Celebrities Blast Trump’s ‘Shameful’ Plan to Withdraw From Paris Climate Accord

Hollywood was quick to respond as President Donald Trump announced that he plans to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord on Thursday.

Former Vice President Al Gore called the decision “reckless and indefensible.” In a statement, Gore said, “It undermines America’s standing in the world and threatens to damage humanity’s ability to solve the climate crisis in time. But make no mistake: if President Trump won’t lead, the American people will.”

The Weather Channel updated its homepage to address the potential effects of the announcement.

Leonardo DiCaprio, who previously addressed world leaders to join the Paris Agreement, voiced his disappointment on Twitter and urged others to take action.

Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, announced his departure from Trump’s advisory councils upon the announcement.

Actor Kal Penn, who worked in the White House Office of Public Engagement under the Obama administration, prompted activism.

Obama’s former chief speechwriter Jon Favreau pointed out potential reasoning for Trump’s decision.

Director Ava DuVernay summed up her thoughts in just one word: “Shameful.”

Bette Midler took aim at the press for the decision she called “destructive.”

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson took a jab at Trump’s entire administration.

Filmmaker and activist Michael Moore penned a string of messages about the severity of Trump’s decision.

Jeff Immelt, CEO of General Electric, gave a nod to industry’s impact on the future.

Jimmy Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearney, discredited climate change deniers.
