Celebrities react to Donald Trump’s election win

Chris EvansIn a shocking victory, Republican Donald Trump has officially been elected President of the United States.

The 70-year-old real estate mogul upset Democrat Hillary Clinton, 69, for the win.

When all ballots were tallied, Donald had secured 306 electoral votes while Hillary had garnered 232. A total of 270 is required to take the election.

Donald may have earned the majority of America’s support, but he is far from having Hollywood’s backing.

Several stars — including Mandy Moore, Captain America Chris Evans and Seth MacFarlane — expressed their surprise, disappointment, fear and grief as the reality of Donald’s victory began to sink in. Others — such as Jesse Williams and Mark Ruffalo — chose to share words of hope and optimism for the future.

Although most celebrities endorsed the #ImWithHer hashtag to demonstrate their support of Hillary, Donald has fans in Hollywood too. Stephen Baldwin, Stacey Dash and Steven Seagal, among others, Tweeted out their satisfaction once the Republican’s triumph had been confirmed.

Take a look the various celebrity reactions below.

    I am concerned that no one is addressing the one TOPIC that to me is most important of all- climate change. Apparently Trump says it is all a fallacy and plans to expand the production of fossil fuels and reduce the restrictions currently imposed on factory emissions.To all of you who have children and grandchildren it is time to consider what effect Trump’s policies will have on the environment- more devastating floods, more droughts, dry conditions leading to widespread fires. WHY ARE YOU NOT CONCERNED about such catastrophic occurrences ?

    The Bible says…. We are to obey governmental authorities, and the government is to treat us justly and fairly. … The authorities that exist have been established by God. … In America it says…. In God We Trust .. so why aren’t some of the American’s following this.
    I am Canadian and I believe that God has place Donald Trump for a reason. A lot of his words were twisted and a lot of the words should not have been said. So let the sinless cast the first stone. We all say things we shouldn’t say and we must forgive. Give Trump a chance. He seems to be doing well since he won. Just pray for him. I like Jennifer who says to stop rioting and love your neighbours. We are neighbours and I love Canadians and Americans.

    Typical Hollywood Trash who think they rule. This is a democracy and there are other Americans who do not live in Hollywood and Hobnob with the Elite in Washington who also have the right to vote. The protestors are nothing bu a bunch of Hoodlums (Democrat Hoodlums) who didn’t get what they wanted and like of spoiled brats are out looting, vandalizing, shooting people who didn’t vote like they did. Shame on all of them EDUCATED, UNIVERSITY INTELLECTUALS as the Media called Hilary’s gang. The uneducated, uncollaged, middle class American the media is saying voted for Trump is showing they are classier than the so called Elite.
    Bunch of sore losers who thought they could call the election. Their egos are so inflated it is pathetic.
    The people wants these so called rich Elites who have been stealing from us past 60 years gone. Time for Brexit and Trump !!! Be sad, suck it up, it is a democracy, however the US looks like a 3rd world country now, and the Hollywood Actors/Actresses inciting a mob to destroy, unbelievable, they should be thrown out of the States, they all said they would leave if Trump got in, well I say LEAVE. Go to Syria or Afghanistan, you won’t riot there.
    One of many reasons Hilary lost is having Hollywood trash on her platform.

    I am waiting to see the exodus of Hollywood stars???? leaving the US. Don’t go to Canada, they don’t want you.
    Go to the Middle East, Mexico, China, Iran etc. Won’t be able to incite a riot there or vandalize, shoot people who don’t think like you. Since you don’t agree with the majority of Americans who voted in Mr Trump and are threatning to leave GO GO GO , you must be against Democracy. Just stay out of any country that is a Democracy!!!!
    Jennifer Lawrence and others inciting violence, you don’t see them on the streets with their signs. They can only pen words no guts to join the paid hoodlums.
