See some of the reactions he got from the tweet, some were in support, others were in support of the celebrities.
I think legal moves should be initiated against them all and diplomatic ones too, with petitions to embassies and foreign legislative houses?
The brands they work with/for can also be petitioned.
That way, everyone will sit up and denounce fake news.
