Attorney Michael Avenatti is getting roasted on social media in the wake of his arrest on multiple federal charges, including trying to extort Nike for millions of dollars.

Avenatti, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, was arrested Monday around 1 p.m., a short time after he teased a press conference about Nike Tuesday morning. He was taken into custody in New York, prosecutors said.

Here's a sampling of tweets reacting to the news about Avenatti, who gained notoriety for representing porn star Stormy Daniels — the recipient of a hush payment for not discussing an alleged affair she had with Trump several years before he took office:

John Cardillo of Newsmax TV:
".@MichaelAvenatti tried to extort or frame Nike, Trump, and Kavanaugh. How many others has he done this to?"

Brent Bozell, Media Research Center founder:
"CNN put Michael Avenatti on the air SEVENTY-FOUR TIMES over a two-month period to savage Donald Trump. Trump has been vindicated completely in the Russia collusion charade. Avenatti was just charged with extortion. CNN is having a very, very bad day."

Caleb Hull of Targeted Victory:
"Just going to leave this deleted tweet of CNN hosts partying with @MichaelAvenatti here…"

Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA:
"Let me see if I have this timeline correct:

"1. Mueller Report drops
"2. Trump exonerated on all charges
"3. Avenatti arrested
"4. For committing the *exact same federal crimes* he was accusing Trump of committing

"BONUS: Stormy still has to pay 300K in Trump legal fees

"Yes? 😭"

Buck Sexton, radio host:
"It's official: Avenatti beats out Michael Cohen for worst lawyer in America"

Laura Ingraham, Fox News host:
"It's Lent but it feels like Christmas. Avenatti charged. Trump cleared."

Donald Trump Jr.:
"Good news for my friend @MichaelAvenatti, if you plead fast enough, you might just get to share a cell with Michael Cohen! #basta"

Steven Crowder of BlazeTV:
"And now Avenatti? #MondayMotivaton never felt so good."

Corey Lewandowski, former Trump campaign manager:
"Michael Avenatti was just arrested. Does this mean he won't be on Cable News Tonight?"

Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA:
"Lovely irony: Michael Avenatti just got indicted the Monday after Trump didn't"

Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager:
"Wow. What an amazing last 48 hours. I can't stop watching. 😳"

Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students For Trump:
"Michael Avenatti is being charged for attempting to extort $25 million dollars from Nike.

"Wasn't this guy the star lawyer of the Democratic Party? 🤣"

Ben Shapiro, conservative commentator:
"Trump chanting 'Lock Him Up!' about Avenatti at rallies is going to be amazing"
