As we head into the weekend, America’s celebrities are pretty convinced we’re all going to die, thanks to President Donald Trump.

Joss Whedon thinks Twitter’s TOS can save us all:

When Trump threatens N. Korea he’s threatening N. Koreans. With genocide. @twitter, DELETE HIS ACCOUNT. It’s literally the least you can do.

As does former Obama adviser and actor Kal Penn:

Kumail Nanjiani of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” begged “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson to release the film early:

Hey @rianjohnson can you release Star Wars right now? I don’t think we’re gonna make it to the release date. Thank you.

And Chrissy Teigen joked if she should start hoarding food:

honestly should we be getting masks and canned food? how real is this. I am just cooking and online shopping like I’m not about to die
