Celebs are NOT happy about Billy Bush’s suspension from the ‘Today’ show! Kristen Bell and other stars couldn’t wrap their heads around the fact that Billy could be suspended for his crude conversation with Donald Trump when the GOP candidate could continue to run for president. See their angry tweets here!
News of Billy‘s suspension from Today broke just before Donald, 70, took on Hillary Clinton in the second presidential debate on Oct. 9, and as celebs tuned in they realized how ridiculous it was for Trump to be allowed to continue his bid for the White House. After all, Donald was the one making most of the crude comments!
“So Billy Bush was suspended from @TheTodayShow & we may nominate the other guy on the tape to run the free world. AM I IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE?!” Kristen Bell tweeted. Also chiming in was actor Billy Eichner, who didn’t exactly express frustration but rather showed his support for Donald’s opponent Hillary Clinton. Check out the tweets below:
Billy Bush = suspended by NBC. Other guy = possible leader of the free world. Im in a fugue state…

Many men are awful. Which is exactly why I am so happy to finally be voting for a woman. #imwithher

Billy Bush suspended. Donald Trump permitted to participate in debate for PRESIDENT OF THE GODDAMNED UNITED STATES.

Although it was probably fair that Billy, 44, would be punished for being involved in the crude conversation with Donald in 2005, it does seem a bit ridiculous that Billy’s job could be on the line when Donald is still allowed to potentially run the United States. Sure, Billy laughed as Trump joked about grabbing women “by the p***y” and cheating on his wife Melania Trump, but you would think Donald would be punished before Billy!
To make matters worse, Donald addressed the conversation with Billy during the Oct. 9 debate and referred to it a “locker room talk” (let the angry tweets commence once again!). On the other hand, before Billy was even suspended, all he could do was apologize and say how “embarrassed” and “ashamed” he was to have a convo like that with Trump. Something’s just doesn’t seem right here, and celebs couldn’t help noticing — perhaps Donald’s campaign will realize that soon too?
HollywoodLifers, do you agree with Kristen and the other frustrated celebs? Should Donald still be allowed to run for president? Tell us below!
