Stars react to the Georgia U.S. Senate race results

In the wake of Georgia’s Jan. 5, 2021, runoff election for its two U.S. Senate seats, Hollywood stars and other celebrities took to social media to react as votes came in — and as it looked more and more likely that the Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, had bested incumbent Kelly Loeffler, a Republican, to become the state’s first-ever Black senator… and that Democrat Jon Ossoff was leading in his race against Republican incumbent David Perdue. See what they had to say, starting with this movie star… “Sometimes things don’t want to stay the same. My hope is the Dems and Republicans can use all that s*** energy towards each other and focus on weeding out all the extremists. Start to build the country back up. The people have spoken.” –Josh Brolin
