Celebrities React To David Letterman's Departure From Late Night

People love this guy.

People love this guy.

The stars came out in droves on social media to congratulate legendary comedian David Letterman on an amazing career as he retires from late night after 33 years. He's kind of a big deal. People know him. From movie stars and comedians to athletes and presidents, you don't accumulate this many famous friends and admirers for no reason.

Congratulations to David Letterman, who I now believe is beginning his third career in show business.
