President Donald Trump announced Friday he’s replacing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly. Celebrities are now reacting on Twitter to the latest shakeup in the Trump administration. See Hollywood stars’ tweets below.

“I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff,” the president tweeted Friday afternoon. “He is a Great American and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration.” The president added, “I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!”

One celebrity weighing in on the situation is Seth Rogen, who posted a screenshot of Priebus’ Twitter profile, which currently reads “White House Chief of Staff for @realDonaldTrump,” and responded, “Time to change that Twitter bio big man.” In reference to recently ousted White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Albert Brooks joked, “Rumor: Reince and Spicer to open a Ben and Jerry’s.” And Jesse Tyler Ferguson noted, “I’ve worked in both retail & food service. I thought the turnover rate was high. Little did I know…”

Meanwhile, John Cusack offered, “Lemme guess – trump brought in another utterly corrupted sycophant? Trumpocalypse now.” George Takei wrote, “Reince is out. When chaos becomes the only constant, nothing can truly be accomplished. Of course in Donald’s case, that’s a good thing.” And in reference to the numerous other firings and resignations in Trump’s administration over the past few months, Alyssa Milano said, “This is the most telling thing about this President.”

Stephen Colbert cracked about Priebus’s successors, “I’d like to say congratulations to new Chief of Staff John Kelly but I’m afraid he’ll be fired before I send the tweet.” He added, “Good bye, Reince. May you rest in Priebus.” “Can @Reince and @seanspicer write books? Maybe co-author one? Or did they sign NDAs?” asked Katie Couric. Gossip Cop will update as more celebrities react to Trump replacing Priebus as his Chief of Staff.
