President Barack Obama has been reelected, the commander-in-chief topping former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in a contest that was close–but not nearly as close as many experts had predicted.
Within seconds of the race being called for Obama by most major news networks (including Fox News, though some of its own pundits resisted), the celebrity corner of the Twitterverse was on fire with reactions. Here’s a mere sampling:
Alec Baldwin: “Fox News is hurting the Republican Party…..”
Dianna Agron: Congratulations, Mr. President, our president.
Donald Trump: Our nation is a once great nation divided!…The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy…Hopefully the House of Representatives can hold our country together for four more years…stay strong and never give up!
Kimora Lee Simmons: #4MoreYears! Congratulations Mr President Sir.->
Jesse Tyler Ferguson: Celebrating #equality with@TieTheKnotOrg!

Ronan Farrow: Fox News hastily packing up their vast smugness reserves for another four years.

Shonda Rhimes: FOX news is amazing. Like they live in a magic land far far away from reality. You can not stop watching!
