During Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony on Friday morning, a vocal, principally liberal Hollywood crowd took to Twitter to voice their responses during and after the ceremony.

Reactions were mixed; some featuring dark jokes responding to the inauguration, and others urged their followers to respond and make their voices heard.

Comedian Chris Rock posted a photo featuring the words "Don't forget to set your clocks back 300 years tonight."

Alec Baldwin tweeted: "All of the jokes/parody/comedy aside, let's stop for a moment to take a full account of where we are. This country is lost. It's in trouble."

Chrissy Teigen joked about one of the prayers said during the ceremony, tweeting "what a beautiful prayer. makes me wanna grab my puss."

Olivia Wilde tweeted, "First hand report from the inauguration crowd. Unreal," citing reporter Jared Yates Sexton's tweet that says, "You can't walk a few feet without hearing a racial or homophobic slur."

Shortly after the conclusion of the inauguration ceremony, Adele simply tweeted a photo of Barack Obama waving goodbye, captioning the photo with an emoji of a hand holding up the piece sign.

Shia LaBeouf tweeted a photo of Jaden Smith standing in front of LaBeouf's latest art project.

The project, a wall in front of New York City's Museum of Moving Images that features the words "He will not divide us," has a mounted camera that urges passersby to stand in front of the wall and repeat the wall's words as a form of protest for the new presidency.

Dean Norris, one of the main actors of hit TV show Breaking Bad, has shared a teasing selfie video on Twitter with the Washington Monument in the background. 

"Tickling the balls of democracy," he wrote. 

George Lopez turned his twitter avatar all brown in protest of the inauguration, tweeting "In urge Latinos and people who support us to [join] me and #Brownout on your Avatar #chingon."

Producer Shonda Rhimes responded to Hillary Clinton's tweet, saying "Maturity, grace and oh boy, is she going high when they went low."

Ms Clinton's original tweet cited her primary cause for attending the inauguration, saying, "I'm here today to honor our democracy & its enduring values. I will never stop believing in our country & its future. #Inauguration"
