Celebs Condemn White Nationalist March in Virginia, Slam Trump for Staying Silent

Celebs are speaking out to condemn the violent marches happening in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white nationalists have been clashing with counter-protestors.

People are also slamming President Trump for not speaking out against the actions of those participating in the Alt-Right rally, which has been deemed unlawful.

Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia has “declared a state of emergency to aid state response to violence at Alt-Right rally in Charlottesville,” his team announced on Twitter.

White supremacists held torches while chanting things like “you will not replace us” and “blood and soil” throughout the night on Friday (August 11).

Emmy Rossum, Chelsea Clinton, and The Big Sick‘s Kumail Nanjiani are among the stars calling for Trump to speak out about the violence.

    Didn’t he take too long to condemn David Duke’s endorsement/comments during the campaign? This sounds like the same situation.

  • Curt Noydb

    Still waiting for Obama and Hillary to condemn all the rioting ad violence from BLM and after the Election.

  • Cooper

    It is. But as someone who lives in VA and sister who went to UVA what they are renaming the park to “emancipation Park” is equally as bad. Emancipation freed the slaves but it was also a middle of the road agreement for the democrats that kept slaves from being full fledged citizens (i.e. Right to vote). Could they have at least called it freedom park if they wanted to erase the traces of Robert e lee.

  • Eric A

    No one complained about the Million Man March back in 1995.

  • Cooper

    Well no one learns actually history. Otherwise they would know Lee was a complicated figure in a complicated time and the issue isnt nearly as cut and dry as they want it to be. Lee did NOT agree to VA succession from the Union or the war. He also freed his own slaves, thought that they should have certain rights such as public access to education. His wife and mother in law also helped fund the return of freed slaves to What is now Liberia in the belief they would have better opportunities there. While he still supported the south I think people like to simplify this to just being about slavery. It was about state rights which we still deal with today.

    Chelsea Clinton should keep her ugly mouth shut…after all, her father was getting blow jobs under his desk when he was supposed to be running this country!!!

  • Courtney Puzzo

    these people need to shut their mouths it’s part of having free speech people are going to say things you disagree with

  • Sara

    Million Man March wasn’t about black superiority and their was no violence.

  • Michele V

    And in turn, don’t they have the right to condemn the actions of these people if you believe in free speech so much?

  • Rhonda Schuck

    Actually it was the white group that had the permit to march and black lives matter showed up. Rip to those who lost their lives. Free Speech is a two way street. You and I don’t have to agree, they could have made their speech did their little march and it would have been over. The left showed up to fight and so they have to take equal responsibility
