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.

1.8 billion Muslims.
The vast majority of victims of Radical Islamic Terrorism are Muslims.
An argument for a #MuslimBan is ignorant.

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.

This is a direct reflection of the ignorance and fear of the unknown that permeates American society. #MuslimBan

As someone who was born in Pakistan I can tell you coming into America is VERY difficult. A #Muslimban accomplishes nothing but hate.

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?

We've lost something very precious.
And traded it for a cowardly, foolish illusion of safety.

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