Since the NYPD evacuated Zuccotti Park late last night, celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their frustration, affirm their politics, and offer encouragement to Occupy Wall Street protesters. Even funnyman Russell Brand offered a serious response to the news: “#OWS moved out of Liberty Park “because they’re blocking 1st responders”- here’s my 1st response ‘that’s bulls***.'” See what other celebs tweeted below.
