Bernie Sanders supporters descended upon Hillary Clinton’s Facebook page Friday amid a massive war between the two campaigns involving the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

The Sanders fans are accusing Clinton and the DNC of being un-democratic as talk swirls that Sanders might run as an independent. Clinton and Sanders are meeting in New Hampshire Saturday for a weekend night debate.

The DNC banned the Sanders campaign from accessing its computerized voter data after it was revealed that a Sanders digital staffer looked at private Clinton campaign information by exploiting a glitch in the system. In response, Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said that the campaign is going to sue the DNC in federal court.

Meanwhile, hundreds and potentially thousands of Sanders supporters are swooping into social media to let Hillary Clinton “feel the Bern” in the comments sections on her most recent posts. On a Spanish-language post mocking Republican 2016 candidates through Star Wars comparisons, the top dozen comments and beyond are pro-Sanders and anti-DNC.
