‘I Want to Quit Life’: Hollywood ‘Devastated’ after Trump Win

Wednesday, November 09, 2016



Hollywood celebrities took to social media Tuesday evening ready to celebrate what initially looked to be a victory for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who led Republican Donald Trump in most polls headed into Election Day — but were left to vent their frustration and horror when Trump pulled off an historic upset.

Many of Clinton’s top celebrity supporters — including some who had hit the trail alongside her during her campaign’s closing stretch, like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga — expressed their shock on Twitter Tuesday night as Trump appeared headed for victory.
Below is a sampling of some of Hollywood’s reaction to Trump’s win. Some of the tweets contain some salty language.

world will never be the same. I feel Sad for the young.🚽will never be more than the toilet, I’ve used as a symbol 4 Him.
U Can’t Polish 💩

America, you have failed. What the actual fuck. Devastating. I won't recognize @realDonaldTrump as our president, ever. 
Is this really what America wants? I can't wrap my mind around this! I still have hope.
Is it possible that this country is more sexist than racist? May God help us all.
What I've learned so far tonight: America is WAAAAAAAAY more sexist than it is racist. And it's pretty fucking racist. 
Biggest loser tonight is the human race. Cause climate change is gone as an issue in Trump America.

THIS IS A HUGE DEAL.
After the wonderful Obamas it is going to be horrifying to see that awful family in the White House. It's like a John Waters movie. https://twitter.com/yettatelebenda/status/796269347144511488 
I went to sleep early. Woke up to this. To my fellow humans outside of the US. We don't want this. And we are heartbroken.
We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don't let hate speech become normalised. We hold the line. https://twitter.com/malmal1012/status/796251369799696384 
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.
The hatred for women is so deep, so real. It must be dealt with immediately.It must excised. FUCK OFF MISOGYNISTS https://twitter.com/pattonoswalt/status/796176331377516544 
Welp! I'm going home early cause I don't know wtf is happening! I want to be near my weapons cause it's gonna be crazy if he wins! Lol
You know what we do now? We finish building what we started and we FIGHT BACK! Lift your heads up brothers and sisters.
The billionaire Republican businessman is close to winning the race and world markets are crashing.
He's all yours, America.
He's all yours
