The Hollywood actress who voiced the character of Anna in Disney's Frozen blasted Donald Trump on Thursday for taking to Twitter to complain of a Frozen coloring book rather than speaking up on police violence, CNN reported.
Kirsten Bell slammed the Republican presidential candidate for citing Frozen in defense on his controversial Star of David tweet while the U.S. was in uproar following the fatal shooting of two black men by police on Wednesday.
"Zip it Don & get ur head outta ur ass. We've more important things 2 think abt today #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile," Bell tweeted, referring to the two men who were shot to death.
Trump had earlier tweeted "Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the 'Star of David' also? Dishonest media! #Frozen," accompanied by a photo showing a star-shaped element on a Frozen book cover.
The use of force by law enforcement against African-Americans in cities from Ferguson, Missouri, to Baltimore and New York has come under heavy scrutiny.
On Wednesday, Philando Castile was fatally shot by police near St. Paul, Minnesota, a day after Alton Sterling was shot to death by police in Louisiana.
On Saturday, an African American man shot and killed five Dallas police officers and wounded seven others. He was described as an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan and a follower of black militant groups on social media.
Last Saturday, Trump tweeted an image of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton with a Star of David and a pile of cash, which was later revealed to have been created by American supremacists.
