President Obama was reelected last night and celebrities were celebrating with the rest of the world. A slew of celebrities logged onto Twitter to express their excitement about the outcome of the election. Eva Longloria got emotional and was brought to tears by the news. “Me and my friends celebrating! I’m on tears! Moving the country forward!!! Obama!!!” she tweeted. “Amazing speech by @BarackObama re-elected for his 2nd term! America is and can be united for the greater good of all Americans!”
Denzel Washington was a bit more eloquent and pointed out an interesting fact from the election. “Obama won Massachusetts the state where Romney was Governor. If they didn’t vote for him, that should tell you something. #Swerve,” he wrote. Others took a couple of shots at Mitt Romney. RuPaul treated Romney like an eliminated “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant, tweeting “Now @MittRomney Sashay Away!”
Rapper Waka Flocka instagrammed a humorous picture of President Obama with the caption “Hey Romney, you mad bro?” and captioned it with “swagg.”
Beyoncé doesn’t have a twitter but she had no problem sharing her reaction. She joined Instagram yesterday and one of the pictures she posted was a piece of paper with the saying “Take that Mitches!” written in blue marker. She also posted a picture of herself in a “Texans for Obama” t-shirt.
Although there were scores of happy reactions, some celebrities were not happy with the results. Donald Trump, a birther and vocal critic of President Obama, went on a long rant about the outcome of the election. “This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy,” he said during his rant. “Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before.”
Ted Nugent wasn’t happy about President Obama’s reelection either. “Goodluk America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools,” he wrote on his Twitter page. Other celebrities took the high road and merely praised Governor Romney for his efforts. “Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan. You fought the Good Fight and I am proud! @MittRomney @RepPaulRyan,” tweeted Stacy Dash.
