Members Of SLIPKNOT, MÖTLEY CRÜE, FEAR FACTORY And Others React To DONALD TRUMP's Win Over HILLARY CLINTON

Members of SLIPKNOT, MÖTLEY CRÜE, TRIVIUM, FEAR FACTORY, SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL THAT REMAINS, OTEP, STRYPER, ANTHRAX and LIVING COLOUR are among the rockers who have reacted on social media to Donald Trump winning the presidential election.

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor was among the most vocal critics of the president-elect, writing on Twitter: "I didn't think my country could be this fucking stupid or hateful. I'm disgusted. I won't tell you 'I told you so' when he tries to fuck you."

He added in a separate tweet: "Do yourself a favor: find some friends in the black/latino/LGBT+ communities tonight. They're going to need your help- possibly protection."

STRYPER frontman Michael Sweet wrote on Facebook: "Folks, with all due respect, I simply congratulated a man who has worked his ass off for the presidency of the United States of America. If you choose to unfriend me, unfollow me or stop supporting me, don't let the door hit you on the way out. To be honest, it's time to clean house and I'm happy to see the hateful people go. This world needs less of that as well as my Facebook page. If you don't like me being gracious and respectful of our next President, then by all means, see ya. God Bless the USA."

Over the past year, several musicians have joked that they planned on leaving the country if the real estate mogul was voted in as commander-in-chief.

Trump shocked the political establishment Tuesday by becoming the 45th president in one of the biggest upsets in U.S. political history. He collected enough of the 270 state-by-state electoral votes needed to win a four-year term that starts on January 20.

Trump won with 289 electoral votes compared to 218 for Hillary Clinton.

Several Republican-leaning rockers had publicly come out in support of Trump, including STAIND's Aaron Lewis, Kid Rock, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory and ARMORED SAINT drummer Gonzo Sandoval.
