Hollywood Reacts To Trump's Trans Military Ban


Donald Trump kicked off his Wednesday with a series of tweets announcing a ban on transgender people from serving in the military.

Well a lot of celebs have criticized his move saying it's so wrong. Lady Gaga, John Mayer and even Kim Kardashian lend her voice against this with lots more saying the ban is unaccepted.

     @POTUS Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?

    The message you have just sent has endangered the lives of people all over the United States and overseas bravely serving our nation @POTUS

    .@Potus Research says at least 1/2 of High School, University Students, & Employed Young People rarely/never discuss mental issues w/ anyone

    7/26/17: The day it became empirically clear this is pathological, not political. #transrightsarehumanrights

    Impeachment-- where are we in regards to that process and how can we speed things along?
    Trump is a disgrace #TransRightsAreHumanRights

    Banning transgender people from serving our country is simply wrong. We should be so grateful to anybody who wants to serve, not ban them!
    — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 26, 2017

    There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them? https://t.co/WzjypVC8Sr

    We should be grateful to the people who wish to serve, not turn our backs on them. Banning transgender people is hurtful, baseless and wrong
    — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) July 26, 2017

    Your legacy continues to be one of ignorance and intolerance. Your cruelty will only ignite our fire. We won't stop this fight.

    I just want to tell the transgender community that I love you and you ARE supported no matter what. #ProtectTransTroops

    Are you TRYING to be an asshole? https://t.co/QW9axAScmO

    I don't know what to say about this embarrassment of a president but I stand with the Trans community. I'm sorry.

    In decreeing transgender people unfit to serve, Donald Trump continues to visit previously unxplored regions of the suck.

    To the transgender men and women. Please know that I am standing with you. 🙏🏾

    Trans people embody courage & bravery. They stand in their truth & fight every day. Soldiers deserve respect for their service, not this.

    Trump is banning all transgenders from the military. To those who believed Trump would be a friend to LGBTs, time to admit you were conned.

    Donald: With your ban on trans people from the military, you are on notice that you just pissed off the wrong community. You will regret it.

    History shall record that you are not only the stupidest, most incompetent president ever, but also the cruelest and pettiest. #Shame pic.twitter.com/8R4jVOIYmd

    Hey trans teens: this man does not represent the overwhelming love, support and pride waiting for you when you step out into the world.
