The first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was filled with exciting performances and memorable speeches, but not everyone was amused.

Susan Sarandon, who was a big Bernie Sanders supporter in the democratic primaries, was caught on camera rolling her eyes and nodding her head during a portion of the DNC. The actress' behavior was quickly made into a gif, with journalist Ian McKenna tweeting: "Susan Sarandon is having literally the worst time at the #DemConvention."

The gif quickly went viral with over 8,000 retweets.

CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Mo Rocca also shared a funny run-in he had with the 69-year-old star. "Susan Sarandon's handler just walked up to me and asked if she could have three bottles of my water. I feel like this is some sort of test," he tweeted. "Susan Sarandon's attempt to make off with my Aquafina is the new Watergate!"

Meanwhile, Sarah Silverman, a former Sanders supporter, spoke out in support of electing Hillary Clinton for president, and had a bold message for those protesting at the DNC. "To the 'Bernie or Bust Crowd,'" the comedian declared. "You're being ridiculous."

Silverman ended her speech by yelling, "Bababooey!"
