As the reality of Donald Trump's presidential election victory sinks in, there have been calls from both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to accept Trump as president and to, in essence, give the guy a chance. To which, quite a whole lot of people — celebrities in their midst — are saying, no thank you, we will not. Instead, in the election's aftermath, they have exercised the heck out of their possibly endangered First Amendment freedoms, showing up at protests in person and declaring their objections to Trump's presidency online. Below, a look at how celebrities are protesting Donald Trump's America.
