Donald Trump signed an executive order Jan. 27 to ban refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries. A-list stars like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna are NOT having it, voicing their frustrations via social media. Read the angry tweets here!
Donald Trump, 70, signed a very serious and controversial executive order on Jan. 27, banning refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States for at least 90 days. Needless to say, people from all over the country were enraged — including stars like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus. Luckily, a federal court granted an emergency stay on Jan. 28 blocking the deportation of migrants detained at airports around the United States. However, that didn’t stop the stars from speaking their minds with very profound and angry tweets!
Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!!

To our Muslim neighbors in the world: I & tens of millions of others are so very sorry. The majority of Americans did not vote 4 this man.

Donald Trump is an unwell, evil human being. To the core.

Twitter is built by immigrants of all religions. We stand for and with them, always.

We have a long & proud tradition of accepting refugees who seek safety in the US after thorough vetting. That tradition should continue.

I stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values & our Constitution. This is not who we are.

Rihanna wrote, “Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!” Miley shared a montage of colorful photos of the Statue of Liberty with a caption that read, “stand with immigrants.” John Legend lent his services to a helpful cause, while also reaching out to others, “I just made a donation to @theIRC to support refugees fleeing war and despair. Join me if you can.” His wife, Chrissy Teigen added, “Donald Trump is an unwell, evil human being. To the core.”
Mark Ruffalo explained, “Trump’s Muslim entry ban targets refugees, not terrorists – and skips over his own business interests… sad…unfair.” Meanwhile, Michael Moore also voiced his sincerest apologies with a heartfelt post reading, “To our Muslim neighbors in the world: I & tens of millions of others are so very sorry. The majority of Americans did not vote 4 this man.” That was only the start of the outrage caused by Donald’s executive order, which also suspended the admission of all refugees for 120 days.
It seems their voices, among many others, were heard loud and clear. Under the issued stay, none of the travelers held at airports across the nation can be sent back. This news came shortly after innocent immigrants and refugees were detained and chaos ensued at major airports throughout the country. The stars are clearly ready to take a stand and fight for the cause!
