They were the most vocal of Hillary Clinton’s celebrity supporters, but on the morning after Trump triumphed at the polls, stars such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Madonna and others have to face the music.
With the election coming down to the wire over the past few days, the Democratic nominee had assembled a dream team of celebrities who backed her in a final push that included musical performances, live appearances and a flurry of social media posts.
Today, many of them returned to social media with a much different message. After some initial shock and sadness, some saw it as a reason to rise up, illustrated by Gaga’s impromptu late-night protest outside Trump Tower in New York.
Others, including Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay Z have so far kept silent. Meanwhile, “Girls” star Lena Dunham’s last message was still hopeful, but she has yet to respond to the final results.
