The likes of Olivia Wilde and Janelle Monae mourn a woman's death at the white supremacist rally while LeBron James, Emmy Rossum and Seth Rogen slam President Donald Trump.

AceShowbiz - Celebrities spoke out against white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that left a woman named Heather Heyer killed and many other people injured. "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention," read Heyer's last post on Facebook before her tragic death. Heyer, a paralegal, was among the counter-protesters standing up for racism when a car plunged into the crowd. James Fields Jr., the man driving the vehicle, was arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder.

"I have faith though. Let's rebuild our country on what it was meant to be built upon: freedom and Love. Please, I beg of the evil to let go of the prejudice and racism and to #stopthehate. #prayforCharlottesville," Demi Lovato tweeted. "Yesterday I didn't watch the news or look at anything online because it was too heartbreaking. Today I can't look the other way anymore. Use your voice to spread love and positivity. Use your voice to spread acceptance and peace. Every voice counts."

Zendaya Coleman also took to her social media to condemn hatred and violence, "I really don't know what to say...but this is terrorism. This is America TODAY...not 40 years ago, and your president is silent. Disgusting." Nick Jonas posted a similar message, "Hate is not okay. Violence is not okay. Racism is unacceptable. I am in prayer for our country and for the world."

Seth Rogen cursed out, "By the way, f**k these nazi motherf**kers. #Charlottesville." The actor then angrily replied to Ivanka Trump's post that "there should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis". He wrote to Donald Trump's daughter, "Tell this s**t to your dad."

Olivia Wilde mourned Heyer's death, "My heart breaks for Heather Heyer, murdered for standing up for love. Hatred cannot smother her flame. We will love harder in her name. RIP." Janelle Monae was among the mourners as well, "Rest In Peace baby girl. You passed a TRUE HERO. #HeatherHeyer."

LeBron James tweeted, "It's sad what's going on in Charlottesville. Is this the direction our country is heading? Make America Great Again huh?! He said that." Mark Ruffalo wrote on his own page, "Republicans privately wincing but not coming out publicly against these Nazi Thugs are moral cowards." Both posts were retweeted by Chris Evans.

Without mentioning the Chalottesville incidents, Jessica Chastain wrote, "Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love is Love." Emmy Rossum slammed the President for his silence, "Neo Nazis are beating clergymen in Charlottesville this morning and Trump is silent."

Josh Charles wrote, "Remember even if POTUS does finally speak out against the events in #Charlottesville he doesn't actually give a s**t. Actions, not words." Joey King posted, "A Nazi march in Charlottesville?As a young Jewish woman in the US, Its hard for me to say that I'm surprised in these times.But Im disgusted." William Shatner lamented, "[Sad face] Crazy day filled with hate. What is wrong with people?"
