Hollywood in Total Meltdown; Slams Donald Trump’s #MuslimBan as ‘Disgusting,’ ‘Disturbing’
Donald Trump’s executive order banning refugees from mostly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days has Hollywood fuming.
“Trump’s #MuslimBan is against the law,” “House of Cards” creator Beau Willimon tweeted Saturday. “The 1965 Immigration & Naturalization Act eliminated national origins as a basis for immigration.”
“Silicon Valley” star Kumail Nanjiani tweeted: “This #MuslimBan is also messing up attendance at our bi-weekly ‘Undermine Western Civilization’ meetings.”
Issa Rae called the ban “disgusting and disturbing,” and actress Emmy Rossum tweeted that she couldn’t “believe he’s actually doing the disgusting unconstitutional things he promised to do. The Muslim ban is awful & will not be tolerated. “
On Friday, Trump overhauled American refugee policy, signing an executive order banning all immigrants from seven Muslim countries from entering the US for 90 days.
The president’s action also bars all refugee from entering the country for 120 days and bans Syrian refugees indefinitely.
The order, which was signed on Holocaust Remembrance Day, sparked backlash and protests around the country.
