Celebs shocked, saddened by Trump victory

It’s not too big of a surprise that professionals in the arts and entertainment industry, many fans of Hillary Clinton, took to social media upon the election of President-elect Donald Trump. Here’s a brief summation of some of their reactions (in no particular order).

Lady Gaga: Say a prayer America.

Gabrielle Union: I am scared. I will fight. Trump will not crush my spirit. Hope fuels the fire in my belly to seek the change I want to see in this country.

Octavia Spencer: Gonna miss Obama. Maybe this country needs a Trump presidency to see just how good we had it and took it for granted!!!!!

J.K. Rowling: We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don’t let hate speech become normalized. We hold the line.

Lindsay Lohan: Retweet if you want a recount.

Katy Perry: THE REVOLUTION IS COMING.

Madonna: A New Fire Is Lit. We Never Give Up. We Never Give In.

Chris Evans: This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.

Seth MacFarlane: I truly cannot visualize the rambling, incoherent creature I saw at the debates now addressing the nation from the Oval Office.

Brittany Snow: In other related news: Flights to Canada are really cheap.

Rashida Jones: I just want to remind everyone that we are looking at a very close race with a presidential candidate who was endorsed by the KKK.

Zach Braff: We Brexited.

Sarah Silverman: Putin’s gonna win this thing.

Ben Stiller: Weird dream.

Snoop Dogg: Worst day in America 9/11, 2nd worst day in America 11/9.

Nigella Lawson: This is more than just populism — it’s racism. Confederate flags will be flying.

Jessica Chastain: The positive element from all this is that we can no longer pretend that we are free of racism & sexism. The question is, what do we do now?

Stephen King: No more book recommendations, politics, or amusing dog pictures for the immediate future. I’m shutting down.

John Legend: I feel like America just sent in our tuition check for Trump University.

Michael Moore (from his pithy multi-part message): TO-DO LIST Item #5: Say it loud: “HILLARY WON THE POPULAR VOTE.” A quarter-million more Americans wanted her, not him. This is not TrumpLand.
