Celebrities such as Cardi B, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Gad, and Piers Morgan have slammed pro-Trump protestors for storming the US Capitol Building.

A US Congress hearing to certify Joe Biden as president was halted on Wednesday after Donald Trump supporters forced their way into the building.

Vice President Mike Pence was rushed away from the Capitol to a safe location, with senators being evacuated to safety through underground tunnels.

As the scenes played out live, Avengers star Mark Ruffalo tweeted: ‘This is a coup attempt on behalf of Trump and his complicit allies. This is All on Trump and his administration. The cowards in the GOP must be held accountable. #CoupAttempt

He continued: ‘Imagine if this was our side. There would be rivers of our blood in the streets and not a single one of us would be armed. This has been allowed. #CoupAttempt.’

Journalist Piers Morgan wrote: ‘My god.. Trump supporters have stormed the US Capitol building. Never seen anything like this… scary situation, all driven by President @realDonaldTrump’s insane behaviour & rhetoric. Shameful.’

In another tweet, he added: ‘Your violent thugs are launching a coup at the US Capitol, @realDonaldTrump and it’s all on YOU and your horrific antics since losing the election. Stop this madness now before it ends in tragedy.’

The Good Morning Britain presenter then added: ‘Send in the military. Now. #USCapitol.’

Elsewhere Frozen star Josh Gad wrote: This is either a dereliction of duty by the Capital Police or a complicit desire to not plan for the known threat of chaos today.

‘Either way, this is inexcusable. If you can be prepared for imaginary ANTIFA protestors, you had no business not prepping for these actual terrorists.’

President Trump did not condemn the protests in a tweet sent afterwards, writing: ‘ Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!’
