The Hollywood Reporter

As results for the presidential election began rolling in Tuesday night, Hollywood began to panic on social media, with several starting to plan their moves to Canada. 

As of Tuesday evening in Los Angeles, Donald Trump led with 136 electoral votes, while Hillary Clinton had 104. Celebrities took to Twitter to share their panic that the results were so close in several regions. 

Trump currently is winning West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, South Carolina, Nebraska, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Louisiana. Clinton's current state tally currently includes Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware and the District of Columbia, Vermont, Illinois, Rhode Island, New York and Connecticut. 

Closer races were shaping up in Florida and several other battlegrounds as Hollywood followed the race closely and shared their thoughts online. 

The Canada Citizenship and Immigration site crashed around 8 p.m.
