American celebrities have taken to their social media platform to call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, over the violent siege of the Capitol by the president’s supporters.
The riot was incited by comments made by Trump at a rally earlier that day. The invasion disrupted a joint session of Congress who were counting the vote of the Electoral College to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.
Taking to her Twitter account, famous American singer, Lady Gaga, called for Trump’s impeachment.
She tweeted, “I hope we focus to impeach Trump so Congress has the constitutional authority to possibly disqualify him from future election—the #25thAmendment doesn’t disqualify him. He incited domestic terror—how much more violence needs to happen? This is terrorism.”
Stevie Wonder posted, “It is time for the leaders of this country to invoke the 25th Amendment. Isn’t it obvious? Today has made me sad with disbelief with what is happening in my country, a country that has inspired my songs of hope and love.”
Actor Jon Cryer simply tweeted, “Impeach him. Remove him. Arrest him. Try him.”
Multiple award-winning singer, John Legend wrote, “Thank you to the House of Representatives for doing your constitutional duty. Everyone please call your senators and tell them to remove this evil man from office.”
Also, American filmmaker Ava DuVernay tweeted, “We are dressed and ready for the #ImpeachmentParty. What are you wearing?”
