Celebrity Parents React To The Death Of Osama Bin Laden

Following last night’s (May 1) presidential address and announcement that Osama Bin Laden has been killed in Pakistan – nearly ten years after 2001’s 9/11 tragedy – celebrity moms and dads took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

@davidarquette They are singing the Star Spangled Banner and The Beatles “Na Na Na Na Goodbye”

@RobLowe At ground zero now. Everyone together. No separate religions or political parties. Just people. Americans together; proud.

@PadmaLakshmi Bin Laden is dead. Thank you to our brave soldiers.

@vanderjames Amidst all the chants of “USA”, let’s recognize that removing #Osama is a victory in the fight for human dignity. And that war ain’t over…

@ActuallyNPH Everyone is sitting around my living room, mouths agape. Wow, what a night. Thank you, Mr. President, for such an eloquent speech.

@Bethenny Wow.osama bin laden is dead.that will make people sleep better at night.monster.

@kellybensimon Mornin. Bin laden is dead, but al queda is still alive. Thoughts?

@JIMCARREY Wow! They killed the Boogieman! I felt something was in the air tonight! Bin Laden era over! S’next? ?;^•

@charliesheen Dead or Alive. WE PREFER DEAD! Well done SEAL team! AMERICA: #WINNING that’s how we roll

@drewbrees So they have Bin Laden’s body. Never thought we’d see the day. Figured he would be like Hitler and commit suicide or just disappear

@brookeburke We just finished watching President Obama speak. crazy to have been in the East wing just yesterday. feels scary, but feels like closure… Wondering how I will address the issues with my kids…

    While this is incredibly amazing news it’s really a stretch by this site to blog about it. I mean no one even mentions their children.

    Nonetheless such an incredible day for all. The unflagging efforts of the Clinton/ Bush administrations have been carried out into the Obama presidency. Great team effort no matter which side you support.

    Brooke Burke is the only one that mentions children.

    Politically aside this was a great thing for our nation. Thanks to Obama for the continuing efforts to push forward and find Bin Laden. I kinda wish we found him alive though, brought him to the US, and just let the American people have their way with him! an eye for an eye is how I see fit!! But dead is good too! Doesn’t mean it’s over though. You’ll be addressing these issues w/ your kids for a long time Brooke, and hopefully though we’ll never see another 911 in our lifetime.

    I think Osama was a monster, but to smile is too soon. The clock is ticking. Blood is washed usually with blood, as u know. So if we say A, we must espect somebody to hear a sound. Its too late to be happy. What we must do now is to be scared. To kill means to be killed. I hate Osama but… im not sure that to kill is the best way to loose problems. I am not proud with any sugestions, but im not proud to kill even who deserves it. I would looked for anouther way to answer. But…its not up to me.

      I am sorry you make absolutely no sense at all! This is indeed a positive and shows that efforts of the Bush administration at GITMO ( which is how they found his location) was not in vain.

      Thank goodness Obama followed through with the battle. My brother in law was killed in Afghanistan on April 24, 2006. We do not regret his service at all and there is such a thing as a JUST killing especially when the devil was responsible for hundreds of thousands of innocent deaths. Now specialist RF JOHNSON will not have lost his life for nothing.

      • vivien leigh

        I am not saying its negative, but not positive, cause i look in the future and not just now. And what i see? More blood, what else. But its NOT negative, its the best invited solution of this problem FOR NOW.

      “but im not proud to kill even who deserves it. I would looked for anouther way to answer. But…its not up to me.”

      Yes maybe if we just invited the man to tea and explained how we were not happy with his actions he may just have said “oh I did not realize…it won’t happen again!”. Give me a break. Killing him was the only answer.

      He was not like hitler or Mussolini who controlled an organized state. With their deaths you actually solved the origination of the evilness. BIN LADEN was the leader of a radical ideology, killing him sent a message that while we cannot logically contain this terrorism we will not tolerate any infringement on our freedoms or democracy.

        Exactly right.

        Vivienne Leigh where do you come from?

        • vivien leigh

          Its not your business where i come from. But its my business if Osamas terrorism will continue to OUR world, cause to kill means to espect an answer. I am coming from OUR world. To same world where you and me live together. So, i dont think if we kill, we must espect peace and be happy. U follow? Im not so clever to know what was better to do, but the terrorists will answer somehow, dont espect something else. If you kill, dont espect peace. I am wondering what are u all happy for, dont u think our children can be in danger now? And point 2: i am wondering what are u all especting now after killing? Peace? Thats not the way to stop terrorism: war.

      • vivien leigh

        1. ALL I WANT IS PEACE.
        2. I am happy that he is dead.
        3. I am just a little scared, thats all. Like Churchill said: nothing better is invited as the demecracy- nothing better is invited as to kill Osama and i know it.
        4. But: I am afraid that with a provocation the terror will be continued, thats all, i dont say it was wrong but i say it was not the poerfect solution, cause it not provocate peace. It will end in more blood.
        I just dont want a second 11.09. All i am saying is: i am happy but afraid too. U follow?

    David Arquette, I know you were born after the Beatles broke up, but come on! Even today’s teenagers know that is not a Beatles song.
