osama bin laden deadCelebrities took to the Internet last night via Twitter to comment on the death of Osama bin Laden. From comedians to reality stars, there was no shortage of opinions.

Listed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List as Usama Bin Laden, the terrorist was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, by US Navy Seals Sunday. Arguably, the bigger news may be how most of America found out.
