Simon Helberg and Jocelyn Towne dressed to protest Donald Trump’s immigration ban at the 23rd annual SAG Awards.
Appearing on the red carpet Sunday evening in Los Angeles, the Big Bang Theory star carried a sign reading “refugees welcome,” while his wife and fellow actor bore the message “let them in” written across her chest.
Helberg and Towne’s statements represented a clear condemnation of the president’s sweeping executive order issued Friday to block all refugees from entering the country, as well as immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries. The order has ignited protests across the country, snarled travel across the globe, and created widespread outrage, including among politicians and celebrities.
Helberg, who was nominated with his Big Bang Theory cast mates for best comedy ensemble on Sunday, has been a frequent Trump critic on Twitter.
