Donald Trump defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president of the United States

Hillary Clinton had far more celebrity backers in the US presidential race than her opponent Donald Trump. And now, following the shock win of Republican candidate Trump, Clinton’s supporters have taken to social media to express their feelings on America's new president...

Lady Gaga is refusing to go down without a fight and has staged a protest outside Trump Tower in New York: 

Katy Perry, who was frequently on the campaign trail with Clinton, tweeted her dismay and said her supporters would "never be silenced":

Eva Longoria posted this picture expressing her shock shortly after Trump’s win:

Madonna tweeted "We never give up" after Trump's election:

Ariana Grande took the news badly:

Avengers actor Chris Evans said he found the whole thing embarassing:

Actress Brittany Snow considered jetting off to neighbouring Canada:

British singer Lily Allen reccomended Canada to build a wall:

And talk-show host James Corden said the result reminded him of the Brexit vote earlier this year, when Britain voted to leave the European Union:

Will they leave?

Girls creator Lena Dunham was another staunch Clinton supporter and has said in the past that she would move to Canada if Trump was voted in. She said: "I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there." 

Cher claimed that she wanted off Planet Earth if Trump won, saying: "If he were to be elected, I'm moving to Jupiter."

Miley Cyrus also claimed she would be moving to Canada if Clinton didn't win
