Apparently, not everyone was a fan of Sarah Silverman's passionate speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday.

The 45-year-old comedian took to Twitter on Wednesday to clarify that a tweet from her verified Twitter account linking to an anti-Hillary Clinton video wasn't actually posted by her. "America, are you awakening? #Hilary4Prison," the now-deleted post read.

"MY TWITTER ACCT GOT HACKED THIS IS NOT ME," Silverman clarified.

NEWS: Susan Sarandon Calls Gif of Her Looking Miserable at the DNC 'Accurate'

Silverman, who was an outspoken Bernie Sanders supporter throughout the election, spoke out at the DNC in support of Clinton. At the end of her speech, she came back to the mic to call out Sanders supporters who were booing.

"To the 'Bernie or Bust Crowd,'" she declared. "You're being ridiculous."

Still, she gave a shout-out to Sanders on Twitter on Monday, posting a picture of the Vermont senator rallying the crowd at the DNC.

"#BERNIE," she captioned the snap.

"I will vote for Hillary with gusto, as I continue to be inspired and moved to action by the ideals set forth by Bernie, who will never stop fighting for us," she also said during her speech. "I am proud to be a part of Bernie's movement and a vital part of that movement, and a vital part of that movement is making sure Hillary Clinton is the next president of the United States."

Silverman isn't the only celeb speaking out at the DNC in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Demi Lovato got candid about her own struggle with metal health issues, and the important role politicians play in ensuring everyone gets access to help.

"Like millions of Americans I am living with mental illness, but I'm lucky. I had the resources and support to get treatment at a top facility," Lovato shared. "Unfortunately, too many Americans from all walks of life don't get help either because they fear the stigma, or cannot afford treatment."
