Shocked. Disappointed. Confused. Elated. Uncertain. Britons took to social media on Friday (June 24) to express their feelings toward Britain's historic decision to leave the European Union.
Over 33 million eligible voters turned out for the momentous vote nicknamed "Brexit" across the globe. In the end, 51.9 percent voted to leave, while 48.1 percent voted to remain. By morning, Prime Minister David Cameron had announced his resignation.
It's a complicated issue, one that could have "devastating" effects on the British economy and the U.K. film and TV industry. Famous Britons, including Harry Potter scribe J.K. Rowling and late-night host James Corden, reacted to the history-making news in shock and disbelief.
But first, just days before the vote, Daniel Radcliffe associated the Brexit movement to Donald Trump's presidential campaign in the United States.
"Brexit is really scary," Radcliffe told Vulture before the referendum passed by a close margin early Friday morning. "I obviously want us to stay. There are economic reasons -- but the main reason is that, in this era, divided we fall."
"We're all just human beings and that should be the thing that I think is celebrated about us rather than tiny, petulant differences," he added. "But it's really scary. Similar to the Trump thing, I feel like we started off being like, It'll never happen. Don't worry about it. And now it's like, Oh no, we could not be a part of Europe in what is it -- a few days?"
On Friday morning, Britain woke up to the reality of Brexit, as results from the EU Referendum came in overnight. Those who supported Remain were in complete shock.
Some were devastated.
While others were ashamed.
A rare few didn't even have the words to express what they were feeling.
Others attempted to make light of the situation.
And some even found a silver lining.
Of course, not everyone was disappointed in the EU referendum result.
But the larger implications of Britain's historic vote were clear.
