Our five fave celeb reactions to Pope's election

In the excitement over Pope Francis being elected, some stars couldn't help but tweet a few tongue-in-cheek reactions.

As the white smoke signaled that Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was the new leader of the Catholic Church, actors like Seth Rogen and Kristen Bell, TV personalities like Carson Daly, and even writer Joyce Carol Oates gave their own pithy responses.

Here are our favorite responses - if you spotted one that we didn't include, share it in the comments!

    Corporations and organizations which cover up child abuse should be rendered defunct. How can we applaud, or even accept it as normality, the election of a leader whose beliefs and teachings include hate?

    CNN did not of course print the more OBSCENE quotes from more liberal fantatic celebs. I hardly ever go to the movies anymore. They disgust me.

    Carson Daly thank you for showing respect and integrity when commenting on the Pope. The other's listed could take a lesson from you .

      I agree. Whenever I read things like this I always remember a song called Be Not Afraid. There is a verse of the song that says, "and if wicked men insult and hate you all because of me, Blessed, Blessed are you."

    People who don't believe, or don't understand, always have negative things to say about this kind of thing. It's really sad.

    Yet, no one really cares what non-believers think. Asking an Anti-Catholic person to comment on the Election of a new Holy Father, Is like asking Adolf Hitler to comment on the opening of a new Jewish Temple. What answer do you think you are going to get?

    What ignorant people.

    I am a proud of being Catholic and happy for Pope Francis I. I think the comments are rude and distasteful. This is a wonderful experience. Why make such comments. Maybe you shouldn't comment at all. I wish many good things for Pope Francis I. May God Bless him always!!

      They are all very rude and distasteful! What else do you expect from anyone in Hollywood these days! They are also arrogant, narcisstic and disrespectful. If you don't embrace their Hollywood liberalism – then you are nothing. And they basically hate the Roman Catholic Church, so why not go after the new Pope. Unfortunately, as much digging as the press is doing to destroy this man – the press is is having a difficult time finding anything but good things to report about him.

      Maybe the Hollywood liberals would all do themselves justice if they looked up the word "humble" and acted on it.

      No one. As fast as it would come on 1 of the news channels I'd switch to another & low & behold...there was that bird again. All I wanted was to have my cup of coffee, some news, & start my day, bird free. As the Stones would say, "You can't always get what you want". 🙂

      Please enlighten us as to the appropriate time to show respect for an organization run by old men in dresses who beg for people's money so they can spend it on giant golden palaces and PR spin campaigns for pedophiles.
