Here’s a roundup of the most absurd celebrity social media meltdowns of the day. Enjoy!
Actress Sharon Stone, among other celebs, waxed poetic about the online return of 3D-printed gun instructions.

In an era of craziness, an absolutely insane thing to do would be to allow downloadable 3-D printed guns. Would allow ANYONE to legally download plans for an undetectable gun. Call Sec Pompeo @ State Department. Text OMG to 64433. When connected to State dept, press 4.

Oscar-winner Michael Moore offered his followers a candid history lesson (from 2008) about how Democrats didn’t want Barack Obama to use his full name for fear it would hurt his election odds.

We live in a different America now. Ppl will vote for u Abdul because you’re the best candidate! https://t.co/UFJwtqk13x

This Is Us producer Ken Olin praised leftist NBC talker Andrew Mitchell one day after she compared President Trump to mass-murdering Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.
Listening to all the tributes to @mitchellreports today. What a remarkable human being. For 40 years she’s courageously spoken truth to power. And now, even as Trump seeks to undermine our free press, she defiantly remains a shining testament to intelligence, class and integrity.
