Chrissy Teigen, Andy Cohen, Bette Midler and more celebrities are tweeting in celebration of President Donald Trump’s permanent suspension from Twitter.

On Friday, Twitter announced it had banned Trump’s account, claiming the decision was made to reduce the risk of “further incitement to violence”.

This came just days after the 74-year-old politician’s supporters rioted through the US Capitol building.

While the president had more than 88.7 million followers, John Legend’s wife (35) made it clear she would not miss his presence by tweeting a representation of hysterical laughter.

“AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHH,” wrote Teigen, who was previously blocked by Trump on Twitter.

The humorous reaction earned the Cravings cookbook author more than 166 300 likes and 15 100 retweets within a few hours. MailOnline
