Hollywood Reacts to Donald Trump’s Guilty Verdict in Hush Money Case

Steve Martin, Mark Hamill, Lynda Carter, George Takei and Sheryl Lee Ralph are among those in Hollywood who have taken to social media to share their reaction to Donald Trump’s guilty verdict in his New York criminal hush money trial.

A jury found the former president, who could face four years in prison or probation, guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records. Throughout the five weeks of testimony, the jury heard from a former tabloid publisher, a Hollywood fixer, Trump’s former lawyer and a porn star.

Trump also became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. Sentencing is set for July 11.

Ralph, star on Abbott Elementary, quickly took to X, formerly Twitter, on Thursday, writing, “Former President Donald Trump has been found guilty of all 34 counts he faced. A cheer has erupted from Collect Pond Park.”

Star Wars alum Hamill shared a graphic that repeated the word “guilty” several times, while actor Billy Baldwin wrote, “Guilty on all counts. E. Jean Carroll [Check emoji] Stormy Daniels [Check emoji] Election interference, espionage and inciting an insurrection coming up.”

Martin, actor on Only Murders in the Buildingwrote on social media, “Stormy Trumps Donald!!!,” as well as “Today would be a good day for the GOP members to engage in serious self-reflection about their devotion to a convicted felon.”

“The Republican candidate for President is a convicted felon,” author Stephen King said on X.

Bloodline actor John Leguizamo shared on social media, “We are all cheering for justice and that no one is above the law!” Star Trek star George Takei also took to X to write, “We should start referring to him as 34 instead of 45.”
