Hollywood stars, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Michelle Rodriguez, went ballistic over the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, which commits nearly every country on the planet to take action against climate change.

Though there were reports saying the president would pull out of the deal — fulfilling a promise he made on the campaign trail — the final decision still sent shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry. By withdrawing, the United States will join Nicaragua and Syria as countries not participating in the agreement, which aims to limit global warming by less than 2 degrees Celsius.

Oscar-winning documentarian Michael Moore shared, perhaps, the strongest message against Trump’s Thursday decision, calling it a “crime against humanity.” Others, including “Beauty and the Beast” star Josh Gad simply said this is “the year science, reason and accountability died.”

Actors and industry icons from Oscar winner Patricia Arquette to “Fast & Furious” star Michelle Rodriguez shared their disapproval of the country’s pullout from the global climate deal. Read them here:

Celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry urged Trump against leaving the agreement on Thursday even before the official announcement was made.
