Celebrities React to FCC's Net Neutrality Repeal - Read the Tweets

The FCC has just voted 3-2 to repeal its net neutrality rules that were originally put into place by Barack Obama‘s administration.

According to the New York Times, “Internet providers will have more power over the web, allowing them to favor certain sites. The federal government will also no longer regulate high-speed internet delivery as if it were a utility, like phone services.”

In layman’s terms, it means that companies can not block websites or offer certain companies faster loading speeds for money. So, if you want to visit YouTube, or Netflix, your internet service provider can’t charge you money for visiting them. With the repeal of Net Neutrality, this will no longer be the case.

Just moments after the vote happened, celebrities have been taking to Twitter to share reactions. In the weeks leading up to the vote, protests have been happening across the US.

    Disgraceful. Internet will become like cable tv and have ‘tiers’ and we’ll have to pay more if we want say social media bundle or entertainment bundle or movie bundle or gaming bundle and will end up having to buy the extra premium package if we want FB, Hulu (which means we’ll pay TWICE for it), and gaming. It wasn’t working for cable and it will NOT work for internet and must be stopped! When will Americans WAKE THE FRICK UP and stop voting in Republicans who lie to them to get elected then focus on making the rich, richer. Learn the lesson.

    - vote for somebody and the media will have them out next term !
    - Well, you know who to blame, knock on their door as they’re making too much money !
