Convicted criminal Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years of prison following his felony of first-degree and third-degree rape during his trial in New York.

Many celebrities took to Twitter to express their emotions and overwhelmingly positive reactions at justice being served and what is truly a watershed moment for the #MeToo movement accusations against him ignited.

They applauded the brave women who came forward

And extended their support to the survivors

They also commended the justice system

Survivors Rosanna Arquette and Rose McGowan, who accused Weinstein, expressed gratitude to all those who extended support during the terrible time

While sharing the important message

And throwing shade... lots and lots of shade
