A Dark Day…Celebrities React To An Election That Has Rocked A Nation

The 2016 Presidential election will go down in the history books. This election has seen a lot of mudslinging, dirty politics, and the misrepresentation of facts. The road to this election seemed to divide the nation in half. Everyone choose sides and tried to convince the other why their candidate was the best. Celebrities even got involved by making appearances at rallies and giving concerts in honor of the candidate that they supported.

Yesterday, the 2016 Presidential Election Day had finally arrived. Some Americans stood in line for hours to make sure that their voice was heard and their votes were cast. The race was neck and neck and to close to call most of the night. Today Americans are waking up to an outcome that many were not expecting. I’m sure everyone’s social media timelines have been flooded with reactions on the outcome of the election. While most celebrities tend to keep their political views to themselves because they don’t want to offend fans, this election had all the celebs talking. Many celebrities that have shown their support for Hillary Clinton throughout the election have taken to their social media to voice their opinions about Trump being elected into office.
