Justice Anthony Kennedy announced Wednesday (June 27) that he will be retiring from the Supreme Court after 30 years of service. As expected, the Twittersphere quickly flooded with contrasting opinions about the news, especially because the retirement is coming at such a sensitive time in United States history.  While conservatives have generally expressed excitement over the opportunity for President Donald Trump to elect a new Justice, liberals are concerned that abortion and LGBTQ rights could be at risk.

Countless celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their opinions on the topic, including singer-songwriter Hayley Kiyoko, pop icon Cher and Bernie Sanders. See the tweets below.
