CLEVELAND -- Social media has exploded after news that the Browns traded running back Trent Richardson to the Colts for a 2014 first-round draft pick.

And a lot of Cleveland celebrities are taking to Twitter to sound off as well.

In fact, a few professional Cleveland atheletes have given their opinions in 140 characters or less.

It's an interesting angle, since professional atheletes know that trades come with the territory.

Jason Kipnis, the Indians second basemen, tweeted out: "Is this Trent Richardson trade the real thing??!"

Kipnis, who uses the Twitter handle @TheJK_Kid, followed that tweet up with: "I'm literally confused by this...It seems like a fantasty football trade."

Cleveland Cavaliers player Dion Waiters (aka @dionwaiters3) simply tweeted out: "Trent Richardson got traded???"

Meanwhile, the owner of the Cavs, Dan Gilbert (@cavsdan) tweeted: "Consensus is @browns stockpiling picks for 'franchise' QB in 2014. A bit early for fans to judge this one as painful as it may feel. IMHO"

FYI, "IMHO" stands for: in my humble opinion.

And it's not just those in the atheletic world.

Clevelander and celebrity chef, Michael Symon (@chefsymon) had so much to say, he cut out letters to fit his tweet all in: "wowza...crazy u all know i hated taking tr at #3 but still crazy..if we get the qb we want next yr will all be worth it"

Comedian Drew Carey used a bit of humor for his tweets on the matter: "#Browns fans are invited to root for my #Sounders. Currently in 1st place :) And our last big move was to GET a big player. #Dempsey"

Carey then tweeted out a more serious message: "I offer the Cleveland #Browns best of luck with their 2014 season ticket renewals. They're going to need it."

Whether the trade was the right move, only time will tell.

What we do know now, is that a lot of folks- famous or not, aren't too happy with the Browns.
