In 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.

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.

Globalization is destroying democracy and the US just voted a man who built and named a golden tower after himself to live in, as president. https://t.co/4fcC81tFs8 — lily allen (@lilyallen) November 9, 2016
We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don’t let hate speech become normalised. We hold the line. https://t.co/ro9AkRSc9Q

I went to sleep early. Woke up to this. To my fellow humans outside of the US. We don’t want this. And we are heartbroken.

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?

Be tired. Be mad. Be honest & concerned. But be not afraid. Rest up. Be safe. Come together. Construct. Know your surroundings. Be creative.
