Just when we thought Hollywood couldn’t hate Donald Trump more…

As we previously reported, on Wednesday, POTUS officially revoked federal protections for transgender students which allowed them to use the restrooms and/or changing rooms that matched their identified gender. Obviously, not long after this decision made headlines, celebrity allies for the LGBTQ community flocked to Twitter in order to SLAM the Trumpster for this civil rights violation.

Specifically Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen Page, Brie Larson, and even Donald’s Inauguration Day performer Jackie Evancho, ALL spoke out against this controversial decision. Be sure to ch-ch-check out their reactions on the matter for yourself (below)!

Just seeing the news about removing laws protecting trans people. This isn’t about politics. It’s about human rights, and it’s not okay.

We need to protect trans youth and stand up against this cruelty that hurts our kids. Support @Translifeline

This is disgusting. This is unacceptable. I #StandWithGavin and every Trans person who deserve nothing less than protection and equality. https://t.co/IK5TO8nWQ8

I am obviously disappointed in the @POTUS decision to send the #transgender bathroom issue to the states to decide. #sisterlove

"@POTUS" you sure you’re the best person to legislate the appropriate place for people to pee?

THIS IS EVERYTHING WRONG WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION. @POTUS ACTS OUT OF FEAR AND HATRED OF EVERYTHING HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND. #RESIST https://t.co/SG9UgSH7R1

Trans kids: it gets better. I promise it will–because there are lots of allies out here who will be fighting on your behalf.

Transgender kids are among the most vulnerable of all children. Schools and all of us have a moral obligation to protect them. https://t.co/6vevuoCStT

Of course, there is one A-lister in particular who has remained tight lipped about this controversy. If you guessed, Caitlyn Jenner, you’re correct!

We’ll honestly be SHOCKED if the I Am Cait star stands by the president after this political move. What do YOU think??
