Celebrities trotted out to social media Thursday to criticize President Trump’s reported use of the word “sh*thole” to describe several countries during an immigration meeting.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Trump had used the swear word while discussing countries including Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries during an Oval Office meeting to discuss a potential bipartisan immigration deal.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” the Post quoted the president as saying. (Related: Haiti Formally Summons US Official to Come and Explain “Sh*thole” (Video))

Trump denied the statement in a post to his Twitter account Friday, saying the remark had been “made up” by Democrats to discredit him.

Nevertheless, Hollywood stars and media personalities were quick to accuse the president of racism, including singer John Legend, who accused Trump of being a racist for his “entire public life.” (See: Trump sets record straight on crude remark, stands by ‘tough’ language on DACA proposal)
