Former reality star Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton — who has been lauded as, perhaps, the most qualified candidate to ever run for office — to secure the U.S. presidency early this morning (November 9), sending parts of the nation (and the world) into shock.

Celebrities have reacted similarly, with the vast majority of them expressing frustration and upset over the outcome of the election.

Katy Perry — a longtime Hillary Clinton supporter, who’s campaigned for the candidate for years — offered words of support, imploring citizens not to feel disheartened by Trump’s win.

Other celebrities like Rashida Jones, Ariel Winter, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, John Legend and more noted their fear for the forthcoming four years and expressed disappointment with the results.

Zendaya wrote, “……speechless…petrified…heartbroken…weary. I don’t know what to say or what to do. I guess I just never knew how many people in this country didn’t love other people in this country.”

Erasing every last word cause I didn't even believe it as i typed it. I'm just saying: I got a laundry list to the top of Mt Fuji of things I've overcome and still managed to survive—I'm just praying whatever strength I was given to make it through the hard times of yesteryear, that this strength and power revive me and all of my people (women, those of different religious background, LGBTQIAs, prisoners, the poor, the imm—look it's 4am…—I don't feel like doing an 8th draft—some of my friends gonna be angry as all hell. Some will point fingers—nevermind….I got nothing. Right now. —nothing
