Eli Roth - Stars React To Wall Street Protest Clearance

Stars including Eli Roth, Tom Morello and Kathy Griffin have taken to the internet to express their shock after police swooped on the Occupy Wall Street camp in New York in a bid to clear out the protesters.
The demonstrators hit headlines back in September (11) when they took up residence in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park to protest against corporate greed, and the campaign has gained celebrity supporters including Russell Brand, Kanye West and Jay Z.
Officers of the New York Police department raided the park in the early hours of Tuesday morning (15Nov11) in a bid to evict the protesters, with officials declaring the camp "poses an increasing health and fire safety hazard".
A number of stars have now taken to Twitter.com to share their opinion on the unfolding drama, which was witnessed by comedienne Kathy Griffin during a late night walk around the city.
She writes, "Whoa! On my late nite (sic) Nyc walk. Passed Zuccotti Park, saw a large group of people running. Nypd walking in formation in riot gear."
Rage Against The MAChine star Morello, who recently performed for a group of 'Occupy' protesters in London, writes, "Nypd is raiding Liberty Square right now! Occupy Wall Street," while model/actress Milla Jovovich expressed her outrage: "Wtf (what the f**k)!!! (You) have got 2 B (sic) kidding me!"
Actor/director Eli Roth kept a close eye on news coverage of the event and gave his Twitter.com followers regular updates.
He writes, "A real life horror movie is unfolding in Nyc as police tear apart Ows camp... All the anger against corruption has pitted Nyc's finest against its citizens. It's all so painful to watch from afar. Stay strong Nyc..."
He later added, "Goodnight all. Hope Nyc's still standing when I wake up. Be safe Nyc."
