Some American celebrities have urged Republican electors to stop president-elect, Donald Trump from getting to the white house.
Actors Martin Sheen and Debra Messing are joined by a host of other celebrities – including musician Moby – to ask Republican electors to not cast their vote for Trump on 19 December.
In a video clips recorded by the American known faces, they said Trump is not fit to be president of the United States, and therefore members of the Electoral College should block his entry to the White House.
Power of Celebrities
In theory, this can be achieved by the Electoral College.
It would take 37 Republican electors to vote for someone other than Mr Trump – thereby taking the party under the 270-vote threshold necessary for victory – to technically block his path to the White House.
This is the latest stance taken by celebrities against Mr Trump’s impending leadership. Others have been less direct.
Designers have refused to dress future First Lady Melania Trump, while some musicians have also rejected offers to sing at the inauguration.
Will the celebrities campaign be successful?
This is in stark contrast to his predecessor Barack Obama, who Beyonce performed for.
The only A-list celebrity that has publicly endorsed Mr Trump since his election is Kanye West.
Meanwhile, Trump’s opponent at the presidential poll, Hillary Clinton did had lots of celebrity supporters – on election night, actress Lena Dunham, singer Lady Gaga and comedian Amy Schumer were all in New York to support the Democrat they hoped would become the first female US leader.
They had all beeen vociferous campaigners for Mrs Clinton, as had Beyonce, whose plea to fans to vote for Mrs Clinton has had 2.4 million views to date.
In comparison, Mr Trump failed to attract any huge stars to support his campaign.
Yet Mr Trump won – suggesting celebrity endorsements do not have huge sway over voters.
