Plenty of celebrities got involved in the US presidential campaign, and now that the US has elected Donald Trump, even more have gone public with their reaction.

Rapper Snoop Dogg was one of the unhappy campers, posting a photo of Toronto on social media, calling it his “new home” and asking Canadian recording artist Drake to help him with real estate advice.

Here’s a selection of some other celebrity comments:
