Celebrities React to Confederate Flag Being Taken Down

Celebrities are speaking out on social media after the Confederate flag was taken down in South Carolina on Friday morning (July 10).

The historic moment came weeks after the Charleston church shooting and lots of pressure on lawmakers to remove the symbol of racism.

The flag was raised above the South Carolina State House back in 1962 to protest the civil rights movement and the state House of Representatives finally voted to take it down on Thursday. Governor Haley signed the measure into law later that day.

See how celebs like President Obama and Kerry Washington are reacting.
