Brett Kavanaugh will take his place among the justices of the Supreme Court after a bitter battle that saw him confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 50-to-48 on Saturday. Celebrities Ava DuVernay to Chelsea Handler to Alyssa Milano have since taken to social media to express their outrage.
Ellen DeGeneres tweeted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, “You put yourself through so many and I want you to know it wasn’t in vain. You started a movement and we’ll see it through. If they won’t listen to our voices, then they’ll listen to our vote.” Kathy Griffin summed up the general feeling perfectly with, “What a terrible day in American history.”
