Hollywood stars took to social media Thursday to denounce the Federal Communications Commission, Chairman Ajit Pai, and the agency’s vote to repeal Obama-era net neutrality regulations, restoring what the FCC chief called the restoration of a “free and open Internet.”
Avengers star Chris Evans said: “EVERYONE should care about this! It benefits no one unless you’re a faceless, mega corporation. NOBODY is asking for it.”
Meanwhile, other celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell and porn star Mia Khalifa offered up decidedly more vulgar reactions.
O’Donnell responded to the vote by tweeting the hashtag “#FUCKtheFCC” while Khalifa hurled a personal attack at Pai: “Kill yourself, @AjitPaiFCC. Before someone trying to run a dungeon on WoW and can’t access their server does it for you. #NetNeutrality.”
