Celebs Vent Their Fury On Twitter
George Takei, star of the original Star Trek franchise and one time contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice, believed Trump wanted the fight to be in the gutter.
Mr. Trump is cynically trying to pull all of us down to his level. But none of us can possibly stoop that low.

Don't bring kids to this debate I think it's going to get vulgar & ugly If Trump has anything to do with it.

J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, stripped back all the parody to lay into the candidate unequivocally.
Trump says 'just words, folks.' It's his accusation and his defence. Words don't matter. Facts don't matter. If they don't, we're all lost.

Trump Bringing Out Strong Public Reactions
As Trailer Addict examined earlier this week, actors and Hollywood identities are no longer frightened or cautious about hurting their public reputations. They are getting political in response to the Republican's campaign. CNN reports that even Cleveland Cavaliers baller and star of the 2015 comedy Trainwreck LeBron James has endorsed Hillary Clinton this November.
The upcoming star of the Space Jam reboot pinpointed his local area as a point of difference and wanted his fans to know what he will be doing.
"There's still a lot of work to be done in Akron, Northeast Ohio, and all across our great country," stated James. "We need a president who understands our community and will build on the legacy of President Obama. So let's register to vote, show up to the polls and vote for Hillary Clinton. Hillary has always been a champion for children and their futures."
