Los Angeles: Stars including Mark Ruffalo, Jamie Lee Curtis and Josh Hutcherson joined thousands of Americans protesting Donald Trump's presidential victory.

Ruffalo shared footage on Instagram which showed him surrounded by thousands of people in New York holding placards chanting "hands too small, can't build a wall" to protest against Trump, who was declared the 45th US President in Tuesday's election, reported USA Today.

Ruffalo, who does not appear in the video, zoomed in on signs which read, "Liberty of all Americans" and "Donald Trump's victory does not speak for me" and various people stood outside the Trump Tower, the home of the new President and his Trump Organisation.
