Meanwhile, other entertainment industry figures mock the amount of attention, time and money spent on the case, with Seth Meyers writing, "Despite being a Steelers fan I am genuinely happy the suspension was overturned. Even happier our tax dollars paid for it!"

Hollywood reacted to Thursday's news of Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension being overturned with lots of sarcasm, including at least one classic "I'm happy to see something finally work out in Tom Brady's life" comment about the four-time Super Bowl winner.

Late Night host Seth Meyers, SNL's Colin Jost and Parks and Recreation's Mike Schur were among those who posted multiple tweets about the news, with Meyers joking, "Despite being a Steelers fan I am genuinely happy the suspension was overturned. Even happier our tax dollars paid for it!"

But Meyers also made it clear he was rooting against Brady in next Thursday's opener, with Jost saying something similar: "Now I want the Patriots to go 0-4 and [backup quarterback Jimmy] Garoppolo starts game 5."

Meanwhile Rob Lowe called for an end to "The institutional, systematic, covert and overt persecution of Pretty Boys."

But some of the harshest remarks were saved for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, with Adam McKay saying that with the judge's decision, the NFL commissioner "moves up 7 spots on the incompetent rankings." Keith Olbermann and Bill Simmons, who was suspended by ESPN after making disparaging remarks about Goodell last fall, bashed his response to the decision on Twitter. Both Olbermann and Simmons have since left ESPN.

Read on to see what else Hollywood is saying about the Deflategate decision.
