Hollywood stars reacted with humor and sarcasm after receiving the first Presidential Alert.

The alert sent out on Wednesday read: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

Although the message was sent out by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, it still appeared to some as if it came from President Donald Trump, Hollywood Life reported.

Some stars raised the possibility of trying to “block” the message, the website said.

Katy Perry just tweeted “*BLOCKS*” and attached a photo of the alert.  

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel posted on Twitter a mocked-up alert reading: “WITCH HUNT, CROOKED HILLARY, NO COLLUSION, CONFIRM KAVANAUGH, #MAGA.”  And he asked: “Did anyone else get this?”

Comic Kathy Griffin, a longtime Trump critic, used her Twitter account to show a phony Presidential Alert reading: “FAILED COMIC KATHY GRIFFIN IS TRYING TO DESTROY A GREAT MAN, BRETT KAVANAUGH! LOSS OF CITIZENSHIP OR EMMY AWARDS.”

William Shatner, tweeted the Presidential Alert and noted: “Do they know I’m Canadian?”

And late night host Stephen Colbert added: “Is there really an emergency so big that everyone in America, people in Hawaii, Florida, Maine, New Mexico have to hear about it at the exact same time? What is that big? If there’s a tsunami, Trump is the last person that I want to get a text from.”
