Celebrities and athletes took to social media on our nation’s birthday to express their discontent for the United States.
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore received much attention for his post wishing America a “Happy Resistance Day!” He tweeted, “The revolt continues, some 242 years later. C’mon, people! Let’s Finish this!”
Happy Resistance Day!
The revolt continues, some 242 years later.
C’mon, people! Let’s finish this!

San Antonio Spurs rookie Lonnie Walker IV received blowback for his tweet that said he “will never celebrate the 4th of July.”

HBO’s Bill Maher, who said last month he is hoping for a recession as a way of getting rid of Trump, also used the Fourth to take a stab at the president.
Happy 4th, everybody – hope you’re enjoying celebrating America and everything it used to stand for (sad emoji face).

Not all celebs were negative. Actor Will Smith posted a photo of himself and Jeff Goldbloom from Independence Day, a movie where the duo saved the planet from alien invasion. The caption read, “You’re Welcome, America!”
