When it comes to the fight-or-flight response to moments of crisis, it looks like some of your favorite celebrities are choosing fight. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Pink, and Laverne Cox are all sharing and asking their fans to sign a Change.org petition (currently bearing over 3 million signatures) that asks the electors of the Electoral College to vote Hillary Clinton, and not Donald Trump, president when they cast their internal ballots on December 19. “Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump ‘won’ is because of the Electoral College,” the petition states. “The Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?” It looks like very few people in this country, celebrity or not, are ready to take this result lying down.
