Hollywood celebrities have expressed shock over billionaire businessman Donald Trump's surprise win over seasoned politician Hillary Clinton in the knife-edge US Presidential elections. Trump, a former reality star, who has hosted "The Apprentice", swept Clinton in battleground states like Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.
Many celebrities had openly backed Hillary Clinton and they have now taken to social media to share their despair.
Here's what they wrote:
