Sarandon, 69, was spotted in the DNC crowd on Monday night shaking her head and closing her eyes as various speakers addressed the audience in support of Hillary Clinton. Ian McKenna, a NowThis News videographer, captured one instance on video and turned it into a GIF for Twitter, completing it with the caption, "Susan Sarandon is having literally the worst time at the #DemConvention":
Sarandon, who was raised in Edison, N.J., responded to McKenna shortly after his message out with a one-word response:
The Thelma & Louise star's discontent appears to have started early in the week following the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, which came after WikiLeaks published thousands of private DNC emails. Those emails appear to reveal a bias for Hillary Clinton over Sanders, which Sarandon called "disgusting."
"The critical question is, does it matter? Nixon resigned when they broke into the [DNC] headquarters," Sarandon recently told The Young Turks in an interview. "And what does it really say about us if this goes by unattended, just like what does it say, you know, when someone's killed by the police and they get off. You know, it shows you as a culture, as a society, where your values are."
Following her "Accurate" tweet, Sarandon commented "I'm out" on a tweet linking to a commentary piece from the Chicago Tribune titled "DNC betrayed Bernie Sanders and the Rest of America":
