J.K. Rowling wishes magic could reverse Britain’s decision to leave the European Union (EU).

The Harry Potter author had been a vocal advocate for the Remain campaign, and admitted her disappointment after it was confirmed on Friday morning that the British public had voted to exit the EU.


“I don’t think I’ve ever wanted magic more,” Rowling tweeted, before adding, “Scotland will seek independence now. (British Prime Minister David) Cameron’s legacy will be breaking up two unions. Neither needed to happen.”

Former Gavin and Stacey actor James Corden, who moved to Los Angeles earlier this year to host The Late Late Show, was also campaigning for the Remain camp, and wrote on Friday morning: “I can’t get my head around what’s happening in Britain. I’m so sorry to the youth of Britain. I fear you’ve been let down today.”

Lily Allen, who has religiously campaigned for Britain to stay in the EU, wrote: “Well millennials. We’re really really f**ked.

“How’s that stronger economy and NHS looking?”

When one of her fans said she’d been crying over the result, Allen replied: “I’ve been crying since Swindon, not even joking.”

She then shared the video for her famous hit “F**k You,” writing: “I wrote this song about narrow minded bigots, you can have it @realdonaldtrump and ur crew.”

Model Alexa Chung chose to express her disappointment with a string of curse words, followed by an emoji of a broken heart.

Actor Stephen Merchant tried to make the situation humorous, by writing: “Trump said leave. Scottish said remain. If this triggers secession, Scots should stay in, just to keep Trump’s golf course in the EU. Smirk.”

Business mogul Lord Alan Sugar found it difficult to put his anger across, replying to one of his followers that he had “no words” about the decision. When someone else asked him why he was so concerned, he replied: “Not for me. For you and the young generation.”
