Brrr! Kristen Bell was not amused that Donald Trump dragged Disney’s Frozen into his Star of David controversy.

“Zip it Don & get ur head outta ur ass,” the 35-year-old actress, who voices Anna in the Oscar-winning animated film, wrote in a chilly tweet on Thursday, July 7.

“We’ve more important things 2 think abt today #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile,” she added, pointing out the outrage over the back-to-back shooting deaths by police of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, both black men, on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee had tweeted a photo of a Frozen activity book that featured a six-pointed star on its cover on Wednesday, July 6, and asked, “Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the ‘Star of David’ also? Dishonest media! #Frozen”

The backlash over his use of the star began over the weekend when the business mogul tweeted a photo of Hillary Clinton next to a six-pointed star featuring the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” The backdrop for the image in the since-deleted tweet was pile of $100 bills. Many quickly accused the former Apprentice star, 70, of using anti-Semitic imagery.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign responded with harsh words on Monday. “Donald Trump’s use of a blatantly anti-Semitic image from racist websites to promote his campaign would be disturbing enough, but the fact that it’s now part of a pattern should give voters major cause for concern,” Sarah Bard, the campaign’s director of Jewish outreach, said in a statement to The New York Times.

Trump fought back in a statement, saying, “These false attacks by Hillary Clinton trying to link the Star of David with a basic star, often used by sheriffs … is ridiculous.”

Though the businessman deleted the tweet featuring the controversial imagery, he later retweeted an altered image that replaced the star with a circle.
