Leading up to the election, dozens of celebrities vowed to hightail it out of the country if Donald Trump was elected president. Now that the Republican nominee has won, most of them are changing their stories.

The comedian was just kidding about getting out of here.

“First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest,” Schumer began a lengthy Instagram post on Wednesday. “Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser.”

“All of us said that,” Sharpton told a TMZ cameraman. “That was said in jest. We’re not going anywhere. Clearly, it was said in jest. If that’s the comfort they got, they might as well get ready for an uncomfortable ride.”

The “Breaking Bad” actor previously said he would move out of the country permanently.

“I would definitely move,” Cranston said. “It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

But he changed his mind, too.

“Although shocked and disappointed by the outcome, I hope the pres-elect will work to unify our wounded country,” he tweeted. “I sincerely wish him success.”
