The alt-right has only been emboldened by Donald Trump's win, and some celebrities are already the target of their hate-filled attacks.
Anti-Semitic, racist, sexist, xenophobic and homophobic attacks are on the rise since last week's presidential election, fueled by the hate-filled rhetoric spewed by Trump and confirmed by his appointment of alt-right godfather Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist.
Actress Emmy Rossum shared a stunningly disgusting tweet she received, threatening to send Jews back to concentration camps.

Silicon Valley co-stars Kumail Nanjiani and Thomas Middleditch relayed the harassment they received at an LA-area bar late last week.
Was at a bar last night with @Middleditch. At the end of the night, 2 white dudes, 20's, who'd been there for hours came up to us.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
"We're big fans of you guys. (To Thomas) I trolled you on twitter yesterday." He goes on to say how we're wrong about Trump.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
I go "Hey we don't wanna discuss politics right now." His friends goes "oh they're cucks." Then starts yelling at us. "CUCKS CUCKS CUCKS!"— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
He starts getting in my face. Thomas puts his hand on the dude's chest to stop him. "Don't touch me you cuck. Wanna go outside?"— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
At this point, the bouncer runs over, grabs them, kicks them out. The bartender is awesome & apologetic. Thomas & I are stunned.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
This happened at a bar in LA surrounded by ppl. I can't imagine what it must be like to be someone who looks like me in other parts.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
We can't let hate/racism/bigotry/sexism be normalized. If something happens, be safe, but let it be known we won't stand for this.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
Many ppl are like "just cuz I voted for Trump doesn't mean I'm racist/sexist." Ok, but at best, you ignored it, you overlooked it.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 12, 2016
Btw, "cuck" is an Alt Right term. Look it up, it's not positive.— Thomas Middleditch (@Middleditch) November 12, 2016

Lena Dunham has been told to leave the country… while being body-shamed.
I have a Gulfstream V waiting for you to leave the US. I assume you eat for the equivalent of 5. A chef will be on board. @lenadunham— Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) November 11, 2016

Oprah is getting hit with incredibly racist slurs, like this one.

Trump asked his supporters to stop their attacks during his 60 Minutes interview last night, but since his entire campaign was built around such rhetoric, it seems unlikely.
