Until recently, most celebrities were staying quiet on the subject of Syria.
TV legend Ed Asner told The Hollywood Reporter he believes it's because "A lot of people don't want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama."
While notorious anti-war protester celebs like Sean Penn and George Clooney have remained silent, only Madonna and rapper Azealia Banks spoke out (loudly) on their social media accounts.
After President Barack Obama addressed the nation on Tuesday to discuss the United States' potential military involvement in Syria, many celebrities finally spoke out on Twitter.
Here's what they had to say.
Fascinated to see how Pres Obama tries to persuade Americans what should be done in #Syria when he doesn't seem to have a clue himself. #CNN— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 11, 2013

Is anyone else super unnerved by Obama's Syria speech? I'm all for peace over politics but this situation is very unique. What's your take?— Shenae Beech (@shenaegrimes) September 11, 2013
Well, turns out the world is F'd beyond reasonable repair. Obama would have been a great Tevye. "On the other hand..."— josh groban (@joshgroban) September 11, 2013
Obama must now start focusing on OUR COUNTRY, jobs, healthcare and all of our many problems. Forget Syria and make America great again!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2013
I will always respect and honor whoever is our president. I can't imagine the immense amount of pressure he's under. Just worried. :(— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) September 11, 2013

Watching the Presidential Address To The Nation. Who else is watching? Should we attack Syria or not?— Reggie Bush (@ReggieBush) September 11, 2013 And the humorous:
Obama had 2 separate lunches with Republicans & Democrats today. Then Chris Christie said, “Maybe I DO want to be president.” #fallonmono— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) September 11, 2013
