Despite polling suggesting the precise opposite for months, Donald Trump has won the election and is going to be the next President of the United States.
Unsurprisingly, as Hollywood was nearly unilaterally opposed to Trump, the entertainment community is not happy about what looks like the likely outcome tonight. And, by “not happy”, we mean “positively devastated.” As the results came in and the Electoral College tally began trending Trump, the reactions from celebs turned from cautious optimism to bleak despair.
One producer told Deadline that we should keep productions inside California or only in the states that shares the same values as Clinton’s voters.
Of course it wasn’t just Clinton supporters weighing in. Celebrity Trump supporters were positively ecstatic after what developed into an unexpected victory for the former The Apprentice host. Among them was David Duke, noted white nationalist whose support for Trump mirrored that of the Ku Klux Klan, who endorsed Trump this month.
But most reactions were from supporters of Clinton, who were devastated. For instance, Jim Carrey, who drew an original cartoon which you can see on The Awl.
