As expected, the White House announced that Donald Trump has rolled back regulations put in place by former President Barack Obama regarding Transgender students. In response, some of the biggest stars in Hollywood have decided to speak out.

Hollywood sounds off

Put in place during his second term, Obama put into law a requirement that all public schools must allow transgender students to use the bathroom that correlates with the gender they identify with, and not necessarily the gender they were born with. Transgender rights have become one of the hottest social issues in current politics, which has only added to the divide among the American people.

While Democrats have pushed to support transgender equality, Republicans have pushed back, saying it often violates their religious freedom. The Donald Trump administration, on the other hand, claim that the president will be the leader for all Americans, but that the issue in question should be left up to the states. As seen across Twitter on February 22, big name Celebrities are voicing their opposition.

"Just seeing the news about removing laws protecting trans people.

This isn’t about politics," talk show host Ellen DeGeneres wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night, before adding, "It’s about human rights, and it’s not okay." Actress Ellen Page decided to chime in, tweeting, "We need to protect trans youth and stand up against this cruelty that hurts our kids. Support @Translifeline."

Comedian Kathy Griffin also took to Twitter to give her thoughts, while targeting top members of the president's cabinet in the process.

"Oh yeah! Because #trans students are the REAL threat. Jesus," Griffin tweeted. Concluding her message, Griffin used several hashtags, including "#LGBT," "#LGBTQ," and ""#wtf" while tagging Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Former member of the band N'Sync, Lance Bass, also went off on his own social media account.

"What an a**hole!" Bass tweeted, before linking to an article on the issue in question.

Backlash continues

Owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuba, continued his public feud with the former host of "The Apprentice," and hit back at Donald Trump over his decision on transgender protections. "Be unapologetically you. Love who you are. Fight for equality. Fight for what is right," Cuban tweeted. As the night moved on, more stars gave their thoughts, as the backlash to Trump continued.
