Katy Perry is slamming President Trump over his tweet about the California wildfires, which have forced tens of thousands of people to quickly evacuate their homes, including several high-profile celebrities.
In his tweet early Saturday, Trump blamed the “costly” fires on “gross mismanagement of the forests,” adding “Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
The singer took to Twitter the same day to retweet the president’s tweet with her own reaction, calling Trump’s reaction “heartless.”
“This is an absolutely heartless response. There aren’t even politics involved. Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters,” she tweeted.
Perry wasn’t the only celebrity to call out Trump on his reaction to the fire. John Legend also tweeted out his own snarky thoughts.
“Our National Embarrassment can’t bring himself to show some empathy to Californians dealing with a horrific disaster,” he wrote.
In a follow-up tweet, Legend thanked firefighters for their service.
“I’m grateful for our brave firefighters doing dangerous work to save their neighbors,” he wrote.
