Ebola Diagnosed in New York: Hollywood Reacts Hilariously

"If the bowling ball had no symptoms, you're fine"

It's official: a case of Ebola was diagnosed in New York City on Thursday, sending Hollywood's best tweeters into hilarious hysterics.

After Dr. Craig Spencer tested positive for the virus and was quarantined at Bellevue Hospital, New York mayor Bill de Blasio and governor Andrew Cuomo noted Spencer's recent whereabouts during a press conference that evening: visiting the High Line, taking the subway, riding an Uber and going bowling in Williamsburg. (On the same night of the diagnosis, Questlove had a DJ gig and had to clarify that he was not spinning at the same Brooklyn bowling alley.)

Though the two emphasized that it was unlikely that even those who came in contact with the doctor would be affected by the virus, his activity over the past few days — and how the public is outrageously reacting to the news — made for effective punch lines from the likes of Mia Farrow, Jenny Slate and Billy Eichner, while others had a more serious reaction online.
