As Donald Trump has won the presidential election, a one-time joke of moving to Canada has taken a more serious tone for many Americans.
So much so, Canada’s immigration and citizenship website crashed earlier today as more people began looking into the possibility of leaving the US.
Notables and celebrities who ‘vowed’ to move to Canada after Trump’s victory may or may not be regretting their hyperbolised claims but we bring you the list of people who you should be expecting to leave the US.
The superstar singer Cher had been constantly expressing all her feelings via Twitter during election season. “If he were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter,” she tweeted last year.
@gabeAlfassy IF HE WERE TO BE ELECTED,IM MOVING TO JUPITER 😖

Bryan had once said during ‘The Bestseller Experiment podcast’ that “I would definitely move,” he said “It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
Amy Schumer said she’s bound for Spain should Hillary Clinton lose.
“My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere,” she said. “It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.”
Streisand told “60 Minutes” in Australia that she was worried about the election results.
“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” she reportedly told Australian journalist Michael Usher in August.
The comedian would take refuge in Mexico. “If he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration, we’ll all go back,” he told TMZin February.
The political satirist would also select something out of this world. “I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers,” he told reporters in September 2015.
The “Orange Is the New Black” star would call a “mental hospital” home, she said during a Starz video released in January.
The former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant didn’t give a specific location. “I can’t even think about it! I’m moving, I’m out! I can’t. And I am taking my son with me!” she told Us Weekly in March.
Samuel L. Jackson:
South Africa would be the destination of choice for the famous actor. “[Trump’s] just running for popularity. C’mon, just let it go,” he said on “The View” in June.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
The Supreme Court justice might abandon the U.S. for New Zealand. “I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president … Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,” she told the New York Times in July.
The “Wrecking Ball” singer called Trump a “nightmare” on Instagram in February, but she didn’t say where she would go if he wins.
The star doesn’t have a specific destination in mind, but she has the cash to afford a move. “Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know,” she said on “The View” in January. “I can afford to go.”
The former Disney star has said she would uproot her whole family. “My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated, I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family. Is that bad?” she told her “View” co-hosts in February. “I already have my ticket … No, I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
The Rev. Al Sharpton:
The activist has promised to book a plane ticket, as well. “If Donald Trump is the nominee … I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins. Only because he’d probably have me deported anyhow,” he said at a Center for American Progress event in February.
The “Girls” creator vowed to retreat to Canada. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there,” Dunham said at the Matrix Awards in April. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will.”
The “House of Cards” actress is a native Canadian and would relocate to Ontario. “I’m terrified,” she told Huffington Post UKin January. “It’s really scary. My biggest fear is that Trump will triumph.”
Like her peers, Sevigny would seek asylum in Canada. Specifically, she’s selected Nova Scotia, she said in a January Starz video.
Free Sex to voters!
Some even went further and offered free sex to anyone who votes against Trump. The sex services were available for both, anti and pro voters of Trump but no report has been received whether they are going to fulfill their promises or not.
Celebrated singer promised sexual favors in exchange for support of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“If you vote for Hillary Clinton, I will give you a blowjob. OK?” the 58-year-old Rebel Heart singer told an audience at New York’s Madison Square Garden Tuesday night. “I’m really good. I’m not a douche, and I’m not a tool. I take my time, I have a lot of eye contact, and I do swallow.”
Mia reportedly offered her oral services to Donald Trump voters.
“Who on their right mind would offer oral for voting for a criminal? I will give you a free oral if you vote for Donald Trump. Now, it’s time to choose not only who you want for president, but also who you want a [sic] oral job from. This is war,” The Lebanese actress claimed.
Angelina Castro and Maggie Green:
Two porn stars offered free oral sex to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.
Angelina Castro and Maggie Green announced that they will offer free oral sex to anyone who votes against Donald Trump.
“It’s very simple,” Castro says in a promotional video. “All you have to do is vote against the orange clown. No brainer.”
