Frozen star Kristen Bell slammed U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump when he tried to use hit Disney film Frozen to shut down his critics.

Kristen Bell blasted Donald Trump after he dragged Disney film Frozen into his anti-semitism row.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee used the animated movie to defend himself after he was criticised for being anti-semitic for tweeting a photo of Hillary Clinton next to a six-pointed star featuring the words “most corrupt candidate ever!” against a backdrop of a pile of $100 bills. The business mogul was then accused of taking the anti-Semitic imagery for the now deleted tweet from a white supremacist message board by the democratic nominee's campaign.

On Wednesday (06Jul16) Trump made light of the furore tweeting a picture of the cover of a Frozen book tie-in which features a star. "Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the ‘Star of David’ also? Dishonest media! #Frozen," he wrote.

However, Kristen who voices the character Anna in the Oscar-winning animated film, fired back at the 70 year-old, telling the former Apprentice star, “Zip it Don & get ur head outta ur (out of your) a**."

The 35-year-old actress then mentioned the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, both black men, who were shot by police on Tuesday (05Jul16) and Wednesday (06Jul16), adding: “We’ve more important things 2 (sic) think abt (about) today #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile."

Kristen, who has two daughters, Lincoln, three, and 18-month-old Delta, with her actor husband Dax Shepard, recently revealed the most important thing she is trying to teach her children is to treat everyone equally.

"I am trying to teach my kids not be stunted by country lines, language barriers, or religious boundaries. And that all human beings, and everyone in the world is part of someone's family and they should be treated as such," she told E! News.

"It's so simple to get caught up in lines that divide us. Why are you different? I think it's important to remind ourselves that we are all the same and everyone is doing the best they can with what they have."
