James Woods uses Twitter to help families find Camp Fire survivors


James Woods has won acclaim playing villainous characters in films and TV, and more recently he’s become a villain to liberals for regularly going on Twitter to trumpet his conservative politics and his support for President Trump.

But on Thursday, the sometimes controversial actor played the role of a hero that people from all political viewpoints could embrace. He turned his Twitter account, @RealJamesWoods, into a site to help families search for loved ones missing in the devastating Camp fire in Butte County.

Tens of thousands of residents raced Thursday to escape the deadly wildfire which had burned 20,000 acres, destroyed thousands of structures in Paradise and was only 20 percent contained as of Thursday night.

Starting around 1 p.m. Thursday, Woods, 71, reposted the tweet of someone looking for their handicapped father, spreading the message to his 1.84 million Twitter followers, the Redding Record Searchlight reported.

This took my breath away. Let’s find these people. Please put any info regarding lost love ones on @Twitter and add this hashtag in the body of your tweet. Then I and my many followers will retweet. pic.twitter.com/gEej3YbXHC

What followed was an influx of heart-wrenching tweets from people looking for family members, or for pets.

Woods was back at it early Friday morning, sharing a photo from someone looking for his grandparents and from a woman looking for her mother-in-law who didn’t make it out of the community of Magalia safely with other relatives.
