Did you stay up all night waiting for results for the 2020 election? Did you stress-eat your weight in junk food? Did you become more familiar with the voice of CNN correspondent (and Boston Latin grad) John King than that of your own mother?

If you’ve experienced some serious election-related stress during the last 24 hours, you’re not alone. Even celebrities — many of whom have been outspoken about their opposition to President Donald Trump — found themselves reduced to puddles of anxiety Tuesday night.

Cardi B, who has used her platform to stump for Democratic candidates including Joe Biden, kept Instagram followers laughing through the stress.

“How these elections got me watching these states turn red,” the rapper wrote, captioning a video of her smoking three cigarettes simultaneously.

Actress Sharon Stone admitted that she was in tears while watching the returns.

“Am I the only one who is watching election returns and just crying?” Stone said, revealing red eyes amid sniffles. “Just watching them and crying, and that’s it?”
