A host of celebrities have been commiserating the result of the US election, after it was announced that Republican candidate Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States.

During his opponent, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, she won a legion of support from a number of famous people, with Katy Perry, Beyoncé and Madonna among the most notable.

However, since the news of Trump’s victory broke early this morning, many c famous people from both sides of the Atlantic have been expressing their disappointment and frustration at the result, with the always-outspoken Cher and JK Rowling among the first to voice their disapproval.

I am disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core by what has transpired tonight. I gathered around the TV with my family and loved ones, ready to celebrate history being made. My daughter had this little blue dress on. I was ready to pop the Martinelli's and hold her, watching Hilary Clinton become the first female president of the United States of America. But...It didn't happen. I had a sick feeling in my gut, riddled with anxiety as the polls started coming in. After hours of a growing pit in my stomach, it was over. I left the TV, grabbed my daughter and took her to bed. But now, as I'm laying next to my her as she sleeps, I remember. Remember what I have control over and what I don't. I don't have control over Donald Trump becoming president. That has been decided. But what I do have control over is where I go from here. I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they're from. I will teach her how important it is to be an advocate for humanity. Not just the portion of humanity that benefits her. I will teach her non violent communication. That in the face of hatred we must love each other even harder. Not give in. Not get discouraged or feel like our progress in the past is void. Keeping fighting for all of us, with an emphasis on those that and have been the most affected by systemic oppression. I will teach her that when she is silent during moments of injustice, she is siding with the oppressor. I will teach her that walls divide people, and by their nature cannot bring us closer. And that just because someone holds the most powerful position in the world, does not make that person right, just or fair. Donald Trump is not raising my daughter. I am. I get to encourage and nurture her to be who she wants to be. Teach her that her voice and actions can change the world. Teach her that she can do anything that a man can do. And one day, even become president of the United States of America. I have work to do. It starts now. And that work is the only thing bringing me peace at the moment

But, of course, not everybody was against Trump.

While they may have been few and far between, a handful of celebs were quick to congratulate the new POTUS, including former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate Stephen Baldwin and *deep sigh* our very own Piers Morgan.

While plenty of celebrities endorsed Hillary Clinton in the lead-up to the election, Trump found himself on the end of barbed comments from several influential people after announcing his candidacy, including actor George Clooney, director Ron Howard and even fellow businessman Richard Branson.

Adele also reportedly prevented him from using her music at his Republican rallies, as did The Rolling Stones, though his first speech after the news of his victory was announced concluded with a blast of the group’s hit ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’.

Meanwhile the cast of ‘Will And Grace’ briefly reunited for a 10-minute mini-episode, during which the majority of the jokes were at his expense.
