LONDON, June 24 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan was among the celebrities who took to social media to express their opinions regarding the "Brexit" or the United Kingdom's decision Thursday to exit the European Union.
Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation after the public voted by a narrow margin for independence against his vehement objections.
"One thing for sure the #referendum results are very close, but also showing a difference of opinion across #Britain," Lohan said in a tweet that has since been taken down.
Yet another Lohan-penned, deleted social-media message read: "This goes for the USA too #besmart I am getting extremely tired and off to sleep. With that being said, I am praying for the uk to #remain as it will have an effect on our next American president as well. Do your research."
"Brexiteers like the cheating man shocked he can't stay in the spare room for 2 years while he sorts himself out," British Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling wrote. "Proud to be part of #TheIndecentMinority."
"The UK may be in economic crisis but at least Donald Trump has turned up," tweeted British comedian Ricky Gervais, referring to the U.S. presidential candidate's arrival in Scotland for a weekend business trip. "I just bought back all the sterling I converted to dollars yesterday. I'm now a billionaire! So, every cloud."
"Am baffled by Nigel Farage's claim that Brexit is a victory for 'real people'. As if the 47% voting remain are [expletive] Smurfs or something," English filmmaker Edgar Wright chimed in.
"Inevitable independence for Scotland and a real possibility of a referendum for a United Ireland....Every cloud," Irish Downton Abbey alum Brendan Coyle offered.
"Project Fear was clearly Project Fact...," said U.K. actor James Purefoy.
"IN #europeanandproud #Beinformed #EU #Remain #regram @hirst_official," British actress Jenna Coleman said earlier this week before the vote.
