While millions of voters across the country are celebrating and congratulating President Obama on his re-election, there are an outspoken few that are decidedly, and vocally, unhappy with it.

The tight 2012 race saw endorsements from some of the entertainment world's major players on both sides of the aisle, with actresses Eva Longoria and Scarlett Johansson, for example, throwing their support behind Obama, to reality TV star Donald Trump and rocker Kid Rock throwing their weight behind Romney.

As the results came in Tuesday night and the election was eventually called for Obama, some famous Romney fans took to their social media accounts to express frustration and vent their rage. Here's a look:

Perhaps the most hostile of Obama's detractors is conservative rocker and National Rifle Association board of directors member Ted Nugent. This spring at the annual NRA convention in St. Louis, the "Cat Scratch Fever" singer made a loaded threat that could lead to some questions over the next six months.

"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," he said. "Why are you laughing? Do you think that's funny? That's not funny at all. I'm serious as a heart attack."

Nugent went on to criticize Obama's "vile, evil, America-hating administration" at the event, saying, "Our president, attorney general, our vice president, Hillary Clinton, they're criminals."

His comments even earned him a visit from the Secret Service, but that didn't stop him from venting further overnight.

On Twitter early Tuesday morning, Nugent slammed the idea of a vote for "Obama & vote for US Constitution hating SCOTUS crazies." Later, in a follow-up stream of tweets to his 100,000-plus followers, he announced he would "cry tears of blood for The Last Best Place" and called voters "soulless fools," and, "pimps whores & welfare brats."

Nugent has yet to chime in on his "dead or in jail" comments, but since he gave himself a year at the April speech, we will just have to wait and see.

Donald Trump

Donald Trump has been another strong voice this election year, considering his "birther" claims against President Obama, rumors of his possible GOP presidential bid and an alleged "bombshell" October surprise that fizzled.

After Obama's win was called, Trump tweeted a rather innocuous comment: "Well, back to the drawing board."

But over the next few hours, he called the election a "total sham and a travesty," and said that the "electoral college is a disaster for a democracy."

Trump then suggested to his nearly two million followers that the gridlock that has plagued Washington politics should continue during Obama's second term, saying, "House of Representatives shouldn't give anything to Obama unless he terminates Obamacare."

This morning, Trump ceased his political tweets and shared with his followers news of his donations to victims of Superstorm Sandy, slammed NBC anchor Brian Williams, and said Mitt Romney "never connected with the people."

Former "Saturday Night Live" star and comedian Victoria Jackson made headlines over the past year for some controversial comments, including a suggestion on her Internet talk show "Politichicks" that President Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and suggestions on "The Howard Stern Show" that gay marriage will "make God mad."

After Obama's victory, Jackson, in a flurry of Internet posts, announced the death of America, telling her followers that she "can't stop crying," and taking Christians to task for not voting.

"America died," she wrote on her Twitter feed. "I can't stop crying. America died."

Jackson also posted on her Facebook page an image of a tombstone that said, "RIP America."

Later, she tweeted, "Thanks a lot Christians, for not showing up. You disgust me."

Melissa Joan Hart

Arriving a bit late to the game, "Sabrina" and "Melissa and Joey" actress Melissa Joan Hart tweeted earlier this week that she was throwing her support behind Mitt Romney. On Monday, she simply tweeted, "Can't get too political in only 140 chac but for those asking, I'm voting #RomneyRyan," and with that, she ignited thousands for and against her.

Over the next few hours and days, Hart has tweeted responses and comments suggesting that she has been attacked by Twitter users on issues such as gay rights, women's rights, health care and the economy.

Later on Monday, Hart tweeted to her more-than-250,000 followers, "So let me get this straight... I have the right to chose an abortion but not the right to vote for whomever I chose? #election2012."

As Election Day came and went, Hart focused on encouraging people to vote, but she did respond to one Twitter follower, @wbsmile, last night, who wrote to her "LOSER! you lost!" by responding, "Last i checked we live in the same country so i hope for our sake u r wrong!"
