Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lawrence seem to be taking turns at bullying presidential aspirant Donald Trump. Back in the days when the Republican presidential candidate was just starting out with his campaign, Cyrus said “I’m going to puke,” when quizzed regarding what Trump is up to. Today, on her Instagram account, reports Teen Vogue,Miley Cyrus snapped herself wearing a white T-shirt that says “Make America Gay Again,” an obvious parody of the famous Donald Trump campaign logo, “Make America Great Again.”

On her Instagram post, Miley is white-haired which is a throwback to the Daenerys Targaryen heroine of Game of Thrones. Cyrus also has her standard tongue-sticking-out gesture which has become her social media signature. The source also notes that the t-shirt worn by Miley Cyrus is actually a Human Rights Campaign (HRC) promo material launched in December 2015 to coincide with the official launch of the popular Donald Trump slogan.

A non-profit organization, HRC champions the equality cause and sells the shirt for $28 a piece. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence has her own tirade on The Donald on The Graham Norton Show. In the BBC One show, Lawrence recounts a time when she crossed paths with a Donald Trump campaign. Lawrence states that she attempted to find Trump in order to throw curse words at him complete with the finger gesture. Unfortunately, Trump bodyguards foiled the face off from happening.

Lawrence’s attack on Trump is eerily similar to her portrayal of a rebel in The Hunger Games movie series, where she campaigns on television to bring down President Snow, a character played by Donald Sutherland. However, Lawrence and Cyrus are not the only outspoken critics of Donald Trump’s campaign for the American presidency. There is a long list of celebrities that are opposed to Donald Trump running for the U.S. executive office as follows, according to amNEWYORK.

  1. Stephen Hawking
  2. Stephen King
  3. Susan Sarandon
  4. John Legend
  5. Jack Black
  6. Sarah Silverman
  7. Samuel L. Jackson
  8. Chelsea Handler
  9. John Oliver
  10. Cher
  11. Ben Stiller
  12. J.K. Rowling
  13. Brandon Stanton
  14. Eve Ensler

Miley Cyrus also said that she would move to Canada if Donald Trump were elected, a sentiment echoed by many of the celebrities opposed to the Trump presidency. As it gets closer to November 8, this Hollywood advocacy against Donald Trump can only be expected to escalate. Ellen DeGeneres has made it clear early on who her president is, in an episode of her extremely popular daily talk show. Oprah Winfrey has also endorsed Hillary Clinton recently.

Thus, Hollywood Inc. seems united in opposing the Trump candidacy. Never in the history of the U.S. presidential elections has there been such a stronger show of hands in thumbing down a candidate. This surely makes for more interesting and more galvanized elections. There definitely is a lot more talk going on in the 2016 election than in any other.

Still, who deserves to be in the White House in November remains a two-faced coin. There are also luminaries that have opened up in supporting Donald Trump, prior to the Miley Cyrus or the Jennifer Lawrence criticism. New York Daily News lists the following pro-Trump advocates.

  4. Paul O’Neill
  5. Jon Voight
  6. Aaron Carter
  7. Teresa Guidice
  8. Sarah Palin
  9. Tila Tequila
  10. Dennis Rodman
  11. Ted Nugent
  12. Mike Tyson
  13. Loretta Lynn
  14. Lou Ferrigno
  15. Willie Robertson
  16. Stephen Baldwin

These lists on opposite sides of the pole are reminiscent of the 1980s’ Battle of the Network Stars, where TV celebrities dueled in competitive sports. It is clear that the numbers are still lopsided in favor of the anti-Trump group (i.e., 25 against 16). Of course, these names are only those of visible advocates. There is likely more on both sides than meets the eye.

At the same time, the names Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey represent two big TV and cable networks with an influence that can never be underestimated. To illustrate, the Oprah Network generated a very big chunk of support for the Barack Obama presidential race. Hillary Clinton is a winner based on a celebrity show of hands with stars like Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lawrence fanning the flames of the anti-Trump sentiment.
