President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban citizens and refugees from Muslim countries entering the United States has had a ripple effect. Many people are speaking of their outrage to the order on social media, musicians included.
Over the weekend when thousands protested at airports throughout the nation, artists including Rihanna, John Legend, Questlove and Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, among others, shared their distaste for Trump on social media.
Meanwhile, Sia and Grimes said that they will be donating money to the ACLU to assist immigrants being subjected to the order and suggested others do the same, offering to match contributions.
