For much of the Occupy Wall Street movement, many celebrities have remained quiet and stayed away from voicing their opinions.

The pattern seems to continue Tuesday night/Wednesday morning as the Los Angeles Police Department begins to raid Occupy L.A. 

Here's a look at the few celebrities who are following the movement in Los Angeles.

Former “The Talk” co-host Holly Robinson Peete (@hollyrpeete)

#occupyLA about to get shut down right now... 24 buses filled with police in riot gear headed downtown now... hope everyone stays safe”

 Filmmaker Jason Pollock (@jason_pollock)

“Local news in LA is total police propaganda right now. They should say on-air, "brought to you by the LAPD." #OccupyLA

David Spade (@davidspade)

"#occupyla . 99% of the protesters are from the news. Filming one guy”

Jack Osbourne (@MrJackO)

“doesnt getting arrested only bleed more money out of our bankrupt city? seems a little counter productive. #justathought #occupyLA

Cloris Leachman (@Cloris_Leachman)

"Thought about visiting #occupyla last night, but didn't want to get pepper sprayed. Also avoided Walmart for the same reason."
