Many celebs took to social media to mock Spicer.

Spicer apologized for his comments later on Tuesday.

"Today I was trying to describe the attack that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad made on his own people using chemical weapons," Spicer told Fox News. "Frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, to which there is frankly no comparison.

"Obviously, that is not what I was intending to do. And I — especially during this week [Passover] — regret using that term and apologize and hope that we can focus on the president's decisive action that he took to make sure that we deal with the situation in Syria."
