HOLLYWOOD CAN'T STOP TRUMP BUT SPRINGSTEEN, LAWRENCE AND MANY MORE CONTINUE TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE IMMIGRATION BAN!
Last week, Donald Trump signed an executive order, known as the “Muslim ban,” that barred refugees and people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. Thousands of Americans have joined forces to protest the immigration ban since then, including a number of famous faces. Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Lawrence, and Arnold Schwarzenegger are some of the celebrities who have spoken out or taken action against the ban. THE WANNA has compiled a list of all the celebs who have made a stand against Trump’s immigration order below.
Bruce Springsteen sent a strong political message at his recent concert in Adelaide, Australia. On stage Springsteen addressed, “the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign Nationals and refugees.” He continued: “America is a land of immigrants. This is fundamentally un-American. This is a song about immigrants.” He then performed, “American Land,” to cheers from the crowd.
Jennifer Lawrence shared a heartfelt message on Facebook, which took a jab at the Trump administration:
After a bigoted Twitter user told Kal Penn, “You don’t belong in this country,” Penn created a crowd-funding campaign to aid Syrian refugees in response to the hater. Penn’s crowdrise page is called, “Donating to Syrian refugees in the name of the dude who said I don’t belong in America.” The page states: “We are better than the hateful people who tell us we don't belong in our own country, that America can't be a beacon of freedom and hope for refugees from around the world. We will turn their bigotry, along with the President's, into love.” So far, the fundraiser has raised over $750,000.
Sia pledged to match up to $100,000 in donations to the American Civil Liberties Union the day after Trump signed the immigration order. Sia tweeted:
This prompted other celebrities to follow suit, including Rosie O’Donnell and Judd Apatow, who vowed to join Sia in her donations pledge.
Bella and Gigi Hadid
The Hadid sisters, both of Muslim descent, joined others on the streets of New York to protest the Muslim ban. The duo held a sign that said, “We are all Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Jews,” highlighting the letters that spell out the word “humans.” Other celebs to join the Muslim ban protests include Ellen Page and Chloe Grace Moretz.
Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke out about Trump’s Muslim ban in an interview with Mario Lopez on Extra. Schwarzenegger, who Trump recently mocked for his Celebrity Apprentice ratings on Twitter, discussed the way in which Trump went about creating the ban. Schwarzenegger said, “I think the real problem is that it was vetted badly. If they would run this by the Justice Department and Homeland Security and had the lawyers really study and focus on it and give it some time to do it the right way.” He continued, “To go and ban people who have a green card, that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently and you are on the way to permanent citizenship. I was in that position. It’s crazy, it’s crazy and makes us look stupid when the White House is ill-prepared to put this kind of executive order out there.”
