Celebrities React To Trump's Presidency

In one of the most shocking election results in recent memory, Donald Trump has prevailed over Hillary Clinton and is the next President of the United States. We are horrified at the news, and absolutely devastated for the people who will now be in danger because of Trump and his supporters. 

While we’re sad, a few celebrities have also chimed in, showing support for the minorities and offering words of encouragement to their followers who might also be scared and upset.

Niall Horan

Niall tweeted words of comfort in letting us know that at least it wasn’t our age group that had voted, and that had it only been millennials, Hillary would have won.

Ansel Elgort

Ansel shared his remorse over Trump’s win, and decided to tweet a few things. He urged us to dig deeper in the next election and to “Be informed, do your research. Look deeper than what your news channels or Facebook feed teaches you.” He also reminded us to keep caring, and to become better.

Tyler Oakley

Tyler Oakley has always been very vocal about his support for Clinton, and he sent out numerous tweets in response to this tragedy. He grieved along with us, he mourned the tragedy, and he was hurt with us. However, his main point was to send support to your friends, to give them great hugs and to show them your love in this difficult time. 

Lady Gaga

Like Tyler, Lady Gaga is also a well-known, prominent Hillary supporter. She frequently supported Hillary, and had numerous reasons to do so. Upon finding out the result, Gaga responded by reminding us to “stand up for kindness, equality and love.” Then Gaga went on to protest outside of Trump Towers with a sign saying “Love Trumps Hate”. Actual queen.

Katy Perry

Katy was a vocal Hillary supporter, and still is a vocal Hillary supporter. Katy was, as expected, furious at the result. She shed a few tears like the rest of us, but then she called for a revolution. She urged us not to stay silent, not to take this lying down. Judging by the Twitter videos of all the protests happening around the country, it looks like people are listening. 

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus tweeted an emotionally charged video in which she called for compassion, peace, and empathy.

Even though many of us are on the other side of the world, it is very important to continue to spread love, kindness and happiness. Send love especially to your American friends, who may need it the most. Let your family and friends know that you don’t stand for Trump’s debauchery, and that you believe in all the things he’s against.
