Black Hollywood Reacts to President-Elect Donald Trump’s Victory

donald-trump-black-hollywoodIn an election that will no doubt go down in history, Donald Trump claimed victory over Secretary Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election-and Black Hollywood is none too happy about it.

The evening was long and a close one for both candidates, but in the end America ended up choosing Donald Trump as the country’s next leader. Trump gained 276 electoral votes to Hillary’s 218, beating her to the necessary 270 for the victory.

The President-elect tweeted his excitement about the election’s outcome saying, “Such a beautiful and important evening! The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before.”

It’s no secret that Trump never managed to gain any real support within the black community, so now that he’s won the White House, celebs are taking to social media to let their fans-and their new president-know exactly how they feel.

Take a look at Black Hollywood’s reaction to the stunning election results below:

The amount of time I devote to meditating and not letting speculation or bad energy rule my life—for me to just spazz out would be counter productive. I'll be honest I went through 6 drafts of this. Erasing every last word cause I didn't even believe it as i typed it. I'm just saying: I got a laundry list to the top of Mt Fuji of things I've overcome and still managed to survive—I'm just praying whatever strength I was given to make it through the hard times of yesteryear, that this strength and power revive me and all of my people (women, those of different religious background, LGBTQIAs, prisoners, the poor, the imm—look it's 4am…—I don't feel like doing an 8th draft—some of my friends gonna be angry as all hell. Some will point fingers—nevermind….I got nothing. Right now. —nothing
