Celebrity supporters of Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign blasted FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges be brought against Hillary Clinton after an investigation revealed that she sent classified materials held on private email servers during her tenure as Secretary of State.

Among the stars who took to Twitter Tuesday to air their frustration were longtime Sanders backers Rosario Dawson and actor Mark Ruffalo.

Dawson, who has joined Sanders on the campaign trail, tweeted, “The #SystemIsRigged indeed,” echoing language used earlier in the day by presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.


Ruffalo, an ardent Sanders supporter, simply said: “We’re in trouble.”

Commenting on comments Comey made during his live announcement, Late Night host Seth Myers said “Extremely Careless vs. Supremely Reckless!”

Filmmaker, actor and occasional political pundit Rob Reiner used the occasion to attack Trump.

“Now that email investigation is behind us, can we focus on keeping the lying, racist, misogynistic fraud out of White House,” Reiner’s tweet read.

Actress Shailene Woodley said the outcome of the FBI’s months-long investigation made her “sick.”

“[L]ike possessing marijuana. this sh*t makes me sick. it’s not about HRC. it’s about equality amongst all,” Woodley tweeted.

Mia Farrow also chimed in to mock Clinton, writing: “Suddenly six servers does seem excessive I’ll get rid of 5.”
