Stars like Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Evans and Brie Larson have joined the outcry against Donald Trump’s decision to rescind Obama Administration-era protections for transgender public school students.

“This isn’t about politics. It’s about human rights, and it’s not okay,” DeGeneres tweeted.

“To the LGBTQ community, I’m sorry for the message that was sent today. They don’t speak for all of us. We love you,” Evans wrote on Twitter.

It was reported Wednesday by the New York Times that Trump intends to reverse the Obama Administration’s guidance that public schools nationwide should allow transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

Jackie Evancho, who performed at Trump’s inauguration, tweeted Wednesday that “I am obviously disappointed in the @POTUS decision to send the bathroom issue to the states to decide..”

Evancho has an older transgender sister, 18-year-old Juliet, who is currently suing her Pittsburgh school district for refusing to allow trans students to use identity-corresponding bathrooms.
