Celebrities Furious That Trump Removed Obama Transgender Bathroom Guidelines
Celebrities like Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres and Lance Bass expressed their frustration via Twitter after President Donald Trump removed Barack Obama’s transgender bathroom guidelines.
On Wednesday, Trump’s administration revoked Obama’s order that forced taxpayer-funded schools to allow transgender students to use whichever locker room and bathroom they want. (RELATED: Celebrities Have Meltdown Over ‘Nightmare’ Confirmation Of AG Jeff Sessions)
“Just seeing the news about removing laws protecting trans people. This isn’t about politics. It’s about human rights, and it’s not okay,” DeGeneres tweeted.
