  • "I used to have a massive crush on Vince Vaughn. Now I just want to barf 🤮"
  • "Shaking the hand of the man who colluded w/foreign leaders against his own country, instituted a law that lead to kidnapping & deaths of young children, recklessly brought America near to war & resulted in the deaths of 176 ppl shot down in retaliation, @VinceVaughn ... #Complicit"
  • "This sucks."

There were also myriad comments supporting Vaughn and rebuking those who were lambasting the actor, including this top reply:
