Hollywood Slams Donald Trump’s #MuslimBan as ‘Disgusting,’ ‘Disturbing’

Hollywood Slams Donald Trump’s #MuslimBan as ‘Disgusting,’ ‘Disturbing’, by Itay Hod.

Hollywood is fuming over Donald Trump’s executive order late Friday to ban citizens from seven mostly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days — and refugees for 120 days.

The Motion Picture Academy on Saturday issued a statement calling Trump’s action “extremely troubling” and noted that “Asghar Farhadi, the director of the Oscar-winning film from Iran ‘A Separation,’ along with the cast and crew of this year’s Oscar-nominated film ‘The Salesman,’ could be barred from entering the country because of their religion or country of origin.”

“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.” …

Actor Seth Rogen urged his more than 5 million Twitter followers to join a demonstration outside downtown L.A.’s federal immigration office, adding a link to the event’s Facebook page and tweeting the hashtag #MuslimBan. …

Oscar-nominated Iranian director Asghar Farhadi might not be allowed to enter the U.S. to attend next month’s Academy Awards, according to a representative of the National Iranian American Council.

Outrage is going off the charts. How predictable.
