Lena Dunham, Barbra Streisand and seven more American celebrities plotting their move to Canada
For the past year and a half, celebrity Clinton fans have been planning to leave the U.S. in the event of a Trump presidency. Some, like Cher, said they’d make Jupiter their new home, others said London or Spain, and a handful claimed they’d relocate to Canada. Now that the election’s in the bag, here are nine celebs who might have crashed our immigration website last night.
Woke up later than usual. Swear I just woke up from a nightmare. But it was real. It was real? Right? Gotta wait four years for my government to reflect the ALL the people it represents. It was two steps forward one step back. It's ok, cuz real change doesn't set quickly it takes time. I'mma keep my head up, and hope that over the next four years 😓trump will perform with class, dignity, and virtue. If not…. we need to figure out a plan citizens, we can't keep looking crazy infront of the entire world if we keep wanting to act like a big boss, cuz now we really look like bullies. Ok I'm done. No more talking bad about our new president elect. 😔😖. 😐. 🤖. #americanhorrorstory I mean #america #american #2016 Congrats bro.
Symone declared her intent to move to Canada way back in February. Her response to Trump’s win (above) is pretty straight-forward.
According to an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the Girls creator’s Canadian city of choice would be Vancouver.
We’re getting Babs! Maybe. If Australia doesn’t want her.

Caught by a TMZ camera guy earlier this month, the R&B crooner said being Drake’s neighbour wouldn’t be such a bad idea. Today, he’s simply #disappointed.
Although shocked and disappointed by the outcome, I hope the pres-elect will work to unify our wounded country. I sincerely wish him success

In a recent episode of the Bestseller Experiment podcast, when asked if he would “fancy” an extended vacay to Canada if Trump won, Cranston said he wouldn’t consider himself a tourist—he’d be an expat.
On the Daily Show, Peele’s other half said he wishes he still lived in Detroit, because of it’s proximity to the Canadian border.
The House of Cards (and Party of Five and Scream) star told the Huffington Post that she’d come back to us.
No more book recommendations, politics, or amusing dog pictures for the immediate future. I'm shutting down.

The man who’s job it is to scare the bejeezus out of people told the Washington Post that a Trump presidency terrifies him “more than anything else,” and he was considering a move to Canada.
