Even celebrity folk have heard just about enough from 2016, thank you very much.
As the year drew to a close, Jaimie Alexander, Patton Oswalt and other notable names took to Twitter to bid farewell to a year that has already taken such pop icons as David Bowie, Prince and George Michael. Tuesday brought news of the death of “Star Wars” heroine Carrie Fisher.
“I can’t take much more of 2016,” Alexander, star of NBC’s “Blindspot,” wrote, summing up the view of many.
Here are a few other choice words for the departing year from some celebrity Twitter accounts:
2016 is like Steve Martin in The Jerk, grabbing our favorite things on its way out the door.
At 11:59pm on December 31, we’ll all get a text alert from an unknown source that just says “THE ARISTOCRATS!” and 2016 will make sense.

I swear to God, if the next RIP isn't for 2016, I'm going to lose it. Just be done you sick, vindictive son a bitch.
