Simon Helberg and Jocelyn Towne Support Refugees at 2017 SAG Awards

by at .

A number of actors and actresses who accepted trophies tonight at the 2017 SAG Awards made a mention of Donald Trump's latest executive order.

You know the one; the one being referred to as a Muslim Ban across social media and, really, most of the free world.

But while Simon Helberg didn't personally take home any gold at the event in Los Angeles, he still made his opinion on Trump's order as clear as possible.

And he did so without saying a word:

Check out the sign held on the red carpet above by Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne.

It has created quite the stir across Twitter, Instagram and the Internet at large.

Meanwhile, Towne was seen with the words “LET THEM IN” written above her chest.

The President has faced major backlash after issuing the controversial order.

The ban has led to protests across the country, specifically in airports in which refugees were being detained, some of which were in possession of a legal green card.

Here is what other stars have said about the Muslim Ban:

And here is what Julia Louis-Dreyfus said upon winning Outstanding Female Actress in a Comedy Series:

“Whether the Russians did or did not hack the voting of tonight’s SAG awards, I look out at the million or probably even a million and a half people in this room, and I say this award is legitimate and I won.

I’m the winner, the winner is me — landslide!

She then turned serious:

I want you all to know, I am the daughter of an immigrant.

My father fled Religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France. I’m an American patriot and I love this country, and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes.

This immigrant ban is a blemish and it is un-American.

What do you think of celebrities denouncing the Muslim Ban? And Trump in general?

Are they helping their cause? Hurting their cause?

Would you prefer to watch an awards show that is apolitical? Or do you understand why these stars feel a need to speak out?

And how excited are you to see Trump's response tomorrow on Twitter?
