Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock won't be ascending to the U.S. Senate.

And plenty of Hollywood types are just fine with that.

After Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill hung on to beat Akin and Mourdock lost to conservative Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly, celebs took to Twitter to further castigate the controversial candidates over remarks they made on the campaign trail regarding abortion and a woman's right to choose if she became pregnant as a result of rape.
