone to injury. In response to the president warning “it will only get worse,” Rosie O’Donnell fired back, “it can’t get worse. u being president is the WORST #REISIT #REMOVE #ARREST POTS45.” And George Takei responded to Trump’s inaccurate tweet about the London mayor, saying, “He said there was no reason to be alarmed by the increased police presence over the next few days, you hare-brained miscreant. Sit down.” Zach Braff similarly said, “He said not to be alarmed by the increased police presence. Go back to your golf game.”

“It’s called ‘leadership,’ Donald,” J.K. Rowling told him on the same subject. “The terrorists were dead 8 minutes after police got the call. If we need an alarmist blowhard, we’ll call.” Also in response to the mayor message, Katie Couric wrote, “We should all express our sympathy and support to the people of London and the officials there.” And Josh Gad quoted a former Barack Obama speechwriter, who said, “It’s hard to read Trump’s tweets this morning and not think that we’re one domestic attack away from the most dangerous version of this guy.” The actor added, “Yes yes and yes.”
