Bette Midler and a number of other celebrities became unhinged Monday after President Donald Trump warned Iran President Hassan Rouhani not to threaten the U.S.

“I DEMAND THAT TWITTER TAKE THIS INCITEMENT YO VIOLENCE DOWN IMMEDIATELY!!!,” the 72-year-old actress and singer tweeted to her millions of followers. The comment came in response to Trump tweeting the following:

“To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS,” the president’s tweet read.

Debra Messing retweeted the president’s tweet and wrote “REPORTED”  to Twitter support.

Other Hollywood personalities took to their social media accounts after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that Trump was not only “looking to take away [John] Brennan’s security clearance, he is also looking into the clearances of [James] Comey, [James] Clapper, [Michael] Hayden, [Susan] Rice and [Andrew] McCabe.”
