The actor who plays Sulu in the "Star Trek" film series may regret his latest Tweet.
Celebrities tweet the darndest things.
Just ask Joss Whedon, who further dinged his credibility by predicting the Trump administration would soon round up, and kill, gay people if we didn’t stop him first.
Not to be outdone, actor John Cho rose up Monday with a Tweet that could be just as inane. Cho is best known for the “Harold and Kumar” trilogy as well as playing Lt. Sulu in three “Star Trek” features.
It’s clear he’s part of The Resistance, too. That rag tag band of liberals aghast at Donald Trump’s presidency may not want to claim him after this Tweet.
It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment Trump has created and what happened on that @united flight.

Naturally, Twitter users piled. It’s what happens when you don’t thoroughly think through a social media message before hitting ‘send.” The results weren’t pretty. Some, though, were rather funny. Consider the following 13 responses as being either snarky, comical or just plain withering.
So Trump is responsible for the actions of a United Airlines decision and the actions of a Chicago (run by Democrats) police officer? RLY? – @bob_owens
Trump is an incompetent dolt and can alter the behavior of private airline employees AT THE SAME TIME.- @hale_razor
You just pulled the rare “Double Sulu” maneuver. It’s like the Triple Lindy of tweeting. I stand in awe – @G130J
Did you warm up before you made that stretch? – @TimBowers62
And here I was, ready to blame @WilliamShatner, but I apparently had it all backwards! – @SantasTavern
But of course…of course. For a minute there I thought you were going to do the typical liberal thing and blame it on #climatechange..phew! – @2_legion
What about Putin? Are you sure he had nothing to do with it? – @ostriana
It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment the Klingons created and what happened on the Death Star – @rnavarro2003
This is the nonsense that destroys the credibility of legitimate opposition to Trump. – @LtningSams
shorter: my hatred for Trump can be seen from space – @amadora2700
Great career move John u just hacked off 50% of trek fan base to be hip, out of touch, divisive and political. #liberallogic #maga – @HuttonPulitzer
It’s hard not to see a connection between dumb things actors say & what movies I won’t be watching – @StarFortress
It’s hard not to see a connection between your tweet and the Internet mocking you – @exjon
