On Monday, the Senate failed to pass gun control proposals in the wake of the mass shooting in a gay nightclub and the shooting of “The Voice” singer Christina Grimmie both in Orlando earlier this month. Now, celebrities are reacting to the news and posting angry tweets on their personal accounts.

There were four proposed measures for gun control, any of which would’ve made it harder for potential terrorists and mentally ill persons to acquire guns through expanded background checks and other additional measures. None of them got the required 60 votes to pass, presumably due to ongoing gridlock blocking bipartisan efforts.

Check out some celebrity tweets that went viral after the results came out:

“The foolishness and heartlessness coming from our Congress re: gun control is not surprising, but still so very disappointing and shameful. You don’t get to talk ‘tough on terror’ if you’re too afraid of the NRA to do anything about guns. You’re a coward. We have to vote the GOP out of leadership of both House & Senate to get anything done on guns. Please vote in November.” – John Legend

“The Senate rejected all four gun control measures that were up for consideration on Monday. F*ck you, Senate.” – Alyssa Milano

“If u voted against this its because you’re a greedy selfish NRA suckling f*ck. How am I the godless one? Get a moral compass.” – Sarah Silverman

“The Senate just voted 2 block gun safety reforms inspired by the Orlando massacre. If you’re not outraged, you’re not a human being. This is insanity.” – Billy Eichner

“Every senator who voted down the gun terror vote, please tell me what hell feel likes when u get there. Wondering if it’s as hot as they say.” – Josh Gad

“My thoughts & prayers are with the @SenateGOP for the ballot box bloodbath coming their way.”- Gerry Dugan retweeted by Andy Cohen, who added, “Well said!!!!!!”

“[List of Senators who voted against the proposals] We will remember.” – Judd Apatow

“[List of Senators who voted against the proposals] A list of who cares about this country and who doesn’t.” – Ellen Pompeo
