Celebrities rolled out the red carpet for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris after the Democratic ticket finally emerged as victorious Saturday following four days of vote counting.
Manhattan-born music superstar Lady Gaga, who performed at a drive-in rally for now President-elect Biden in Pittsburgh earlier this week, shared a photo of the event Saturday, writing that Biden, Harris and the American people “just gave the world one of the greatest acts of kindness and bravery humanity has ever seen."
Gaga, 34, also included a crying emoji and red heart, adding, “Nothing but love for our new Commander in Chief and the 1ST female VP elected to the White House. Also, way to go PA, ” she wrote, referencing Pennsylvania eventually turning blue after the days-long count.
Actor, director and producer Elizabeth Banks wrote that she was crying “happy tears.”
“I’m so so so relieved, ” wrote The Hunger Games actress. “Congrats @JoeBiden I am crying at the thought of @KamalaHarris as Vice President of the United States - wow wow wow.”
Tears of joy were a common theme found on timelines across Twitter.
They were used by singer Ariana Grande (“CRYING... THANK GOD”), Comedian Jane Lynch (“I am crying liberal tears”), and actress Mandy Moore (“In tears. What a moment!”).
