While hackers are threatening to unleash customer data from adultery dating service Ashley Madison, Hollywood stars, comedians and media personalities are unleashing their best jokes on Twitter.

Andy Richter, Ike Barinholtz and Rob Delaney are among the funny people doing what they do best by having fun with what could very well be a serious issue for 37 million Ashley Madison users.

“Forget Ashley Madison, I’m worried they’ll hack FarmersOnly.com! If they find out I’m not a real farmer I’ll be ruined,” the “Conan” sidekick tweeted on Monday.

According to multiple media reports,┬áhackers have already posted some data and are threatening to release all Ashley Madison’s customer records if the website isn’t shut down.

“We were recently made aware of an attempt by an unauthorized party to gain access to our systems,” Avid Life Media, the parent company of Ashley Madison, said in a statement. “At this time, we have been able to secure our sites, and close the unauthorized access points. We are working with law enforcement agencies, which are investigating this criminal act.”

Here are some of the best reactions TheWrap found on social media.
