The 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards were held Sunday night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA.  The SAG Awards followed in the wake of President Trump’s Muslim ban and executive order to practice “extreme vetting” upon immigrants and refugees entering the United States.  Many SAG Award-nominated celebrities were outraged by Trump’s actions, which led to an emotional and politically-charged night in Hollywood.

Mahershala Ali, who won for his supporting role in Moonlight, gave a personal and emotional speech about being a Muslim during Trump’s immigration ban.  In his speech, Ali explained how the film Moonlight teaches acceptance of those who are different instead of persecution.  Ali said, “I hope that we do a better job of that,” to the sounds of cheers and applause from the audience.  Ali continued to say how each person is unique and that we must accept each other, rather than “go to war.”  Ali revealed that his mother, an ordained minister, was not thrilled when he converted to Islam.  Ali said, “We put things to the side, and I’m able to see her, she’s able to see me.  We love each other, the love has grown, and that stuff is minutiae.  It’s not that important.”  You can watch the rest of Ali’s moving speech below.

Several other celebrities came to the SAG Awards with Trump’s immigration ban in mind.  Kerry Washington and Simon Helberg both showed up on the red carpet with visual protests of the Muslim ban.  Other celebrities who took the stage during the SAG Awards, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures), and David Harbour (Stranger Things) used the opportunity to address Trump’s actions and share poignant messages of unity.  THE WANNA has gathered some of the most moving and politically-minded moments of the 2017 SAG Awards below for you to enjoy.

Before Donald Trump’s Presidential victory, many celebrities said they planned to leave the country should Trump win the Election.  Lena Dunham, Cher, Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston, Jon Stewart, Amy Schumer and other celebs expressed a desire to move to Canada, or elsewhere.

Over the weekend in West Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, a street artist named Sabo created fake Sotheby’s realtor advertisements that seemingly encouraged these anti-Trump celebs to leave the country.  Sabo, who keeps his real name a secret, is a Los Angeles street artist who is known for his Conservative-minded, controversial works of art.  Each of his fake Sotheby’s ads contained a photo of Trump and one celebrity, including the country that celeb claimed they would choose to move to.

The ads also displayed the link to the website www.gtfooh.today, which includes all the fake Sotheby’s ads and a 7-minute video, “How to Move to Canada.”  The website’s headline goes, “Get the f**k out of here today.  Help make America and Hollywood great again.”

Sabo's previous art pieces include replacing photos of refugees with terrorists at a Refugee art exhibit, and painting a fake Rolling Stone cover with Lena Dunham, entitled “Rape Fantasies and How We Perpetuate Them.”  Last year, he made posters that depicted director J.J. Abrams and Barack Obama in a crude image entitled, “Presidential Circle Jerk.”
