Ebola In New York: Celebrity Tweets

It’s official: a case of Ebola was diagnosed in New York City on Thursday, sending Hollywood’s best tweeters into hilarious hysterics. THR: ‘After Dr. Craig Spencer tested positive for the virus and was quarantined at Bellevue Hospital, New York mayor Bill de Blasio and governor Andrew Cuomo noted Spencer’s recent whereabouts during a press conference that evening: visiting the High Line, taking the subway, riding an Uber and going bowling in Williamsburg. Though the two emphasized that it was unlikely that even those who came in contact with the doctor would be affected by the virus, his activity over the past few days — and how the public is outrageously reacting to the news — made for effective Twitter punch lines from the likes of Mia Farrow (pictured: and what’s with those lips?), Jenny Slate and Billy Eichner, while others had a more serious reaction online.’
