President Donald Trump’s announcement via Twitter Wednesday morning that the U.S. government “will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military” has sparked outrage online. Some of the most followed vocal dissenters on the Internet were celebrities who took to their social media accounts to sound off on Trump’s ban on trans Americans serving in the army; while some, like Janet Mock, pointed out the sacrifices that transgender service members have made for the country, others like Seth Rogen called on the Trump family to remember the promises that they had made to the LGBTQ community in the past.
