We are obviously used to dramatic theatrics even if many of them sounded dead serious, dozens of celebs vowed over the last few months to depart the US if Donald Trump won the White House, saying they’d buy a one way ticket to everywhere from Canada to Jupiter. And perhaps some of them planned on carrying through on their threat: overnight Canada’s immigration website crashed from heavy traffic after it became clear that Trump would win.
The question, however, now is how many of these provocateurs will be true to their word, especially in a world in which long-held conventions just got slammed overnight: how many of these so-called starts will make good on their promise?
So, for the sake of convenience, here is a list of celebrities who claimed they would move out of the U.S. under a Trump administration.
Samuel L. Jackson.
Samuel slammed Trump for running a “hate”-filled campaign and said he would move to South Africa if he wins. “If that motherf—er becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa,” the movie star quipped to Jimmy Kimme.
Miley Cyrus jotted an emotional Instagram post in March that tears were running down her cheek and she was unbelievably scared and sad. “I am moving if he is president,” the young pop star said. “I don’t say things I don’t mean!”
Ne-Yo told TMZ last month that he’d move to Canada and be neighbors with fellow R&B singer Drake if the country elected Trump.
Goldberg went ham on Trump during a January episode of The View.
“Listen, he can be whatever party he wants to be,” she said. “What he can’t be is he can’t be the guy that says it’s your fault stuff isn’t working. That’s not the president I want. Find a way to make stuff work.”
“Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know. I can afford to go,” she added.
Others include former stripper and Wiz Khalifa’s Ex Wife Amber Rose, Raven Simone amongst quite a good number of stars.
Although this time they sound a little more serious, I aint shocked since this is not the first time this is happening. Can you recall when Bush was re-elected????
Well, for those moving to Jupiter……..am on my chillspot, observing how;
