Celebrities react to Donald Trump’s win with shock and horror


Hillary Clinton had the support of the biggest names in show business and a plurality of the popular vote, but Donald Trump’s unprecedented movement to the Oval Office could not be stopped. He had an upset win in the Electoral College.
For Trump’s own celebrity supporters, including Stephen Baldwin and Ted Nugent, his victory was met with congratulations and praise.

But for a larger swath of celebrities in the US and abroad — a number of whom even campaigned for Clinton — a Trump presidency has prompted them to express disbelief, fear, and rallying cries on social media.

Business Insider reports on how left-leaning stars from Kristen Bell to John Legend reacted to Trump’s victory:
