We absolutely love this: a fan of the lovely Kerry Washington started up a Twitter hashtag so that fellow admirers of the Scandal star could chime in with how the mom-to-be has inspired them. The tag #CelebrateKerry was created by user @oSoBRANDnew Monday and has taken off with tweets about all the ways in which she's shown her awesomeness.
"I #CelebrateKerry because she inspires me to be a better person than I was yesterday and she let's us know we always have room to improve!" @ThatGladiator wrote.
"I #CelebrateKerry bc she is SO humble, intelligent, driven, focused & shows ALL women that hard work pays off & anything is possible. TY KW!" another user, @CreeLu, said.
"#CelebrateKerry she's amazing, brilliant, beyond beautiful and an extraordinary soul! @kerrywashington you make the world a better place!" wrote @ScandalLuscious.
The star of all this love eventually caught wind of what was going on and tweeted her gratitude.
"I'm totally blushing and humbled and kinda speechless about the uber sweet #CelebrateKerry hashtag. Thank you guys," she wrote.
