Last night, GOP nominee Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election in a stunning upset over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. As the reality of the moment started to sink in, many flooded to Twitter to express their feelings about the election — shock, sorrow, anger and everything in between. Along with everyday civilians, Hollywood celebrities reacted to the news as well. People like Edgar Wright, Jay Duplass, Patton Oswalt, Madonna and more came to the Internet to simply react to what has just happened. Read them below.

No one can stop you from being a loving, kind, generous person. No matter who wins we will be okay and find our way back to humanity.

Looking for a silver lining, maybe this pushes us to get more involved in our country and fight for the things that need fighting for.

No more book recommendations, politics, or amusing dog pictures for the immediate future. I’m shutting down.

This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.
