Hollywood actors took to Twitter over the weekend to encourage others within the entertainment industry to boycott Georgia after Republican Brian Kemp defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams in the governor race.

The decision came after Abrams announced on Friday that she will not continue to challenge the results of the governor’s race. She said Kemp won the race, but refused to call her speech a concession speech since a “concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper.”

According to Fox News, these shows shoot in Georgia along with the movie Avengers 4: Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” “Raising Don,” “Sextuplets,” CW’s “Legacies,” “Black Lightning,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Fox’s “The Gifted,” “The Passage,” “The Resident,” “Star” and CBS’ “MacGyver,” Dynasty, Showtime’s “Queen Fur.”
