Hillary Clinton Presidential Bid Fires Up Hollywood, Haters on Social Media

Olivia Wilde, Magic Johnson, Dustin Lance Black are supporters but Susan Sarandon says, “I don’t vote with my vagina”


Moments after Hillary Clinton kicked off her second presidential bid Sunday, Hollywood supporters and haters alike burned up social media with reaction.

Among the first to congratulate the former first lady was her daughter Chelsea Clinton who tweeted, “Very proud of you Mom!”

Chelsea wasn’t the only familiar face throwing their support behind Clinton.

“Let the feisty debates begin! Everyone has a right to their opinion but apathy is for dickheads. #Hillary2016,” wrote “TRON:Legacy” actress Olivia Wilde on Twitter.

R&B singer Ciara kept her reaction short and sweet, tweeting: “EXCITED!!”

While singer-songwriter Moby offered a philosophical response, citing idealism and the tea party.

But not everyone welcomed the news of Clinton’s re-do. Among the less than enthusiastic — Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon, who recently told filmfestivals.com she is no Clinton fan. “I don’t vote with my vagina,” Sarandon said. “If Elizabeth Warren (US Senator, Mass.) came up, I would go that way. She (Hillary Clinton) lost me when she voted for the war without looking.”

A slew of Republicans also jumped on the Clinton bashing bandwagon, including presumptive presidential candidate Jeb Bush who tweeted: “We must do better than Hillary. If you’re committed to stopping her, add your name now.”

The hashtag #WhyImNotVotingForHillary, started by GOP blogger Markeece Young, also trended for several hours.
