Rose McGowan, Bette Midler, and Corey Feldman were among the celebrities and media figures who weighed in on Wednesday’s news that longtime “Today” show host Matt Lauer has been fired from NBC News following sexual harassment allegations.

Midler wrote, “Matt? Lauer? You’re joking? Right? Men have dropped their … oh, what’s the use.”
