"I support refugees, I support immigrants, and I love my friends and neighbors."
Donald Trump's immigration ban, which affects 7 majority-Muslim countries, has inspired protests across the United States over the last 48 hours. A protest in Dayton, Ohio today featured a special guest speaker in Dave Chapelle, the celebrated comedian who converted to Islam in 1998.
Chapelle made a short speech, which much like his unforgettable SNL monologue, was as funny as it was powerful. "Donald Trump, wherever you are, I am begging you. Stop ruining my Sunday. It is freezing out here," he joked, before taking a more serious turn. "We are all here because what you 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 who have voiced disapproval for Trump's ban, including Rihanna, who wrote on Twitter, "Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!!"
