US President Donald Trump delivered a crushing blow to the American people on Wednesday by announcing a total ban on transgender people serving in the military.
The President chose Twitter — seriously, is that the most appropriate channel to deliver the news? — to declare the government "will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military".
Obviously, the shocking and irrational decision was slammed by a host of politicians, celebrities and concerned citizens. Here's a round up of the best celebrity reactions that have us nodding our head in agreement:
Blake Lively captioned the above Instagram photo with: "THIS is America. WE the people. ALL THE PEOPLE. Today I stand with our fellow citizens. No human being is a burden. I believe in equality. In freedom. In opportunity. In kindness, acceptance, and fairness. I believe in this country, so I, and many others, sign the petition linked in the bio. Please join..💙💗🇺🇸💗💙" She included a link to a Change.org petition to try to prevent the ban from going ahead.
