From Nicole Kidman’s call for “support” to Matthew McConaughey saying Americans need to “embrace” the new president
Donald Trump's presidency has largely been met with resistance from Hollywood stars, but a few have taken a different path. Objections to Trump's detractors range from apolitical calls for unity to outright criticism of those protesting in the streets.
Lagerfeld, a German fashion designer and artist, made it clear in an interview with WSJ Magazine in February that American politics is not his area of expertise, but he encouraged Trump critics to come around to the new president.
"I’m not American," he said, "but he’s a democratically elected president … so people have to deal with it.”
In a Facebook Live interview with the Daily Mail
in February, Lohan encouraged people to "join" Donald Trump.
“I think always in the public eye you’re gonna be scrutinized, and he is the president," she said. "We have to join him. If you can’t beat him, join him."
She added, "You know, I think it would be a positive thing for America to show their care and support, and for him to experience what it's like for these people... experience how giving Turkey has been to the refugees and how many they have welcomed in."
A few weeks before Donald Trump's inauguration, "Lion" star Nicole Kidman took some backlash for saying that Americans "need to support whoever the president is." The actress, who holds dual U.S. and Australian citizenship, later clarified that her comments were simply a call for unity and support of democracy.

"American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis accused Trump protesters of "overreaction" at the opening of his art exhibit in London, according to the Irish Examiner
. "I don't really know what the path to power is with protest, it's done, this is where we are," the author said, accusing protesters, social media and celebrities of "aiding" divisiveness.
