Following the Valentine’s Day shooting in Florida, liberal snot wads have produced ramblings better-suited to emanate from body cavities south of the mouth. So uninformed are these reactions, they actually contribute to the spread of misinformation (see WATCH: Florida Senator Shows His Ignorance of Guns, Calls Shooter’s Weapon ‘Automatic’ and Chelsea Handler Pretends She Cares About Kids to Push Gun Control. Looks Like an Idiot.).
Behold, the most ignorant celebrity tweets found in a span of 20 or so minutes.
WHEN WILL IT BE ENOUGH?! GUN CONTROL IS NEEDED NOW. WE ARE ALL FUCKING TIRED &HEARTBROKEN FOR MORE INNOCENT LIVES LOST. IM SO SORRY THAT OUR COUNTRY CANT HELP TO PROTECT US. &I AM SO DEEPLY SICKENED THAT PEOPLE CANT STAND UP & SHOUT THAT ASSAULT RIFLES SHOULD NOT BE ACCESSIBLE.

Twitter increased character limits to 280, sure, but the extension didn’t automatically grant intelligence to people with the ALL CAPS stuck in a constant state of keyboard rage. Who wants to bet after Ms. Hale shitposted her bleeding feels, she went right back to whatever script she was reading while sipping the tea of insanity?
Sending all my love and prayers to the families affected in Florida. More lives lost due to gun violence.. I don’t understand how this is still happening after all the horrifying tragedies we’ve witnessed! My heart is in pieces today.

It’s almost like tweeting about how much you hate horrifying tragedies solves nothing. Yet, lather rinse repeat, here we are.
Also, maybe I’m just getting older, but I have no idea who most of these “celebrities” are. You?
We've marched on Washington for a multitude of reasons throughout history for everything from civil rights to AIDS research. The #MeToo movement has changed hearts, minds & is starting to change policy. Where is the organized outrage for Gun Reform that we so desperately need???

A little history lesson: America is a nation which allows for peaceful assembly (of which Billy alluded to) because we fought two wars against a despotic nation. Using firearms. So these same rights you enjoy are a thing because of the right to bear arms. Do try to keep up, Billy dear.
Broward school shooting–There will be prayers from Blabbermouth Don, Pence the Grinch, and their rightwing cohorts. There will be no call for any sort of sane gun regs.

We’d expect better from a writer. Though he does work in the realm of fiction. Advice to Stephen: work on improving the endings of some of your books. Not writing about that which you do not understand.
Who’s “the Grinch” by the way?
If you are not willing to re-examine and renegotiate our relationship to guns and violence, you are a culprit and a coward of the highest order.
This is the 5th school shooting this year and it’s only February. Grow a spine, America.
— Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) February 15, 2018
Again, America is a thing because of firearms. Grow some logic. Blame the problem (the shooter) not the tool he used. Which is why we can call Amber a moron, instead of blaming Twitter for the issuance of her thought-dribble.
19th school shooting of a year less than two months long. This one on my home town in my home state. How many kids need to die? How many more fu*#ing times do we need to hear “now’s not the time to discuss this?” Dozens more? Hundreds more? Thousands? Will it ever matter? https://t.co/YP7pt5iZ98

Hi there. Um, there haven’t been 19 school shootings, but thanks for playing. Keep playing with bees that buzz and blowing dandelion fuzz. Otherwise, get impaled with truth.
I’m an actor with limited political knowledge. There are things I don’t understand. But I‘ve been trying to imagine being a representative or senator watching kids getting shot in school every day only in the US, then choosing to focus my immediate daily efforts on anything else.
— Ben Platt (@BenSPLATT) February 15, 2018
The first sentence is all we need here.
Prayers without accordant action are silent lies told to oneself, heard by no God, amounting to nothing. Action is the language of truth, the prayers of the Saints.

Shorter Mark: “I kinda feel like God hates you if you’re a conservative Christian.”
Heartbroken over the news of another school shooting. This is the 18th in 45 days of 2018. Students & teachers shouldn't have to fear for their safety. We must do more to prevent these senseless acts of gun violence. My heart is w/ the people in Parkland, FL. Enough is enough.
— Reese Witherspoon (@RWitherspoon) February 15, 2018
You know that meme “Reese With her spoon” and “Reese without her spoon”? Can we repurpose it here, just “Reese With her spoon in her eye” swirling her brain like warm gelato?
Heard the word “tragedy” 100 times already about the school shooting – not really, by the classical definition: tragedy is fated and inevitable. This isn’t inevitable. This is America.
— Bill Maher (@billmaher) February 14, 2018
You know what else is inevitable? Celebrities with blue checkmarks believing writing in 280 characters or less, then hitting “send” is valuable. Fact-check: nope.
We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school. Prayers won't do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence
— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 15, 2018
She’s right about one thing: action will help. Like maybe putting a little security around a school as if it was the red carpet where large busted plastic people strutted their (mostly augmented) stuff.
Contrary to what virtue signaling-compelled celebrities believe, rushing to social media to sneeze out some words isn’t as valuable as, say, keeping their fingers busy by flipping through a script. Puffing up their hair. Swiping through filters for their latest selfie. I know it seems like we all need to have thoughts and feelings about a shooting, but that doesn’t mean those thoughts and feelings are worthy of everyone else’s time. Though, to be fair, it is fun to showcase them. The same kind of fun one has while browsing the reject display at a local circus.
It’d be nice if Hollywood could focus its attention on keeping their pants zipped up, and hands to themselves.
