Celebrities React to Donald Trump's Tweet About Flag Burning

Early this morning, Donald Trump took to Twitter to tweet that burning the American Flag should be punishable with “loss of citizenship” or a “year in jail.”

“Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!,” the President-elect wrote on his Twitter account.

Celebrities have been taking to Twitter this morning to react to the tweet – and some are pointing out that laws about flag burning have been shut down by the Supreme Court as recently as 1990 saying it violated the First Amendment of the Constitution. The First Amendment protects freedom of speech.

    Trump being president is more disrespectful to America than any flag burning can ever be.

    Putting someone in jail for burning a flag,how about 1yr for hate speech too,since you Mr. Trump wants to take away a constitutional right.

    How can these so called “celebrities” even think that burning their Countries flag is the right thing to do? They have no idea then of what it stands for and what people have sacrificed in the name of said flag.
