DJs React to Donald Trump’s Victory



We were shocked when the U.K. voted for Brexit, but we’re reeling from Donald Trump’s upset victory in the presidential election. While the mainstream media, analysts and pundits collectively poo-pooed Trump’s chances of winning — the New York Times predicted on Monday that Hillary Clinton had an 84 percent chance of winning — in the end they all got it completely wrong. Trump’s victory feels like a punch in the gut to those of us who see the world with optimism, love and compassion, not racism, misogyny and hatred. While Trump struck a conciliatory note in his acceptance speech, his prior actions negate us from lending his words any credibility.

As the stinging news sinks in DJs including Erol Alkan, Lifelike, Groove Armada, Moby and Laurent Garnier have weighed in on the outcome on Twitter. Here’s an assortment of poignant tweets.
