Trump 2016: Celebrities weep as Hillary defeated

THEY are among the most beloved, and dramatic, people in the world.

Now the most prominent US celebrities who became the most vocal campaigners for Hillary Clinton's failed tilt at the presidency are losing it.

Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and others have appeared on social media, some weeping, others looking dejected and exhausted.

An image of Lady Gaga crying in a car has also hit the internet after she was pictured in a black dress brandishing a sign reading "Love trumps hate".

The often star-spangled Perry, who sang at some of Clinton's biggest rallies, vented on Twitter much like those Trump supporters she opposed.


"Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are a not a nation that will let HATE lead us," she wrote in another.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who has long opposed Trump, told her followers to stand together.

"We stick up for the vulnerable," she said.

"We challenge bigots.

"We don't let hate speech become normalised.

"We hold the line."

Miley Cyrus posted a tearful video in which she broke down while talking about how much Clinton deserved victory.
"I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president.

"That's what makes me so sad.

"I just wish she had that opportunity because she's fought for so long.

"And I believe her when she says she loves America."

Grande said she was in tears.

Even Captain America himself Chris Evans was "devastated" by the result.

"This is an embarrassing night for America," he wrote.

"We've let a bully set our course."

Rapper Snoop Dogg it was the second-worst day in the nation's history after the World Trade Center attacks.

Meanwhile US action-movie actor and occasional visitor to Russia Steven Seagal praised Trump's "stunning victory".
"Looking forward to making AMERICA great again!" he wrote.
