Washington D.C. [USA], Feb. 23 (ANI): As U.S. President Donald Trump's government revoked landmark guidance issued to public schools, in defense of transgender student rights, numerous celebs took to social media to speak out about their opposition. In the wake of the announcement, which would permanently scrap transgender student protections in schools, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted, "This isn't about politics. It's about human rights, and it's not okay."

Brie Larson called the Trump administration's decision 'disgusting' and 'unacceptable,' asserting that transgender people deserve "nothing less than protection and equality." Fellow actress Ellen Page tweeted, "We need to protect trans youth and stand up against this cruelty that hurts our kids." She also urged people to support the suicide prevention hotline Trans Lifeline. Lance Bass didn't mince words writing, "What an a------!" 'Lost' alumnus Dominic Monaghan termed the decision as 'heartless' as he wrote, "As if school life isn't hard enough at times for #transgender students @realDonaldTrump takes away rights for separate bathrooms. Heartless." (ANI)
