Celebrities, who rooted for Hillary Clinton in the US elections, reacted in shock and horror yesterday when Donald Trump won in an historic landslide victory.
Hillary supporter Lady Gaga tweeted: “In a room full of hope, we will be heard @deray #blacklivesmatter Stand up for kindness, equality, and love. Nothing will stop us.”
Singer Katy Perry, who had performed at several Hillary rallies, wrote a series of tweets, including one saying: “We will never be silenced. #LOVETRUMPSHATE.”
Others remained more upbeat, with Madonna tweeting: “We never give up”.
Stars also said they would emigrate if Trump won.
Stars who loudly and proudly threw their weight behind Hillary include Samuel L. Jackson, who should be on his way to South Africa, and Miley Cyrus, who planned to hop over the border to Canada should Trump win.
Earlier this year, vuilbek Miley said of Trump on Instagram: “We’re all just f*****g jam between his rich ass toes! Honestly f*** this s*** I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean!)”
Veteran actor Jackson told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel in December 2015 that he would move his “black ass to South Africa” if Trump won.
Meanwhile, Trump’s supporters were singing all the way to the White House, including actor Stephen Baldwin, who tweeted that he was “proud to have been part of such amazing history”.
Actor Steven Seagal wrote: “Congratulations @realDonaldTrump for your stunning victory over your opponent! Looking forward to making America great again!”
