As the world digests Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential election, famous Kiwis who live and work State-side have shown how they feel about the proceedings.
Singer Lorde, who only a day earlier had celebrated her 20th birthday with a seriously star-studded party in New York, sombrely told her Twitter fans that "In my ears there's just roaring."

Meanwhile, Los Angeles-based actress Kim Crossman told her Instagram followers she was feeling "very homesick" following the election result.
New Bachelor NZ host Dominic Bowden shared an image from his Dancing With The Stars gig in the US earlier this year, where he interviewed Trump's daughter, Tiffany.
"The closest I want to get to Trump, iv'ing his ex wife and daughter dressed as Jafar (sic)," he wrote.
Prior to polls closing in the US, actress and iZombie star Rose McIver showed she was also on Team Clinton, urging her social media followers to vote for Hillary "because she stands for progress, is overwhelmingly better than the alternative and is the candidate who is capable of leading America".
When it became apparent that Trump, and not Clinton, was going to triumph, McIver shared a famous Martin Luther King quote and urged people to "spread love".
Meanwhile, director Taika Waititi welcomed America to the year 1933, before asking "What's the quickest way to get my money out of your country?"

Ps. What's the quickest way to get my money out of your country?
David Farrier, who has spent a large amount of time in the US this year promoting his documentary Tickled, also loudly voiced his displeasure at Trump's victory.

Although Farrier did look on the bright side, tweeting: "I guess the good thing about being a New Zealander in America is that I can just go back to New Zealand."
