The stars are speaking out amid a heated political race in the United States.
According to major news network projections, Rev. Raphael Warnock has won one of the two Senate seats up for grabs in the state over Senator Kelly Loeffler, a historic win as Georgia’s first Black senator.
The second race is still too close to call, between Republican senator David Perdue and Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff. Both seats are needed for Democrats to take control of the Senate.
Many celebrities are now speaking out about the results, with many celebrating the work specifically of Stacey Abrams in mobilizing voters in the state, as well as some mocking Mitch McConnell for losing control of the Senate.
See the reactions inside…

Georgia missed out on having Stacey Abrams as a governor, but because Kemp disenfranchised thousands of voters, it set off her mission to get as many people to vote as possible. It secured the presidential election and the senate. When one door closed, she knocked the door down.
