Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort was indicted by a federal grand jury on 12 charges Monday and Hollywood is celebrating.
"I can't wait to see what happens to Manafort's hair in prison," Chelsea Handler tweeted while relishing in the first results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russia and Trump's campaign.
"There are 12 charges. It rather evokes a Xmas carol: 'On the first day of charges, Mueller gave to me: Manafort on treas'nous conspiracy!'" tweeted actor and activist George Takei.
But not every actor who has been regularly bashing the Trump administration is enjoying justice being served. "Thor: Ragnarok" star Mark Ruffalo called Monday "a very sad day for America."
"If we all weren't so tired of a stream of constant outrages this would have a much more shocking effect on us," Ruffalo said. "It's a new low for our country in an historical context. Probably going to get worse. Hard to celebrate."
According to the indictment, Manafort was able to generate millions of dollars by lobbying for a pro-Russia party in Ukraine and laundered the money through off-shore accounts. The indictment was unsealed once Manafort was told to turn himself into law enforcement.
Some of his charges include conspiracy against the U.S., money laundering, being an unregistered foreign agent and seven counts of failing to file financial reports.
