History In the Making: See how celebrities have reacted to the UK's Shocking Vote To Leave the European Union

Text: Grace Walker

The world woke up to the bleak news that the United Kingdom will be leaving the European Union, in what is being called the Brexit, the British Exit. Following a 51.9% majority for the Leave campaign, talks will now begin to negotiate terms, but with no solid plans in place for either Britain or the EU, futures are looking uncertain.  And with such a tight split of opinion, mood in the UK is unsurprisingly divided. Whilst Leavers celebrate "Independence Day," the remaining half of the population—notably the younger generation—harbor feelings of disappointment. However, such a monumental decision will not only have repercussions for the UK, but is already affecting the economy of Europe and the rest of the world, too.

As a way of gaging immediate opinion on the historic result, we've rounded up some of the most striking posts from notable artists, musicians and authors.
