Hollywood is using Twitter to offer messages of support to the victims of Hurricane Isaac — except Reggie Bush, who claims, ‘it rains like this all the time.’

Topical storm Issac is forecast to become a Category 1 hurricane and many celebrities have taken to their Twitter accounts to offer support and encouragement to those in the regions affected.

“Damn hurricane get’n in the way of me going down to Louisiana to fight to preserve the ISFsanctuary land from be’n destroyedby a development,” Ian Somerhalder tweeted Aug. 26.

“Prayers And Blessings For The Good People Of New Orleans And Gulf Coast For Oncoming Hurricane.BE SAFE.BE WELL.Peace And Love.God Bless You,” tweeted Spike Lee.

“Everyone let’s keep N.O in our prayers you guys as they face hurricane Issac,” tweeted American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino.

Anderson Cooper and Kim Kardashian‘s sidekick, Jonathan Cheban, tweeted photos of the rising water.

Issac has already claimed the lives of 22 people and caused significant flooding and damage in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Despite the devastating destruction, not every celebrity is using their star power to express sympathy.

“This hurricane is just like any other normal day in Miami I don’t really see what the big deal is! Lol! It rains like this all the time,” wrote NFL athlete Reggie Bush.

Though we hope that Reggie was joking, many fans were offended by his insensitive quip.

Currently, the storm has sustained winds of 70 mph, merely four miles below hurricane strength. While Issac would be well below the intensity of Hurricane Katrina, a Category 3 storm, forecasters worry that its slow-moving system could result in widespread flooding.

Do YOU think more celebrities should offer their support on Twitter? And what do you think about Reggie’s post?
