Celebrities had a meltdown Wednesday night after Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as the next attorney general.
Performers like Sophia Bush, Sandra Bernhard, Chris Evans and others in Hollywood reacted via Twitter with “disgrace” and anger after the Senate voted 52-47 to confirm Sessions’ appointment. (RELATED: Celebrities Blast Donald Trump’s ‘Un-American’ Immigration Ban During Awards Show)
