Dave Chappelle Joins Protest Against Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban

On Sunday afternoon, Dave Chappelle spoke briefly at a rally in front of the federal court building in Dayton, Ohio.

The 43-year-old comedian, who converted to Islam in the late 1990s, addressed the crowd through a microphone, saying: “We are all here because what you [Trump] are doing does not seem right. As a matter of fact, it sucks. I support refugees, I support immigrants, and I love my friends and neighbors. Thank you.”

Chappelle is one of many celebrities to decry the president’s temporary travel ban. Everyone from Rihanna and John Legend to Kerry Washington and Russell Simmons have publicly condemned the executive order.

On Saturday night, a federal judge in Brooklyn granted a nationwide emergency stay that stopped the deportation of immigrants detained at U.S. airports as a result of Trump’s travel ban.
