Ashton Kutcher, 38, is absolutely horrified by the executive order President Donald Trump, 70, signed which bans citizens of seven different Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States of America. As the first actor to appear on stage at the SAG Awards on Sunday night, January 29, The Ranch actor seized the opportunity to put the ban on blast.
“Good evening fellow SAG-AFTRA members and everyone at home, and everyone in airports that belong in my America,” Ashton said while staring directly into the camera, aggressively jabbing his finger into his chest. “You are a part of the fabric of who we are, and we love you and we welcome you,” he continued as the audience full of Hollywood stars applauded and cheered in agreement.
