Refresh for updates Hollywood expressed outrage today over Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily banning entry into the U.S. from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Some of the messages were specifically in support of Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, whose The Salesman is nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and who might not be able to attend the Feb. 26 Academy Awards.
Here’s a selection of the tweets. Deadline will update as more are posted.

To our Muslim neighbors in the world: I & tens of millions of others are so very sorry. The majority of Americans did not vote 4 this man.

To those blowing off this Muslim Ban as a pause in immigration, do you think this is more likely the end of such actions or the beginning?

Why do I feel like the "all lives matter" people are probably not out protesting the horrible Muslim ban?
