In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Jewish celebrities took to Twitter to express their feelings about Frankenstorm. Larry King said, “I lived in Miami for 20 years, lived through many hurricanes — never ever seen anything like #Sandy this is a horror story #frankenstorm.”
B.J. Novak, of NBC’s “The Office,” was more encouraging: “I know it’s tough now, New York, but picture yourself next summer, lying on a warm, calm beach, with nothing to remind you of Sandy.”
Debra Messing was thankful: “Thanks for all the concerned tweets … Thank goodness we are all okay … Thinking of those who aren’t #sandy”. Bette Midler got political: “The gentleman who was going to address us about climate change is unable to attend due to CLIMATE CHANGE!!”
Comedians were able to joke about things: Jerry Seinfeld, “Anyone in NYC named ‘Sandy’ going to be getting dirty looks for a while. #callmeSanford”; Seth Meyers, “Every time I go outside to see how bad #Sandy is I see someone confidently walking a tiny dog.”
And NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire, who has Jewish roots in his family, used Instagram to show a photo of his Range Rover underwater.
