It came after Kardashian's followers flooded her social media feeds, asking if she had voted for West, who also ran for president. Prior to the election, Kardashian - like other members of her famous family - did not disclose who she was voting for.

Hollywood stars blasted Trump in the wake of Biden's historic presidential win, taking to social media to express their joy over the election result.

She also shared a video of her and her husband, John Legend, dancing to late rapper Nipsey Hussle's song, FDT ("F--- Donald Trump").

After being labelled a "creep" by Trump, Cohen roasted the incumbent president for being "out of work" after his loss.

While Cohen previously offered Trump a job as a "racist buffoon" in his next movie, he backtracked on the offer saying his "performance this past week has been tragic and sad".

Trump infamously took out full page print advertisements in 1989 calling for the execution of the teenagers, who years later were found to be wrongfully convicted of the rape of a white woman.

Hillary Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Mr Trump, said: "The voters have spoken, and they have chosen Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to be our next president and vice president. It's a history-making ticket, a repudiation of Trump, and a new page for America."
