Celebrities Stand in Solidarity Against Bigotry in Charlottesville Aftermath

Written by  Complex

Whether you're an average citizen on the ground or a member of the rich and famous watching the world from afar, it's hard to ignore the events taking place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend.

When bigots try to intimidate fellow Americans into hiding, it's a cause that unites everyone else, regardless of what their background is.

That's one thing to take solace in during these trying times. Some of your favorite celebrities decided they would not remain silent after watching someone run over innocent civilians with a car, and they took to social media to speak out against the injustices taking place.

Understandably, some people couldn't even think about the sociopolitical implications of the protests, and instead choose to focus on the inherent sadness of the situation.

?Crazy day filled with hate. What is wrong with people?
