However, following the white supremacist rallies at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, hundreds of celebrities have taken to social media - and even to the streets - in protest against President Donald Trump's recent comments.

Last night, Trump shockingly called out both the Charlottesville protesters and counter-demonstrators as having 'blame on both sides', saying there were some 'very fine people' among the KKK members and neo-Nazis present at the protest, resulting in widespread criticism for his response.

As a result, Hollywood stars including the likes of Michael Moore, Mark Ruffalo, and Olivia Wilde led protesters to Trump Tower in New York to voice their dismay at the president's comments.

On Facebook, Moore urged people to join him at Trump Tower - where the president is currently staying for the first time since his inauguration - after Tuesday night's performance of his one-man show The Terms of My Surrender to 'nonviolently express our rage'.

In a video posted to Instagram by Mark Ruffalo, he joins Moore to chant 'hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go'.
