Celebs React to Brexit - Britain Is Leaving the European Union

Celebs are in shock that Brexit has happened and now Britain will be leaving the European Union.

The people of Britain voted on Thursday (June 23) in a referendum in which they had to decide between remaining in the EU or leaving.

Pundits had widely expected the people to vote to remain by an overwhelmingly margin, but they were wrong.

Celebs like Ellie Goulding, Hugh Laurie, Suki Waterhouse, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sara Bareilles, Jaime King, and more have spoken out about the decision, which will definitely play a big part in history.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling commented that she wishes that there actually was magic in a time like this.

    I’m Canadian, don’t even live in Europe but I’m not at all shocked. The EU pushed Britain to it’s tipping point when they started talks with Turkey having visa free travel. Even John Oliver didn’t comment on the immigration issue last week when he made a video of Brexist, which was the main reason Brits wanted out of the EU. How is it that no one understands this? The EU has lost it’s backbone and is making deals with the devil.

  • RP

    That’s a tad more complex than that.

  • Anna

    Clearly. That’s why I said the tipping point. As in the last straw to many straws before it.

  • Little Paper Stars

    To be clear I was a Remain, but it’s more than an immigration issue. This government have made cuts to public services and funding, particularly in rural and poorer areas. People are frustrated, it says something that a majority are so disillusioned with our government and the state of the country that they voted for the unknown and chose to take the risk on leaving the EU. Not every one of those 17 million people who voted leave are fearful, xenophobes, there are other issues at play.

  • RP

    I’d rather call it misinformation.

  • deadre

    and the insanity continues …..

  • LindSAY

    Please, the poster with the syrian refugees said it all. I’m french and you know what, I hope we let them cross to the UK, serves them right. They never wanted to be part of the EU to start with.
    As for you, I’m sure you don’t grasp its concept either : its about peace throught economic alliances. Sure it as shifted to other areas but no one was EVER forced to do something.

  • lilyrose

    Seriously, the UK only wanted to take what the EU would give them, they didn’t want to give back

  • lilyrose

    for sure, I hope you guys don’t suffer too much from that and us too in the EU

  • Cruizin1960

    But if the vote were along generational lines, which is what the media is reporting…it is not unknown. These people remember what the UK was like BEFORE the EU. The UK was smart in retaining its own currency. I cannot imagine having a group of unelected people in Brussels dictating how my government should act and what it must do. For people who have known nothing but living under the EU, I can understand why this change would be feared.

  • Marie Bunny Shepard

    You don’t know what to think because it’s a bit complicated ? Here, let me help you. Just look at the supporters of the brexit : Nigel Farage, the fucking baby-boomers (stealing the future, again, from the news generation), the nationalists, the racists, all the extreme-right parties in Europe, Donald Trump (he thinks it’s “fantastic”)… Are you seing a pattern here ? Good.

  • Little Paper Stars

    I don’t fear it, the democracy has spoken. I may not agree but this is the future we now face as we’ll get by, we always have, we’re a more capable, powerful country than some people here are giving credit. But while Brussels have a certain amount of say they don’t effect domestic policy such as instating the bedroom tax, cutting disability and bullying disabled people into work, cutting public transport in rural areas, policing the way people raise their children to the point of fining them. The nation saw an opportunity to stick it to a government who have and are screwing them over and the (only just) majority took it. I understand it, I respect it even if it’s not my personal preference.

  • Jezza

    I wonder what the rational people used to vote as they did were. I heard a lot of people complaining about how hard it is to get affordable housing, the NHS and how hard it was to get to see their physicians, but those are issues that have nothing to do with the EU in and of itself. That is on the Tory government.

    It is an interesting time in the UK, to be sure.

  • Alien Visitor

    Britain was never truly committed to the EU. It was one foot in and one foot out, and now they’ve finally quit for good…for now.

  • Alien Visitor

    The old people voted for cultural reasons and the young voted for economic reasons.

  • FlakesofSunlite

    Just by these tweets, I now know for a fact that celebrities are stupid. I doubt any of the celebrity tweeters except JK Rowling know what the actual implications of Brexit are.

  • JUstinB

    Your comment is very keen on putting people in categories and saying they all vote one way. Maybe you should not categorize and instead let people have their own opinions.

  • Sod Off Ye Wanker

    Have fun getting destroyed outside the Eu, I’ll laugh when I see you cucks regret the choice.

  • smmy33

    LoL
    What economic benefit is there to stay in the EU. Britain imports more from EU nations then it exports, Britain is the second largest contributor to the EU coffers. Britain trade with Eu is only 10% of it’s over all trade.
    Spain, Italy, France, Ireland ( besides Greece on life support) are all still in a recession from 2008 crash, the world wide economic recession that the same eiltes in business and polities caused ( got tax payer bailouts) that were against Britain leaving the EU.
    Easier to control the people when the power is so far removed from them and they can’t vote out bureaucrats they never voted for in the first place.

    The largest economic countries in the 27 nations, Spain, Italy, France, Portugal youth unemployment is or near 50%. The only country to benefit from EU integration was Germany, the same Germany that opened it’s borders without consultation to millions of young, male Muslims migrants.
    The same Germany that has forced Greece to austerity, crippling the nation, for a so called bailout . Money the Greek people have only seen 10% of, the rest is a sly way for Germany to bailout their banks, 90% of the bailout has gone to German and French banks.

    Thank God the older, wiser generation overruled the youth vote, the majority who probably still live off their parents. And played no part in a free, prosperous Britain that older generations fought for with their blood, sweat and tears and weren’t willing to just give away to Brussels for empty promises.

  • smmy33

    “Getting destroyed “, keep dreaming.

    If Canada , Australia, Switzerland just to name a few countries survive well not being part of a poorer, money sucking 26 block of countries, the 5th largest world economy will survive quite well outside of a dying EU.

    The British people appreciate your well wishes on their freedom thou.

  • rrodriguez0309

    i’m not smart, i know, but at least i’m not pretending to understand what’s going on! so can someone enlighten me? please!

  • smmy33

    Well since they now control their borders, you French are going to be stuck with all those Syrian refugees Merkel welcomed with open arms .

    That’s what the left does , if you don’t vote as they wish out comes the name calling .

    Some how they deluded themselves into believing they have the moral authority to sling vile names at groups of people.

    Too bad no one told them no one gives a shit what they think .

  • Sim

    I am so sick of hearing how this is all just racism and xenophobia.

    When did it become mind-blowing that self-aware people may eventually realize, no matter how steeped in socialism and hatred masquerading as social justice, that faraway bureaucrats living a life unfathomable to the majority electorate do not have the majority electorate’s interests at heart?

    You think about the desire for self-determination, responsive government, government for the citizens establishing and funding it… and settle on “racism.”

    Whatever.

    When did a children’s author who was on welfare most of her adult life until she made it rich with her books become a expert on anything besides ” implications of Brexit”

  • Sim

    Angela Merkel ( Hillary & Obama) and German industrialists ( U.S. tech international big business ) are willing to destroy their culture for cheaper labor and demographic renewal. They demanded the rest of the EU go along since Germany holds all the financial cards. British voters are not buying the EU argument, even though most of their elites are ardent globalists.( same as the U.S. )

  • Mike1288

    Exactly! It is fine for celebrities to have an opinion but they are not experts.

  • Mike1288

    I think the younger generation is scared of the unknown. The older generation have already been through a change and believe the Before was better. I guess we will have to see. Mind you there are plenty of countries not part of the EU that do just fine.

  • Mike1288

    Way to shut em down lol.

  • LindSAY

    You wish, we are going to let them cross. You just wait.
    They are going to be your problem.

  • Petra99

    Some of these comments by these “celebs” are just fraking ridiculous. Its NOT the end if the world!!

  • Petra99

    Read your comments again…they betray your true self. Sad. Hypocritical. Typical.

  • Petra99

    Some of them were just so hysterical and inane.

  • Petra99

    Don’t be so fucking stupid.

  • Petra99

    Ah, but no you see, peopke like Marie cannot…THEY are the most dangerous of all…people like Marie seethe with hatred and bigotry.

  • Petra99

    Yep! The liberals put peopke to death snd say “we dobthis to you out of love and for the greater good…” Sick, twisted evil fucks.

  • Petra99

    Hysterical nitwit.

  • Petra99

    So the majority was wrong? Some 17 + million people are all racists? You need help. People like you are the real threat to the world.

  • Petra99

    Some in the younger generation are mollycoddled lazy shits who will one day lose all of their freedom. Fact.

  • Jesus is coming…RUN!!!

    The media is hardly covering the migration crime rate. 3 family members in Spain and Italy homes were broken into. Migrants are starving and desperate, Nato and EU countries doesn’t have enough resources to offer aid to the migrants

  • Jesus is coming…RUN!!!

    It was absolutely stupid of Merkel to open welcome people and expect them to walk 1600km to get to Germany.

  • Jesus is coming…RUN!!!

    EU benefited from Britain. Just ask the 2.5 million EU worker employed in Britain and then there’s the EU red tape which has stifled entrepreneurialism.

  • Jesus is coming…RUN!!!

    All you need is a good PR team/plan to be a celeb

  • Jesus is coming…RUN!!!

    What affect could 2.5 million EU workers have on the health or housing system.

  • LenaAFoster

    I wasn’t shocked at all! Why? First, because I took a simple Google poll before the polls closed and it was 68% leave…but wait…isn’t it the PR line that elite celebrities are too “elite” to slum with the rest of us ordinary folk who actually surf the internet and comment on it? Second, if you’ve been monitoring any of those websites that monitor world uprisings over the last several years and/or have been studying the trends, what has been happening is that whereas riots and revolts and uprisings have traditionally throughout world history have been by the poverty class revolting against the rich, in recent times studies have shown employed and folks with housing in relatively stable lives being more likely to engage in uprisings and more hotspots in the world. Don’t believe me, the data is out there. But why? Because of centralized New World Order government power grabs like the EU which strip not only the poor but the middle and business classes of personal autonomy. No democratic representation and no balance of power with ridiculous oppressive regulation and control. The French Revolution was started and organized by the business class and not those in poverty. The difference is that whereas Stalin, Hitler etc and the French Revolution, the American Revolution were all limited to borders. As the power grabs by the few become more global, the Revolution will become more global…and it is cyclical… In 100 years it may be worse…I’m NOT surprised by these narcissistic celebrities taking this position. They walk red carpets and get special favors. They may have once been poor but once a person becomes wealthy, funny how quickly the amnesia sets in…I’m proud of ordinary Brits remembering that their country has been around for 2000? Years and will survive regardless of the bullying that the Remains have pushed on the voters over the past few months…congratulations UK! And the EU can suck it with its threats to retaliate against UK…Frexit, Auxit, Nexit, Grexit, think about who your countries are still stuck being married to…

  • LenaAFoster

    And I know WWII was global… I meant that Hitler was a German with a German movement…the Allies jumped in after they were forced in…the EU is/was 28 countries which modeled its Constitution after the Russian Constitution. Countries voluntarily joined…but…Why does a country like UK have to have 3 out of every 4 laws passed in its own country be mandated for passage by a group of non elected bureaucrats in Brussels who are established and directed by Russian cultural principals and not Anglo Saxon rules, etc?. UK was doing just fine before socialism was forced on it…
