Celebrities React to the UK’s Brexit Vote
It’s an interesting day in the United Kingdom now that British voters have decided that Britain will leave the European Union.
The June 23 referendum, which warranted the largest UK-wide vote since the 1992 general election with more than 30 million voters, ruled in favor of the “Brexit” decision by a margin of 52% to 48%. Britain’s full break from the EU will take at least two years — a similar tale to that of Kylie Jenner and Tyga’s relationship — but immediate ramifications have followed within the first 24 hours of the decision. The value of the British pound decreased, global stock markets are plummeting, and British Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation.
“I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months,” said Cameron in his speech. “But I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”
While Donald Trump saluted Britain for taking back “control of their country” and Sarah Palin sent her approval of the decision, Britons that were involved in the vote and other celebrities expressed their own opinions on social media.
Well, at least Elizabeth Hurley got a good night’s sleep. Now let’s throw it back to the three-ring circus of a US presidential election.
