Celebrities call out President Trump for 'sh-thole' comments towards Haiti & African countries

President Donald Trump's comments during a White House meeting about protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries drew irate responses from celebrities today (Jan. 12).

"Why are we having all these people from shit-hole countries come here?" said the POTUS according to a report from The Washington Post during the Oval office meeting. 

CNN's Anderson Cooper responded with an angry message towards the president. “Let me be clear, the people of Haiti have been through more, withstood more, fought back against more injustice than our President ever has.” 

Here are more disapproving messages from John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Chrissy Teigen, and more.
