Jimmy Kimmel Tweets EPA Pick ‘Scott Pruitt Is a Piece of S***’

President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency faced legislators on Capitol Hill as his confirmation hearings began Jan. 18. At the same time, celebrities spewed vitriol about him online.

Comedian and television show host Jimmy Kimmel slammed Trump’s cabinet pick, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, in a tweet saying, “Put simply, Scott Pruitt is a piece of shit.  If you care about the outdoors, stop him.”

The Jimmy Kimmel Live host wasn’t the only one Hollywood-type criticizing Pruitt. The Good Place actress Kristen Bell spoke up too. Bell posted several tweets arguing against putting Pruitt in charge of the EPA.

“I’m for leaders who lead and protect. not ones who infiltrate to destroy,” Bell tweeted, while linking to a Daily Beast article saying Pruitt “is worse than you think.”
