CELEBS TWEET IN SUPPORT OF TRANSGENDERS AFTER TRUMP LIFTS BATHROOM PROTECTION LAWS

On Wednesday, the Donald Trump administration reversed Barack Obama’s federal protection laws that allowed transgender students to use whichever bathroom corresponds to their gender identity.  The White House explained Trump’s decision in a statement: "As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level.  The joint decision made today by the Department of Justice and the Department of Education paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators."

The reversal sparked protests and angered several civil rights groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union.  The LGBT project director for the ACLU, James Esseks, said: "Revoking the guidance shows that the president's promise to protect LGBT rights was just empty rhetoric.  But the bottom line is that this does not undo legal protections for trans students, and school districts can and must continue to protect them and all students from discrimination.  School districts that recognize that should continue doing the right thing; for the rest, we'll see them in court."

Obama’s decision to protect transgender rights in the bathroom had previously been celebrated among civil rights groups, including the ACLU.  The group wrote about Obama’s move: “This is a BIG deal – the federal government just made history and set clear standards to protect transgender people!”

Several celebrities took to Twitter to express their outrage at Trump revoking the protections, and show their support of the transgender community.  THE WANNA has gathered the reaction tweets below.

Early Monday morning, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in a private Paris mansion where she had stayed for Paris Fashion Week.  The five assailants, disguised as police officers, forced the mansion concierge to let them into her private suite, where two of them entered and forced Kim into the bathroom at gunpoint.  They stole jewelry worth millions of dollars, and two cell phones.  A spokesperson for Kim said she was, "badly shaken but physically unharmed."
After news broke about the incident, tons of people on Twitter responded with messages of disdain for Kim and cracked jokes at her expense.  One user, Tim Hanlon, said, "Kim Kardashian was robbed at gun point. Police are going through the 3759 selfies she took during the ordeal, trying to get a discription."
