Celebrity Twitter Reactions to Roger Ebert's Death

The famed movie critic lost his battle with cancer. See how Hollywood reacted to the great loss

World-renowned film critic Roger Ebert has died on April 4 after a long battle with cancer, confirms his long-time employer, the Chicago Sun-Times. He was 70 years old.

Ebert had just announced yesterday that his cancer had returned and he would be taking a "leave of prescence" from his film reviews. "It really stinks that the cancer has returned and that I have spent too many days in the hospital," he wrote on his blog. "So on bad days I may write about the vulnerability that accompanies illness. On good days, I may wax ecstatic about a movie so good it transports me beyond illness."

Ebert was beloved by Hollywood and fans around the world -- and many of them immediately took to social media to mourn. See some of the celebrity Twitter reactions to the heartbreaking news.
