19 Trump Twitter Targets

Stars claim Trump fired the former Exxon Mobil CEO for calling him a moron and publicly speaking out against Russia.

The revolving door at the White House just keeps spinning, with the latest name flying out of it being the one attached to the now former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. President Donald Trump fired Tillerson on Tuesday morning, which came as both a shock and at the same time is anything really shocking on Capitol Hill anymore?

After the news broke, Hollywood immediately erupted via Twitter with theories as to why he was booted.

One theory: The former Exxon Mobil CEO was canned after reportedly calling Trump a moron -- his office ultimately denied it, though his only response was, "I'm not going to deal with petty stuff like that." This led to a ridiculous public feud between the two men culminating in Trump telling Forbes, "I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests, and I can tell you who is going to win."

Still, others more entrenched in the Russian collusion theory surrounding the Trump White House suspect Tillerson's ouster may have more to do with his publicly stating on Monday that he believed Russia was behind the nerve gas attack against a former Russian spy in the U.K. While the British Prime Minster Theresa May also made that declaration, the White House has not backed this assertion. Trump replaced Tillerson with the more loyal CIA chief Mike Pompeo.

Below are some of the most pointed and passionate responses to the firing from Hollywood's elite:
