Donald Trump and actor Patrick Wilson have very different views on the 'Nightly News' anchor's punishment.

Brian Williams will be gone from the NBC Nightly News desk for half a year, and a number of media personalities are offering their opinions on Twitter.

Williams, who had voluntarily stepped away Saturday from hosting the show for an unspecified number of days, has been suspended without pay for six months. He is in hot water after telling a false story about a 2003 helicopter ride in Iraq, for which he has apologized on air.

Here is what celebrities and public figures are tweeting about this latest development.
