A chorus of celebrities joined the voices offering support to House Democrats staging a sit-in over gun-control legislation.

Democrats took over the floor of the House at 11:25 a.m. ET Wednesday on Wednesday — and were still holding out on Thursday morning.

Support was sent in the form of pizzas and care packages — along with words of solidarity posted on social media by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and "Hamilton" star Lin-Manuel Miranda.
