Celebs Are Venting About Their Election Anxiety on Social Media

Lili Reinhart stress-eats and Chrissy Teigen shakily reassures us "everything's fine."

With several states predicting that their mail-in ballot counts won’t be in for several days, the United States is currently in a state of limbo, waiting to see who will be the next president. And yes, we’re all very nervous. The anxiety set in last night as the first polling stations began to close at 7 p.m. ET, and until a winner is declared, we predict that our collective nerves will only get worse before they eventually settle—if/when that even happens. Some celebs have taken to social media to express their concerns/fear/stress, and we can’t help but like and favorite every single post.

Lili Reinhart, “an emotional eater,” and Emmy Rossum started stress-eating at around 10 p.m. ET last night. Though Reinhart didn’t disclose her food of choice, Rossum tweeted that she downed a “bowl of zucchini and a bag of cookies” to help herself feel sane.

Elizabeth Banks attempted to cope with ice cream early in the evening, resorting to pacing back and forth to burn off both nervous energy and the gallon of dairy product she ate.

“Everything’s fine” over at Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s house. Teigen was “stress cooking” at the time she posted this tweet; however, it looks as though she couldn’t quite focus up and wrangle that avocado.

Padma Lakshmi summed up her mood with this Jim Carey GIF. Just trying to keep it together, people! That’s all!

Cardi B has taken up smoking (times three). She captioned this hilarious post, How these elections got me watching these states turn red. Yeah…same.

Ice T just served us this “ICE Cold Fact” and like, yeah. He’s right.

Honestly, we think being awake during your own surgery may be less awful than sitting through this purgatory.

Amanda Knox—yes, that Amanda Knox—is really trying to find a silver lining if the worst comes to fruition. We’re laughing, but also crying.

Comedian Ashley Nicole Black perfectly described how our brains are working right about now. Short-circuiting is an understatement.

And Lady Gaga is radiating positive energy, as she does best. We really needed that virtual hug.

Guys, it’ll be okay, right? We’ll be fine…won’t we? Let’s all take a collective deep breath, take a break from watching the news coverage, and pick a mindless activity to keep our stress at bay…for now.
