Many of Hollywood’s A-list expressed a range of feelings from dismay and despair, to fear and for some, hopefulness, as Donald Trump became the clear winner in the U.S. Presidential elections. Among those who made their voices heard through social media were Madonna, Chris Evans, Eva Longoria, Lady Gaga, Lena Dunham, Cher, Kesha, and Katy Perry.
Chris Evans said he felt devastated. The Captain America: Civil War actor tweeted, “This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course.”
Madonna used the rule of three and tweeted a succinct message that underscored that Americans should not give up given the turn of events. The 58-year-old best-selling female recording artist of all time said, “A New Fire is Lit. We Never Give Up. We Never Give In” with flame emojis in between the phrases.
Allegations of sexual impropriety, along with a racist language, dishonesty and greed were but some of the negative things associated with Donald Trump for the duration of the U.S. Presidential elections campaign. Many people were vocal and believed that he was not qualified to be the next U.S. President.
Katy Perry, who had the backing of 94 million-strong Twitter followers, posted, “We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us” and added “WE WILL NEVER BE SILENCED. #LOVETRUMPSHATE.” Some celebrities who were for Hillary Clinton had stated that they said they will leave the United States once Trump took the path to the White House.
Yet even if many people had an inkling of what kind of man he was, or even what kind of leader he will be, Donald Trump still drew crowds from the other side of the fence. Trump supporters hailed his triumph in this year’s US Presidential elections, as seen in live broadacast feeds and social media sites like YouTube. As one online commenter wrote: “YOU CAN’T STUMP THE TRUMP.” For many Hollywood celebrities, that turned out to be agonizingly true.
