If you didn’t tune into the election last night I’m pretty sure you woke up to headlines and status explaining exactly, what happened. In short, Donald Trump won the electoral vote. Though that doesn’t exactly mean he is President (remember he still needs to be sworn in and all that other jazz), there is a very very very high chance we will be seeing the Trumps in the White House in 2017.
Obama and Clinton have already addressed the unfortunate results. Both mentioned that we need to focus on unity and that “we are all on the same team.” You can see her emotional concession speech below.
A huge chunk of celebrities were anything but satisfied with the results of the election, as well. And they were very vocal about it. If your remember throughout the year Clinton was being cosigned by stars like The Carters, Lady Gaga, and Miley Cyrus who sported #ImwithHer.

There is no denying that this is sparking a huge controversy. Protests have erupted in a number of cities across America and citizens are vocalizing the fears they have for their safety all across social media. CNN‘s Van Jones managed to keep his composure as he called this a Whitelash.
Some are calling this the final season of America while some are still saying to have some hope.
Where do you stand?
