For weeks now, we have been completely captivated by the Olympics and, it turns out, so have our favorite stars. Between takes of Simone Biles or Katie Ledecky absolutely dominating their respective sports, we’re keeping a close eye on our social media timelines to see how celebrities are responding to all of the superhuman action. Celebrities: They’re just like us!
For some, like Drake, it’s about offering simple support for home country athletes. For others, like Leslie Jones, the Olympics have seemingly taken over their lives and subsequently (and hilariously, we might add) their timelines. Ah, famous people supporting other famous (but more athletic) people. Keep scrolling for more of our favorite celebrity reactions to the Rio Olympics.

If @TeamUSA was as fearful as Trump, Michael Phelps and Simone Biles would be cowering in the locker room.
America isn’t afraid to compete.

If the object of tennis is to hit the ball into the net and swear a lot, I’m very, very good.
