Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, shocked by the news of Donald Trump's victory, told his staff Wednesday to be kind with other people and, to "find the best version of ourselves to help our country move on in the direction we all deserve," according to a report in Fortune.

Trump won the race by a slim margin despite early reports that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would take it by a landslide.

Schultz, who has publicly slammed Trump, endorsed Clinton for president in September. Soon after, Trump supporters called for boycotting the mega-coffee chain.

Schultz wrote Wednesday that, "Like so many of our fellow Americans — both Democrats and Republicans — I am stunned. We cannot know what the precise impact will be on our country and the rest of the world. I am hopeful that we will overcome the vitriol and division of this unprecedented election season."

Schultz, though, told his staff to respect the democratic process and give Trump the opportunity to "govern well and bring our country together."

The CEO is one of many public figures who have broadcast their distaste for Trump.

Others include former first lady Barbara Bush, George Clooney, Lady Gaga, J.K. Rowling, Stephen Hawking and Michael Moore.
