The biggest names in Hollywood took to social media to celebrate the win of United States President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
On Saturday, November 7 (U.S. time), four days after the 59th quadrennial presidential election held November 3, 2020, the American media called it a win for the Democratic Party's Biden-Harris tandem.
At press time, Biden had secured 290 electoral college votes—the winning candidate needs 270—to become the 46th President of the United States.
Harris—daughter of Donald Harris, Jamaican-born British economics professor and intellectual and Shyamala Gopalanan, an Indian scientist and feminist—also made history for being the first female, first Black, and first Asian American Vice-President of the most powerful country in the world.
Eleven-time Grammy Award-winner Lady Gaga, who actively campaigned for Biden and Harris, wrote an emotional message for the victors on Instagram.
The "Rain on Me" singer uploaded a photo of herself hugging Biden with the caption: "@joebiden @KamalaHarris and the American people, you just gave the world one of the greatest acts of kindness and bravery humanity has ever seen. [emojis] nothing but love for our new Commander in Chief and the 1ST female VP elected to the White House. Also, way to go PA [emojis]."
