Celebrities Gather At DNC

Susan Sarandon and fellow Hollywood stars gathered outside the Democratic National Convention Wednesday in response to the DNC's alleged efforts to silence Bernie Sanders surrogate and former Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner.

Turner was reportedly dismissed from the convention during the first night after her refusal to endorse Hillary Clinton. She was scheduled to introduce the Vermont senator on Monday evening, but was allegedly blocked from doing so.

Sarandon, joined by Danny Glover, Rosario Dawson and Shailene Woodley, among others, spoke in support of Turner. The celebrities stated that it was unfair to silence a major voice in the Democratic party and that many Bernie supporters are upset.

Turner did make an appearance at the media tent, but did not take the stage. She talked to a large crowd of reporters, saying she was there to thank all of her supporters.

"There are a lot of people that are discouraged," she said walking through the DNC media tent. "I want to keep the supporters knowing that the future's still bright and that there's still complicit energy towards making this work."

"Yesterday, the senator wanted me to be able to put him into nomination and that did not happen," Turner said.

"We're gonna keep moving," she said. "I don't want people to worry about what happened yesterday."
