Hollywood Stars Rip ‘Shameful’ Supreme Court Travel Ban Ruling: ‘This Is Devastating’

“That stolen SCOTUS seat, though,” Yvette Nicole Brown tweets, “That’s for LIFE”

Hollywood stars are enraged over the Supreme Court ruling Tuesday that upheld Donald Trump’s travel ban.

“Will and Grace” star Debra Messing called the ruling “devastating,” and urged her followers to vote in this year’s upcoming midterm elections. “Voting is our best defense,” she said.

Others were more concise with their feelings. “Silicon Valley” star Kumail Nanjiani said, “Muslim bans are now legal forever.”

Several celebrities also suggested that the ruling might not have gone in Trump’s favor had the seat, vacated by Antonin Scalia, gone to Barack Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland, and not to Trump’s nominee Neil Gorsuch.

“That stolen SCOTUS seat, though,” former “Community” star Yvette Nicole Brown tweeted. “That’s for LIFE.”

The ruling was made in a 5-4 decision, according to CNN. This is the third iteration of the ban, and restricts travelers from Iran, North Korea, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Venezuela from entering the United States to different degrees.

In a statement issued by the White House, Trump called the ruling “a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country,” The New York Times reported.

On Twitter, however, the president was much more blunt: “SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!”
