Should the anti-Trump celebs who vowed to leave the US if he won now move? (POLL)
Despite tweeting “IF HE WERE TO BE ELECTED,IM MOVING TO JUPITER” Cher is still very much on Earth and has not become the sole inhabitant of Jupiter.
Cher was amongst a list of celebrities targeted by fake advertisements selling their current homes in light of their proclaimed exile.
Robert De Niro
The 'Raging Bull' and 'Taxi Driver' star who previously called Trump “an idiot” and didn’t hold back with how he would “like to punch him in the face,” has now been invited to claim asylum in the southern Italian town of Ferrazzano, where his grandparents hailed from.
Though it is unclear if Robert De Niro will immigrate to Italy, he clarified after the elections that he “can’t punch Trump now, he’s the president.”
Comedian Amy Schumer dismissed earlier claims that she would move to Spain as “said in jest“ and plans to remain firmly on American soil.
In a rant on Instagram following Hillary Clinton’s defeat, she dismissed Clinton’s email scandal as “nothing incriminating” and called Trump a “racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser.”
First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest. Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser. Like the rest of us I am grieving today. My heart is in a million pieces. My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now. Like everyone else I am horrified that people believed these bumper sticker slogans filled with hate he spewed. People who voted for him you are weak. You are not just misinformed. You didn't even attempt information. You say lock her up and you know something about the word email but what was in the emails? You have no clue. Well I'll tell you if you were able to read this far through the holes in your sheet. They said nothing incriminating. Nothing. She dedicated her entire life to public service and got our children Heath care and education without discrimination. he didn't pay his workers. Started a fake college. Ripped people off. Never paid his taxes and sexually assaulted women and on and on She would have taken care of us. I personally would have had to pay higher taxes. All the celebrities backing her would have. People asked how much I was paid to stand with her. Nothing. None of us were paid a dollar. We would have had to pay a lot more because we are fortunate enough to make a high income. But we all wanted to do it to take care of the people in need. She was fighting to take care of you kicking and screaming babies. Yelling about emails you know nothing about and not liking her clothes or her hair she wanted to protect you even you. Well you've gotten what you asked for and now you can watch the sky open up. Literally. I am furious. I cry for her and for all the smart people I love who know what's right and I cry for you people who fell for shiny hats and reality catch phrases. She would have protected you. Today we grieve tomorrow we begin again. Yes this quote is fake but it doesn't matter
In the days leading up to the election Schumer was very clear on who she supported, calling Trump an “orange sexually assaulting Godzilla” and describing those who chose not to vote as a “steamy dump.”
The author and creator of the TV series ‘Girls’ was one of Clinton’s biggest celebrity supporters, even making a mock-rap video in support of her candidate. In April she said there was a “100 percent” chance she would move to Canada, cementing her claim with the words “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will."
Since Clinton’s loss, she has sought to explain her threat, saying it was made when Trump didn’t look likely to win. “And for those demanding I move to Canada based on something I said when this man seemed like a steak salesman with a long shot at the presidency: stay busy reveling in your new regime,” she said in an Instagram post.
And for those demanding I move to Canada based on something I said when this man seemed like a steak salesman with a long shot at the presidency: stay busy reveling in your new regime. I will go many places during my lifetime, surrounded by kindreds on a mission to spread justice and light. I can't wait for all of of this, and for the change to come, as we use what we've been given to protect those who can't protect themselves. What are you living for?
It appears the biggest turnaround has come from singer Miley Cyrus. Similarly to Dunham, Cyrus said “I don’t say things I don’t mean!” when she made a vow in March to emigrate if Trump won.
The night of his victory she took to Facebook telling the president-elect, “If you want to open your heart I will give you the key.”
“Donald Trump I accept you. I even accept you as the President of the United States because now I want to be helpful,” she said as tears poured from her eyes. Given her offer of help it looks doubtful she will leave the country.
"He has no facts. I don't know, I can't believe it. I'm either coming to your country, if you'll let me in, or Canada," Barbra Streisand said on Australian TV in August, making her position on Trump very clear.
Streisand has yet to elaborate and whether she move to either Australia or north of the US border to Canada.
At last year’s Emmy Awards the former host of ‘The Daily Show’ said “I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers,” when questioned about a possible Trump win.
The comedian is still in America, with no plans announced to join Cher on another planet.
The 'Breaking Bad' star changed his tune after Trump’s win, tweeting “Although shocked and disappointed by the outcome, I hope the pres-elect will work to unify our wounded country. I sincerely wish him success.”

Earlier this month Cranston said on the podcast 'The Bestseller Experiment' if Trump won “I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
Samuel L. Jackson
“If that motherf*cker becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa,” Jackson said in a segment on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ in December 2015.
Trump tweeted in retaliation that Jackson was “boring” and does too many TV commercials.
I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven't played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2016
Don’t like @SamuelLJackson’s golf swing. Not athletic. I’ve won many club championships. Play him for charity!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2016
Jackson has not confirmed if he is still planning to move to South Africa.
Tell us what you think. Should the celebrities leave the country after saying they would?
