Celebrities say the debate was 'the worst thing' they've seen, compare it to their most unsuccessful projects

Mark Hamill called it worse than the 'Star Wars Holiday Special'

During the often chaotic debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, celebrities and creatives took to Twitter to compare the broadcast to the worst projects of their career.

All eyes were on the two candidates Tuesday night as moderator Chris Wallace did his best to keep them on topic despite multiple interruptions by Trump. Analysts and journalists largely chided the debate as being nothing more than a slugging match between the two men with little value for already-entrenched voters.

As the debate raged on, several people took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with what they were seeing, which led to the birth of a new meme. Jeremy Slater, who developed Netflix’s popular series “The Umbrella Academy” after writing the much-maligned 2015 “Fantastic Four” movie, took to Twitter to kick the meme off calling the debate “the worst thing I’ve ever seen, and I wrote FANTASTIC FOUR.”

That seemed to start a trend in which celebrities, writers and producers poked fun at their past failures while rebuking the first 2020 presidential debate in the process.
