Donald Trump has been elected America’s next president. Most of us can’t believe it (I’m still in a listless shock, despite writing these words, which really do feel like razor blades). It’s not just ordinary citizens like you and I who are despondent–most of Hollywood can’t believe it either. In a truly shocking landslide, the 70-year-old Republican presidential candidate beat his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
Because of the shock, many celebrities aired their frustrations and dismay on social media–in particular, Jewish celebrities are posting about how they feel vulnerable and feel deeply afraid about the future of the country.
Here’s some of the most moving tweets we’ve found:
I am a woman. I am Jewish. I am marrying an Arab American. My sister in law is handicapped. I’m a victim of sexual violence. It’s personal.

I just want to remind everyone that we are looking at a very close race with a presidential candidate who was endorsed by the KKK.

Telling kids, “Trump won” is like telling them you ate their Halloween candy except when they freak out you don’t get to yell, “Kidding!”

Before you say or tweet “we’ll get through this” as words of comfort, consider: Some people won’t.

First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest. Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser. Like the rest of us I am grieving today. My heart is in a million pieces. My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now. Like everyone else I am horrified that people believed these bumper sticker slogans filled with hate he spewed. People who voted for him you are weak. You are not just misinformed. You didn’t even attempt information. You say lock her up and you know something about the word email but what was in the emails? You have no clue. Well I’ll tell you if you were able to read this far through the holes in your sheet. They said nothing incriminating. Nothing. She dedicated her entire life to public service and got our children Heath care and education without discrimination. he didn’t pay his workers. Started a fake college. Ripped people off. Never paid his taxes and sexually assaulted women and on and on She would have taken care of us. I personally would have had to pay higher taxes. All the celebrities backing her would have. People asked how much I was paid to stand with her. Nothing. None of us were paid a dollar. We would have had to pay a lot more because we are fortunate enough to make a high income. But we all wanted to do it to take care of the people in need. She was fighting to take care of you kicking and screaming babies. Yelling about emails you know nothing about and not liking her clothes or her hair she wanted to protect you even you. Well you’ve gotten what you asked for and now you can watch the sky open up. Literally. I am furious. I cry for her and for all the smart people I love who know what’s right and I cry for you people who fell for shiny hats and reality catch phrases. She would have protected you. Today we grieve tomorrow we begin again. Yes this quote is fake but it doesn’t matter
