President Trump’s executive order to indefinitely stop all Syrian refugees from entering the United States and temporarily suspending the refugee program hasn’t gone down well with many all around the world. And amongst those thousands of protestors were Hollywood celebrities who could not stomach the events that unfolded all over America. The immigration ban blocks travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries for 90 days and suspends the admission of refugees from those countries for 120 days. A number of stars took to Twitter to voice their disapproval of such a ban using the hashtag #MuslimBan.
KimK won our hearts with this simple tweet and captioned it as “Statistics"

Moore, meanwhile, felt that an apology was needed to all those who were affected.
To our Muslim neighbors in the world: I & tens of millions of others are so very sorry. The majority of Americans did not vote 4 this man.

Miley shared this picture on Instagram, which spoke a thousand words. It clearly stood for equality, regardless of gender, religion, and race.
Chloe Moretz (Insta)
Chloe has a very clear point here, don’t you think?
JLo put up this picture on her Insta profile and clearly stated that America is a land of immigrants and such bans are a big NO.
John did his best to help the refugees and called out to others for donation.

Ashton stood up against the policy and voiced his opinion quite clearly.
If standing for the America that doesn't discriminate makes me a left wing actor who is out of touch. Fuck it.

Lawrence prayed for “sanity” to return to the White House. LOL.
Degeneres is not the one to keep shut during such situations.
For me, America is great because of all the people who came here. Not in spite of them. #NoBan
