Hollywood stars were eager to share their views after Betsy DeVos' nomination for education secretary was confirmed by the Senate on Tuesday.
Many celebrities, including some who went to private school or have kids in private school, took to Twitter to express their concern that DeVos would be the end of the public school system.
"Avengers" director Joss Whedon went as far as to say the GOP has "declared war on our children."
Comedian Chelsea Handler tweeted, "Betsy DeVos has been confirmed as Education Secretary. So now the entire public education system is basically Trump University" before adding (as she often does) "F--k Pence."

I wouldn't trust Betsy Devos with my dry cleaning. This is a very sad day. The @GOP are such money grubbing cowards. Shameful.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) February 7, 2017
Betsy DeVos confirmed. What is also confirmed is that there is not one single man of courage in the Republican Congress.— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) February 7, 2017

Betsy Devos got confirmed. Everyone who voted for her should be ashamed. Party before country. They're using children's education as pawns.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) February 7, 2017
