Celebrities who vocally sit in one of two camps on who should be President of the United States have been brutal in their criticism of the presidential debate.

Scores of celebrities took to Twitter during the fiery event, which was labelled a “s**tshow” by actress Kirstie Alley and CNN’s Dana Bash.

While Alley has previously expressed support for Donald Trump and disdain for Joe Biden, the debate left her divided.

“Don’t either of you take a bow.. it was idiotic and embarrassing,” she tweeted.

She said she had learned nothing from either side in the debate, labelling it a “total waste of time” and the “dumbest debate in history”.

Vocal anti-Trump supporters, Hulk star Mark Ruffalo, singer Bette Midler, comedians Sarah Silverman and Rosie McDonnell, and actresses Kerry Washington, Alyssa Milano, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Emmy Rossum, weighed in with their thoughts on social media.

Silverman labelled Mr Trump “disrespectful” after he continually cut off Mr Biden.

The debate turned ugly when Mr Biden told Mr Trump to “shut up” because he kept pestering him to answer a question about the Supreme Court’s future.

Ruffalo said Mr Trump showed he had no leadership qualities.

“He has shown that all he can do is denigrate and lie,” he wrote on Twitter.

“You can’t debate insanity. We have a lot coming our way and we need a leader who can hold it together under pressure not blow his stack.”

Milano unsurprisingly declared Biden had won.

“Nobody cares about these stale accusations (from Mr Trump), people want to know how they are going to put food on the table and stay healthy,” she wrote.

Trump’s Democratic rival from 2016 Hillary Clinton also weighed in with a cheeky response on Twitter during the debate.

Writer Jill Filipovic took to Twitter to say Mr Biden delivered the “line of the night”.

“I so feel for Hillary right now because I’m positive she wanted to say (shut up) and couldn’t,” she said.

“You have no idea,” Ms Clinton responded.

Midler – who has long been a critic of the President – labelled Mr Trump “utterly disgusting”.

Scandal actress Washington and Bring It On star Gabrielle Union joked they needed alcohol to get them through the debate, while Shameless actress Rossum said she had loaded up on carbohydrates for the event.

“There’s not enough wine in the whole wide world,” Washington said.

Mr Trump’s celebrity supporters in turn piled it on Mr Biden for his performance.

“Donald Trump is a blood and guts gladiator. Joe Biden is a tired old husk,” actor James Woods tweeted.

Actor Randy Quaid, brother of Dennis, said Mr Biden had lost the left.

Black American live-stream video bloggers, Diamond and Silk, who call themselves Mr Trump’s “most loyal supporters”, said Mr Biden had never done anything great for America.
