Hollywood Celebrates the Fourth of July With Red, White and Blue Pride

Tuesday marked Independence Day in America, giving most of the country an excuse to skip work and celebrate with friends and family. And since stars are just like us, Hollywood also took part in the 4th of July festivities with enough red, white, and blue to crash all of Twitter.

While most celebrities took to social media to simply give thanks on the historic holiday, a few others used the opportunity to promote their political views. But regardless of what they had to say, they had no choice but to say it in 140 characters or less.

Mark Ruffalo kicked things off with a photo of his own personal hero/”Avengers” co-star Chris Evans … er … Captain America.

Ellen DeGeneres, Ricky Gervais, and Hank Azaria made sure to keep the holiday light by tweeting pictures of particularly patriotic animals and babies.

Of course, not everyone in Hollywood is in a celebratory mood at the moment due to our divided political climate. Bette Midler, Bill Maher, and Conan O’Brien used their biting wit to send a strong message.

But for the most part, famous Twitter users seemed to be in good spirits this Independence Day. Just look at what Ashton Kutcher, Barbra Streisand, Kumail Nanjiani shared:

Plus, “Saturday Night Live” even posted a playlist of their most patriotic skits and sketches to ensure 4th of July fun.
