Celebrities react with abject horror at an impending Donald Trump presidency


Before a single election result rolled in, Hollywood had already made up its mind on who they wanted to be the next president. Beyoncé and Jay Z, Cher, Madonna, Lady Gaga and even Rihanna had openly stated that they wanted Hillary Clinton to be elected. 

Even on Election Day, celebs like Tracee Ellis RossAmy PoehlerAmerica Ferrera and Miley Cyrus posted pictures of themselves after voting, along with hashtags like #ImWithHer to show their support of Clinton. 

But now, those same celebs are facing the fact that Donald Trump is going to be America's next president. Already on social media, many celebrities have started to speak out about how, well, sad and scared they are now. 

Some are understandably petrified: 


"Speechless... petrified... heartbroken... weary," Zendaya wrote on Instagram. "I don't know what to say or what to do. I guess I just never knew how many people in this country didn't love other people in this country."
