Celebrities took to their social media accounts over the weekend to protest President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily suspending the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.
On Friday, the President signed an executive order titled, “Protection Of The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States,” which Trump says established “new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America.”
It didn’t take long for some of Hollywood biggest stars and most outspoken political activists to jump on their Twitter accounts to express outrage at Trump’s latest actions.
Below is a roundup of Hollywood’s reactions to the executive order.

I have worked for decades on religious tolerance. @realDonaldTrump’s Muslim ban is against everything this country was founded on. Shameful.
