Chrissy Teigen and Andy Cohen lead celebrities reacting to Donald Trump’s Twitter ban

Chrissy Teigen, Andy Cohen, Bette Midler and more celebrities are tweeting in celebration of President Donald Trump’s permanent suspension from Twitter.

On Friday, Twitter announced it had banned Trump’s account, claiming the decision was made to reduce the risk of ‘further incitement to violence.’

This came just days after the 74-year-old politician’s supporters rioted through the United States Capitol.

While the president had more than 88.7 million followers, John Legend’s wife, 35, made it clear she would not miss his presence by tweeting a representation of heavy laughter.

‘AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHH,’ mused Teigen, who was previously blocked by Trump on Twitter. 

The humorous reaction earned the Cravings cookbook’s author more than 166,300 likes and 15,100 retweets within just a few hours. 

Meanwhile, Bravo’s late night talk show Andy Cohen quipped that the idea of him hosting a reunion between Trump and his children would be ‘too lowbrow’ for him.

After a fan joked he should host the next Trump family reunion ‘after he’s forcibly removed from the White House since his meltdown is no longer being broadcast live on Twitter,’ Cohen declined, noting the segment would be too trashy, even after ten years of hosting the Real Housewives franchise.
