Refresh for updates… Given her popularity in Hollywood, it’s no shock that the entertainment industry was fast and fervent in its reaction to Hillary Clinton’s speech accepting the Democratic Party nomination for president. Her address came as the climax to a week of partying – and some dissent from supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders – that saw President Obama, former President (and Hillary’s husband) Bill Clinton, Senator Bernie Sanders, celebs like Scandal‘s Tony Goldwyn, even the likes of Michael Bloomberg touting her fitness for the office. But tonight it was a victory lap for the former First Lady and Senator as she took the nomination. And online, a common refrain was to note the historic significance of Clinton’s nomination, the first woman in American history to reach this point. President Obama naturally joined in the praise, along with erstwhile opponent Bernie Sanders. Of course, there were plenty of jokes and plenty of nods from the faithful – and plenty of critics weighing in as well. Here’s some social media reactions – Deadline will update as more arrive.
