Hillary Clinton had the support of the biggest names in show business and possibly the most votes overall, but Donald Trump’s unprecedented movement to the Oval Office could not be stopped. He had an upset win of the Electoral College.

For a large swath of celebrities in the US and abroad, a number of whom even campaigned for Clinton, a Trump presidency has prompted them to express disbelief, fear, and rallying cries on social media.
