Even Ne-Yo joined the charade and jokingly stated that he and Drake would become neighbors in Canada if Trump is elected President. The rapper, of course, never followed up with his plans.
6. Snoop Dogg
Ne-Yo was not the only rapper who joked about moving to Canada and mentioning Drake along the way. After Trump’s election win, hip hop icon Snoop Dogg shared a photo of Toronto on his Instagram account and claimed that the city was his “new home” and he would hit up Drake for a “hookup on some property.”
Snoop Dogg’s hatred for Trump is no secret. The rapper did not move to Toronto but did make fun of the President in the music video of his song Lavender. The President was appalled by his mock assassination in the music video and tweeted,
“Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”
5. Amy Schumer
The stand-up comedian was an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton and vowed to move out if Trump wins the elections. Upon his eventual win, Amy Schumer stayed in America and revealed that her statement was a joke. No one was laughing though.
“First of all, the interview where I said I would movie was in London and was said in jest,”
explained Schumer on an Instagram post.
“Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news.”
4. Eddie Griffin
The American comedian admitted that while he admires Donald Trump for being “good at making money”, he still finds him as an ignorant individual. Similar to all the entries in the list, Eddie Griffin swore that he would be leaving America if Trump wins and named Africa as his destination.
Despite being active on Twitter, Griffin has yet to provide an update about moving to Africa.
3. Jon Stewart
Always politically aware, Jon Stewart is by all means not a member of the Donald Trump fan club. Though he has voted for Republican candidates before, the former host of The Daily Show did not support Trump in the 2016 Presidential elections and revealed that he would get in a rocket and travel to another planet.
2. Omari Hardwick
When asked about moving abroad if Donald Trump wins the election, television actor Omari Hardwick sharply answered,
“I’ll move from Denver to Italy… If Donald Trump wins the presidency, I’m out.”
When Trump won, Hardwick posted a very lengthy message on his Instagram account against the newly elected President but conveniently failed to mention any of his plans about shifting to Italy.
1. Bryan Cranston
Even the Breaking Bad star could not help himself from overemphasizing how precarious it is for the country if it has none other than Donald Trump as President. With almost every other celebrity promising to leave America if Trump wins, Bryan Cranston was not too far behind.
“I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t. It wouldn’t be a vacation. I’d be an expatriate,”
The six-time Emmy Award winner was far from pleased upon Trump’s eventual win and tweeted,
“Although shocked and disappointed by the outcome, I hope the pres-elect will work to unify our wounded country. I sincerely wish him success.”
Though Cranston never left the country, he pops up in the news every now and then for bashing Trump.
