Sarah Silverman, Debra Messing and Ilana Glazer were among the celebrities to slam members of Congress who voted to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.
The stars took to Twitter yesterday to both criticize the health care overhaul, and put out a call-to-action before the bill heads to Senate.
Here are some of their reactions.
call your reps or even not your reps and tell them to vote no on AHCA https://t.co/4frM1Cr5sD— ilana glazer (@ilazer) May 4, 2017

Very smart for the Republicans to tie their futures to a bill almost no one likes just to appease the most unpopular president ever— Ike Barinholtz (@ikebarinholtz) May 4, 2017

800 billion dollars cut to Medicaid so #GOPGOONS can give a trillion $ tax cut to the rich. Typical of Freedom Caucus; radical fanatics.— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) May 5, 2017

You can’t make stuff like this up.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Witz and Jeremy Spektor, two twenty-something screenwriters, were having a really hard time getting their Jewish mafia screenplay “The Kosher Nostra” produced. The script, which they wrote with the hopes that Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, James Franco and Aziz Ansari would star, had made it past a few assistants and Creative Executives, but never into the hands of Rogen.
So, Witz and Spektor decided to do the next best thing. The two repackaged the script, crediting Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg as the authors, and sent it out to producers, studio executives, and Will Farrell (you know, just for good measure).
Rogen’s team got wind of all this, and sent out a legal letter warning the duo to stop sending out the script under the actor’s name.
For Witz and Spektor, it was all in the name of art.
“We’ve all heard the myth about a young Spielberg slipping onto the Universal lot,” Witz told The Hollywood Reporter. “This was about getting our script past the ‘gatekeepers’ and into the right hands.”
Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogen, William Shatner and more A-listers are fighting back against United Airlines’ recent leggings controversy.
In case you missed it, the airline landed in hot water on Sunday after gate agents refused to allow three young girls to board their flight because they were wearing leggings. According to Jonathan Guerin, a spokesperson for United Airlines, the agents “have the right to refuse passengers who are not properly clothed via our Contract of Carriage.”
Guerin added: “Our regular passengers are not going to be denied boarding because they are wearing leggings or yoga pants. But when flying as a pass traveler, we require this pass travelers to follow rules, and that is one of those rules.”
Silverman took to Twitter to push the airline on their policies.
“Hey @united I fly a LOT. About to go on tour all April and changing all my @united flights to other airlines,” she wrote.

Then Seth Rogen stepped in.
“We here at @united are just trying to police the attire of the daughters of our employees! That’s all! Cool, right?” he wrote.

And William Shatner added his own take.
“I’m going to start wearing leggings! Is that against the rules? ?#outdatedfashion #outdatedrules,” he tweeted.

“See? ?? I’ve done it before! ??”

And Kat Dennings rounded it out with her own fashion take.
I ONLY wear leggings. Suck it @united— Kat Dennings (@OfficialKat) March 26, 2017
Seth Rogen has been sliding into Donald Trump Jr.’s direct messages like a pro — and he’s taking us along for the ride.
It all started when the comedian realized that Trump Jr. followed him on Twitter.
“Yo! @DonaldJTrumpJr! I noticed you follow me on Twitter. Please ask your dad to resign before he destroys the planet. Thanks dude,” Rogen wrote.

Then, Rogen took it one step further by privately messaging the president’s son.
Let’s see if this works! pic.twitter.com/q5b3d8U4Nx— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 16, 2017
If @jasoninthehouse won’t investigate Flynn’s ties to Russia, maybe I can get his boss’ son to help me do it. pic.twitter.com/bmOfDDepC3— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 16, 2017
And one more time for good measure.

No word yet on a response from Trump Jr., but definitely A+ for effort.
With President Obama leaving the White House, we also have to say goodbye to one of our favorite bromances of all-time.
Yup, you know what we’re talking about. The leader of the free world and his “brother” Vice President Joe Biden.
Remember that time Biden made a friendship bracelet for Obama?
Happy 55th, Barack! A brother to me, a best friend forever. pic.twitter.com/uNsxouTKOO— Vice President Biden (@VP) August 4, 2016
Or when their selfie game was on fire?
To honor the iconic White House friendship, we pulled together seven of our very favorite Jewish bromances.
Jonah Hill and Adam Levine
The actor and the Maroon 5 frontman have been best bros since childhood (they even carpooled to school together). In 2014, Hill officiated Levine’s wedding. #FriendshipGoals.
Seth Rogen and James Franco
Often a bromance is just hinted at: a longing glance here, a hug there, the rest is left to our (juicy) imagination. But not when it comes to best buddies Seth Rogen and James Franco. In a parody of Kanye West’s video “Bound 2,” they gifted us with a full blown make out session on a motorcycle.
Zac Efron and Dave Franco
James is not the only Franco brother who’s got some bro-loving. The bromance between Dave Franco and his “Neighbors”-co-star Zac Eforn is so real that tabloids even regularly announce that the two are dating. This was spurred on by a sarcastic Instagram post of James congratulating his little brother on the relationship with Efron. Sadly not true. A girl can dream, though.
Donald Faison and Zach Braff
Donald Faison and Zach Braff are one of the most iconic TV bromances, but their love extends from the set of “Scrubs” out into the real world. The two tweet at each other, spend birthdays together, and Braff even took over an AMA that Faison was doing on Reddit.
If this isn’t the picture of love, what is?
Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff
“Divergent” star Ansel Elgort and “Paper Towns” lead Nat Wolff met on the set of “The Fault in Our Stars.” Since then the two have become inseparable and even tag their Instagram pictures with #bff. But the ultimate proof of their bromance was when they recreated this alternate “The Fault in Our Stars” movie poster pictured above.
Fans love their love so much that they create a celebrity couple nickname for them: Nansel.
Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Bob Saget
What’s better than two guys celebrating their bromance? Three!
Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Bob Saget met on the set of “Full House” in the 1990s, and have been friends since. They got to rekindle their guy love when Netflix rebooted “Fuller House.”
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert
All I want in life is for someone to look at me the way Jon Stewart looks at Stephen Colbert.
Stewart gave his Colbert his start as a correspondent on “The Daily Show” and the two men continue to be close long after leaving the show. Stewart even used to have a bobble head of his friend in his office.
After all that Jewish bromantic love, its time for a celebration!
