Celebrities including Rihanna, John Legend and Kim Kardashian have expressed their opinions on President Donald Trump's recent Muslim ban.

The ban was put in place to indefinitely bar Syrian refugees from entering the US, as well as to temporarily ban people from seven Muslim-majority countries - Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. 

BBC News report that some visa categories, such as diplomats and the UN, are not included in the recent suspension.

As protests are taking place in many US airports this week in an act of disagreement with the ban, many famous figures have shared their own views on the act.

Rihanna took to Twitter shortly after the news broke:

Kim Kardashian shared this chart, simply captioned "Statistics":

Chris Brown tweeted a heart emoji alongside this photo:

The singer also shared this picture on Instagram, captioned 'I pray this is true':

Sia offered to match donations made to the American Civil Liberties Union:

John Legend gave a powerful speech at the Screen Actor's Guild Awards.

"Our vision of America is directly antithetical to that of President Trump," the musician said.

"I want to specifically tonight reject his vision and affirm that America has to be better than that."
