Los Angeles: Hollywood celebrities like Cher and Chris Evans expressed disappointment, fear and disbelief over Republican Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election on Wednesday.
Trump was elected the 45th US President, defeating forecasters who had predicted Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton’s win.
During their presidential campaigns, Clinton found immense support from celebrities from the American film world.
Here’s what some representatives of the celebrity world had to say on the result of the polls:
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.
Shonda Rhimes: This many of you don’t mind the body-part grabbing xenophobic man who says ‘there’s my black over there?’
Alec Baldwin: One thing that is changed forever in this country is the meaning of the word ‘Christian’ as it applies to politics.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson: I’m taking tonight to grieve for minorities, women, immigrants, muslims & the LGBTQ community but tomorrow I’m waking up ready to fight.
Cher: How did Trump get this far? He should be in jail and throw away the key. Maybe then he can grab his own p*ssy. Nothing is funny about tonight! Millions of women, POC, Muslim, and immigrants are scared sh**less. It shouldn’t be this close.
Ariana Grande: Well this is utterly terrifying.
Shonda Rhimes: Uh, America?
Wil Wheaton: America, we are way too comfortable with racism, misogyny, and bigotry. I’m profoundly disappointed in us as a nation.
Brooke Burke-Charvet: We will face a deeply divided nation that may take a long time to heal.
Beau Willimon: We must get over our disbelief & dismay immediately. We use that energy starting tomorrow to prevent him from ruining the nation.
Kirstie Alley: People want jobs want good wages want fair and limited government want a cleaned up planet but mostly happiness.
Stephen Baldwin: God is moving and America is speaking! Praise the Lord.
Jenna Jameson: We are watching history being made.
Tila Tequila: Take a good look at what the right side of history looks like.
