President Donald Trump caused outrage all over the world on the weekend after he passed an executive order banning visitors to the US from certain Muslim countries.
The temporary ban affects visitors entering the US from Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya and Yemen for at least 90 days, as an attempt to protect the US from “radical Islamic terrorists.” Trump has also been criticised for choosing to exclude Muslim nations that he does business with (eg. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt).
In true Trump style, he took to Twitter to explain why he had signed the order.
Celebrities have taken to Twitter to speak out against the harsh order. Kim Kardashian hit back with this particularly well-placed tweet, which draws attention to the problem with the lack of gun control in the US and its citizens compared to immigrants.
Novelist John Green also spoke out about the Muslim visitors being detained at airports, and made an urgent plea to parents.
Rihanna also lent her voice to the issue on both Twitter and Instagram.
“the face you make when you a immigrant #stayawayfromthechickens #iheartnuggets #saveourhens.”
Miley Cyrus tweeted a simple message of solidarity with immigrants.
While comedian Billy Eichner had some more… choice words for Donald Trump.
More celebrities voiced their disgust about the whole thing.
Given that Kim’s husband Kanye West has met with Donald Trump, we wonder how he feels about this whole thing?
