Celebrities React To The News Of Donald Trump Winning The 2016 Presidential Election

So Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the USA. No doubt some people will be very happy with the outcome, but it was also a result that has caused concern and sadness among many other people, even in the celeb world. The concern took expression in protests that broke out across various cities including Philadelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Oakland, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland and Washington DC.

Even Captain America hung his head in shame as tears of sadness slowly dropped onto his shield.

Later today Trump heads to his new home for the next four year at the White House to meet President Obama which is sure to be a slightly awkward occasion considering there's no love lost between the two.

While there they are going to talk about how the transition of Trump from president-elect to president will work and be actioned as smoothly as possible (i would love to be a fly on the wall during that conversation).

Meanwhile people on Twitter have already been reporting incidents of race hate crime. Name calling and threats, with many muslim women deciding not to wear their hijab for fear of reprisals.

Twitter (and social media) has pretty much turned into a stream of opinions on the election result, Trump's supporters are enjoying the win, while everyone else is joining in on a collective howl of anguish.

There was also a lot of celebrities taking to twitter to give their two cents, many of whom were Hillary supporters and so not very happy with the result. Armed with celeb words of wisdom for us mere mortals.

So they took to Twitter to voice their thoughts in 140 characters or less. Take a look at a few of them below.
