Tens of thousands of Hawaiians were terrified on Saturday when a false alarm warned that a ballistic missile was heading towards the island.

Among the panicked was actor Jim Carrey. The legendary comedian took to Twitter to voice his fear and frustration, taking particular aim at president Trump for cultivating a climate of dread.

“I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live,” he tweeted. “It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination.”

He was not the only celebrity to vent via social media. Actress Jaime Lee Curtis blamed the entire fiasco on Trump.

“The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY. Shame on your hate filled self. YOU DID THIS!,” she wrote.

Comedian and filmmaker Judd Apatow used sarcasm to fuel his angry assessment of the false warning. “Great to know the button saying there is a nuclear war is right next to the one saying this is a test,” he tweeted. “This is a load of bullshit.  This is not what happened.  Keep digging. This isn’t about a fucking shift change.”

George Takai found significance in the false report, tweeting, “The emergency alert in Hawaii of an incoming ballistic missile was issued in error—but it is so very much a sign of our times.”

Director and producer Joe Carnahan expressed great pity for the people of Hawaii as well as disgust with Trump. “I feel nothing but pity for the people of Hawaii. American citizens who deserve better than having to suffer 38 minutes of mortal dread before this ICBM threat was called off,” he said “And where is Dear Leader? Hauling his fat ass out of sand trap, playing his 192nd round of golf.”
