Several celebrities went on the offensive on social media after learning of the results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 presidential election.
Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the "principal conclusions" of Mueller's probe in a bombshell four-page letter to Congress, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump's team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election.
While some on cable news pointed out it was good news that the president was found to not have colluded with Russia, Barr's report did not make many anti-Trump stars happy.
"Did not imagine a world where they were able to indict Aunt Becky before Donald Trump," actor and comedian Billy Eichner tweeted after Barr revealed the investigation "did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated" with Russians.

Mueller was only allowed to look at potential collusion / or obstruction. The money laundering and tax evasion charges are coming sweeties don’t you worry. If we waited 7 years for Game of Thrones winter to come we can wait for this justice a bit longer.— Jonathan Van Ness (@jvn) March 25, 2019
Well, if there was nothing in the report why won’t they just release it?— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) March 24, 2019
If the report fully exonerated him or his family, he’d have it all out in seconds. Wouldn’t he?
You gleaned this from a report based on an investigation you deemed a sham and which clearly states it does not exonerate you?— Adam Goldberg (@TheAdamGoldberg) March 24, 2019
Many other celebrities expressed their displeasure with the results and continue to question whether this means the end to the narrative.
This is why Trump appointed Barr. https://t.co/Vj2kjVFOnC— Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) March 24, 2019
