JK Rowling and a host of other celebrities have condemned Donald Trump over his press conference on Tuesday.
The US President defended his reaction to the incident in Charlottesville, where one woman died after a car was rammed into crowds protesting a far-right rally, in blustering, combative style at Trump Tower in New York City.
Trump appeared to backtrack on his previous condemnation of white supremacy and Neo-Nazis and once again insisted both sides are to blame for the events in Virginia.
While he blasted the alleged perpetrator of the attack, he also attacked the "violent alt-left" who "came charging" at the alt-right in Charlottesville.
While the remarks were met with support by some - notably David Duke, a former KKK leader - they have been widely condemned, not only by key political figures, but by celebrities and members of the general public.
