Donald Trump was an extremely controversial president, both during his campaign and during his presidency. Therefore it comes as no surprise that there are many celebrities who hate Trump.
As Trump once again attempts to become re-elected, tensions within the country have risen once again, bringing new and old quotes about the president to the surface—some from very famous celebrities who hate Donald Trump.
Read on to discover 50 celebrities who hate Donald Trump and what they’ve said about the former president.
1. Muhammad Ali
The famed boxer Muhammad Ali has been incredibly outspoken in regard to his hate of the former US president. He specifically hates how Trump uses social issues, like Islam, for his own agenda, as he mentioned in an interview: “We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda.”
2. Pharrell Williams
The “Happy” singer is anything but happy when it comes to Trump. He has even threatened legal action against the former president due to him using his song at rallies Pharrell felt were inappropriate; namely the rally held by Trump following the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting.

3. Phil Collins

4. Neil Young
Trump has often used Neil Young’s song “Rockin’ in the Free World” at rallies, which had angered the famous rocker. While he hasn’t sought legal action like other celebrities who hate Trump, he has written a letter to Trump asking him to stop and consider his actions before playing his music at rallies.
5. Robert Downey Jr.
Few have been quite as open about their Trump hate as Robert Downey Jr., who once called the former president an “orange Muppet Hitler.” Clearly, the actor feels Trump is oppressing his personal freedoms in his quest to make America great again.
In January 2017, on his Boy Meets World Tour in London, Drake took the opportunity to share his opinion of Trump, stating, “If you think one man can tear this world apart, you’re out of your motherf–king mind. It’s on us to keep this s— together. F–- that man.” Thus putting Drake on the list of celebrities who hate Donald Trump. It’s a bit odd, however, that he only made his hate obvious in a country that had no say in the Trump reelection campaign,

7. Stephen Curry
The list of celebrities who hate Donald Trump isn’t limited to just actors and singers, rather professional sports players also make their hate known. Curry was asked if he agreed Trump was an asset for the United States. Curry replied: “I agree with that description if you remove the ‘et’ from ‘asset.’”
We aren’t surprised that Shakira isn’t a Trump supporter, after all, she is of South/Latin American descent. It’s clear Trump hasn’t been too nice to those trying to cross the border into the US seeking a better life.

9. Stephen Hawking
Stephen Hawking, widely thought to be one of the most brilliant minds of all time, also can’t stand Trump. “He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator,” Stephen Hawking said in May 2016 while Trump was campaigning for president.
In other countries, Trump-directed hate is common, which explains why Adele, a British singer, would be one of the celebrities who hate Donald Trump. She can’t vote in any elections, but she has been very vocal about her opposition to Trump using her songs for his political rallies in 2016.

An outspoken Democrat, Rihanna has been direct on her social media and in person that she does not support Trump nor his reelection campaign. She even got her legal team involved when Trump played “Don’t Stop the Music” at Trump rallies in 2018.

12. Elton John
As a gay man, Elton John is firmly against Trump’s traditional religious (and notably anti-gay beliefs). When Trump used “Rocket Man” and “Tiny Dancer” at his rallies, however, Elton John took a step back, unlike other celebrities on this list, stating that as a Brit, it wasn’t his place to get involved in American politics.

13. Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks, an actress known for playing Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games franchise, has a lot to say about President Trump. “Some of you know me from ‘The Hunger Games,’ in which I play a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia. So when I tuned in to [the Republican National Convention in] Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Uh, hey ― that’s my act!’” While her position is more humorous than other celebrities who hate Trump, it’s clear he won’t find any support from Banks.
14. Jimmy Kimmel
Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has a large platform of viewers for his nightly show and has made his position on Trump abundantly clear. “He likes to have his name on things: buildings, vodka, you name it. At this point, he would sign anything if it meant getting rid of Obamacare. He doesn’t know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid; he barely knows the difference between Melania and Ivanka.” —Jimmy Kimmel Live, September 2017.
15. Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep’s opinion of Trump is summed up in this quote from 2017: “There was one performance this year that stunned me…It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back…I still can’t get it out of my head…This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing…When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” —Accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes, January 2017
Another staunch Democrat, it’s not a shock to discover Cher is among the list of celebrities who hate Donald Trump. She even summed it up in a quote prior to the election: “He’s so Patty McCormack: consummate liar, doesn’t care who she hurts, insane…I just think he’s a f—ing idiot.” She also tweeted, “If he [Trump] were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter.” Unfortunately for the Goddess of Pop, he did get elected, and she was obviously unable to move to Jupiter.

17. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp spent the last few years in the spotlight as he navigated his complicated court case. Despite all that stress, he still took a moment to make his dislike of Trump known. In an interview, Depp told the press he thought Trump was a brat and a bully.
18. Mac Miller
On Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show,” Mac Miller called Trump an “egomaniacal, attention-thirsty, psychopathic, power-hungry, delusional waste of skin and bones.” Mac Miller even released a hate song dedicated to Trump, titled “F— Donald Trump.”

19. Jerry Seinfeld
“Trump’s happy face — that’s the scariest face of all time,” Seinfeld said in one interview, making his position as one of many celebrities who hate Donald Trump glaringly obvious.
20. Matt Damon
Matt Damon is also against Trump, which he made obvious before the election in 2016. “There’s no way we can let this guy be the [president]…He’s impulsive and rash and doesn’t seem to think deeply about too many things.” Unfortunately for Damon, Trump did become president thanks to the electoral college.
21. Marilyn Manson
In a teaser video for his song, “Say10,” released after the 2016 presidental election, a Trump-like figure wearing a suit and a red tie lies decapitated on a concrete floor in a pool of his own blood. We are pretty sure this is Marilyn essentially saying, “I hate Trump.”
22. Snoop Dogg
As an openly heavy user of cannabis, many probably already assumed Snoop wasn’t interested in Trump becoming president due to Trump’s views on Marijuana. In March 2017, Snoop Dogg made a music video for his track “Lavender,” which depicts Trump as a clown.
Later in the video, Snoop Dogg points a fake gun at the clown and pulls the trigger. A red flag pops out of the gun barrel that reads, “Bang!”. So if there was any doubt about Snoop Doggs political opinion before, this video clears it up.
23. Will Smith
No matter how you feel about Trump, some of the things he has said are simply off the rails, which is what Will Smith highlighted in this quote about the former president: “For a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig…and for people to applaud, that is absolutely f—ing insanity to me… If one of my sons said that in a public place, they couldn’t even live in my house anymore… I just cannot figure out how people can clap for that.”
24. Seth MacFarlane
Known for his controversial show Family Guy, it’s a little weird that Seth MacFarlane is one of the celebrities who hates Trump.
But it’s true, as he made it clear in this tweet: “I truly cannot visualize the rambling, incoherent creature I saw at the debates now addressing the nation from the Oval Office.” — Seth MacFarlane tweeted on election night.
25. Alec Baldwin
A prolific actor with several high-grossing titles beneath his belt, Baldwin has made his position on Trump clear in one interview: “Everywhere he’s gone, he’s abused power and people who are less powerful than him.” —Katie Couric, January 2017
26. George Clooney
Once the world’s biggest heartthrob, Clooney is one of the many celebrities who hate Donald Trump. He made it clear in the following quote “He’s just an opportunist. Now he’s a fascist; a xenophobic fascist.” — George Clooney in an interview with British newspaper The Guardian.
27. Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke called Trump a “big-mouthed b—- bully.” He also said he would “love 30 seconds in a room with the “little b—-.” We aren’t sure if Rourke plans to use his boxing skills or maybe killer acting skills to harm the former President, but either way, the intention is clear.
28. John Legend
The famous singer John Legend has been very open about his distaste for Trump. In one interview, he said: “He lies with a kind of cavalier frequency. He’s spread bigotry and hatred and division on a regular basis.” Then later, he continued with: “I think Trump is an embarrassment to the country…He calls people liars because he is a liar. He talks about people being corrupt because he is corrupt. So, he’s usually projecting when he criticizes someone.” —The Guardian, September 2017
29. Bruce Springsteen
In an interview with The Atlantic, Springsteen states, “I believe that our current president is a threat to our democracy,” he says of Trump. “He simply makes any kind of reform that much harder. I don’t know if our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship. These are all existential threats to our democracy and our American way of life.”
This says a lot coming from an artist who has been openly patriotic for decades. It could also explain why Springsteen had more out-of-country tour dates during the late 2010s.
30. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga makes her distaste of Trump known on Twitter, especially his policies on transgender teens: “The message you have just sent has endangered the lives of people all over the United States and overseas bravely serving our nation. Many of these young people are transgender & suffer daily from the exact types of social isolation & targeting ur message encourages. Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them, ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?” —A series of tweets directed at President Trump after Trump announced a transgender military ban, July 2017

31. J.K. Rowling
“Voldemort was nowhere near as bad.” — JK Rowling said about Trump in a tweet. Like many other celebrities who hate Trump, Rowling is British, so her opinion doesn’t matter too much in the end, but to compare Trump to Voldemort is HUGE.
32. Louis C.K.
Comedian Louis C.K had a lot to say about Trump in one of his stand-up routines: “Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that, I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the s— coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.” — Louis C.K.
Clearly, we know who he voted for in 2016.
33. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith
Trump angered a lot of musicians by using their music at his rallies. Aerosmith is one of those bands. The band sent a cease and desist letter when they heard Trump was playing their song “Dream On.”
Trump didn’t receive the letter, however, as Steven Tyler had to send a second cease and desist letter in 2018 because Trump used the song “Living on the Edge” again at another rally.

34. Robert De Niro
Actor Robert De Niro has a few choice words to say about Trump: “He’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con — a bull— artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot.” — Robert De Niro said in a video, “If he was smart, he’d be even more dangerous. He’s dangerous as it is. He’s terrible, and a flat-out blatant racist and doubling down on that” —Deadline, August 2017.
35. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is another strong Democrat, so it’s no surprise she’s one of the celebrities who hate Donald Trump. She hasn’t said as much as other stars on this list, but she did say: “Donald Trump is a f—ing nightmare” on Instagram.
“Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.’ It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.” Madonna said in an interview with BAZAAR shortly after the election. At least she didn’t threaten to move to Jupiter with Cher.

37. Kim Kardashian
“Anyone can run the U.S. better. My daughter would be better. We’ve worked so hard to get to where we were and to have so many things that we were so proud of in our country, just literally to revert backward is the most frustrating thing.” Kim Kardashian said in Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia in August 2017. While we don’t think living off her father’s money and starring in a hit TV show qualifies as “working hard,” at least Kim isn’t hiding her opinions from the public.
38. Stephen King
“Trump’s no friend of the working man. If you’re working for wages, brothers, and sisters, he couldn’t give one s— about you… Check his tax plan. Same old same old. The fat man’s busy dancing while the poor man pays the band.” Stephen King said on Twitter in September 2017. What he said is a bit ironic, considering Stephen is one of the richest authors of all time.
39. LeBron James
Basketball star Lebron James has also made our list of celebrities who hate Donald Trump based on a quote he stated in a video message: “This guy that we put in charge has tried to divide us once again… He’s now using sports as the platform to try to divide us. —In a video message after Trump’s comments about the NFL, September 2017
40. Brian May
Brian May of Queen was furious when Trump used Queen’s “We Are the Champions” when he strutted onstage, entering the Republican National Convention in 2016. May publically stated Trump did not have permission to play their song during the event. He then said the band would take further action if their music was used without authorization a second time.
41. Ben Stiller
Actor Ben Stiller has been less than impressed by the former president, specifically his social media usage. He once posted: “Worst message I have ever heard a president put out to the world.” on Twitter after Trump’s press conference about Charlottesville in August 2017. The good news for Ben Stiller is that Trump is still banned from Twitter, at least.
42. Samuel L. Jackson
“Remember what happened the last time people stayed home—we got stuck with Trump. We have to channel the great vengeance and fury we have for this administration into votes at the ballot box.” —A Get Out the Vote radio ad, April 2017.
Clearly, Trump will not have Samuel L. Jackson’s support for his reelection campaign.
43. Jennifer Lawrence
On The Graham Norton Show Jennifer Lawrence said that if she met Donald Trump, she would only have two words for the man: “F— you.”
44. Richard Gere
Famous for his acting roles through the decades, Richard Gene had a few choice words to say about Trump: “Here’s a guy who’s obviously Mussolini, how is it possible that people would be supporting this guy? You can try to find reasons. It’s about how disillusioned they are, how afraid, how confused…The most horrible thing that Trump has done is conflate two words—refugee and terrorist. That’s what he’s done. Instead of refugees being someone we want to help, now we’re afraid of them, and the biggest crime is conflating these two ideas.” —A press conference, February 2017
45. Kristen Bell
After being accused of posting an anti-Semitic tweet, Trump then tweeted a photo of a Frozen sticker book that has a star-shaped graphic on the cover, asking if the book is also offensive.
Kristen Bell responded by saying, “Zip it Don & get ur head outta ur a–. We’ve more important things 2 think abt today.”
46. Jack Black
Actor and musician Jack Black said Trump acts “like a child” and prefers “anyone but that dude” to run our country. That’s a lot coming from an actor who usually plays immature comedic roles.
47. Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen has a wild story about Trump that he shared on, The Graham Norton Show. “I was at a dinner with my ex-wife Brooke [Mueller] and her family, and about halfway through I noticed Donald staring at my watch. He says, ‘I want to give you an early wedding gift as a gesture from me and Melania’. He says, ‘These are platinum diamond Harry Winston,’ and he pulls off his cufflinks, and he gives them to me… Six months later, I had some jewelry getting appraised at the house. She took the loop, spent about four seconds, and kind of recoiled from it and says, ‘In their finest moment, this is cheap pewter and bad zirconias.’ And they’re stamped ‘Trump,’ and I just thought, ‘What does this really say about the man, that he said, ‘Here’s a great wedding gift,’ and it’s just a bag of dog sh–?'”
48. Demi Lovato
Singer Demi Lovato is a strong Democrat and believes heavily in helping the underdog. As such, she is one of the many celebrities who hate Donald Trump, and she said the following: “Regardless of what political party you are for, you can’t deny that what is going on is WRONG. And if you are an American not using your voice to stand up for what is right, you are wrong too. I’d rather lose fans and stand up for what I believe in rather than be a bystander…Also, you cannot classify a nazi as a ‘very fine person.’” —Several tweets Lovato posted in reply to Donald Trump’s Charlottesville press conference in August 2017.

49. Sarah Silverman
In a 2017 Tweet, Actor and comedian Sarah Silverman once declared, “Mr. President, you are defective. You have no empathy gene. You’re a selfish child who cannot see beyond your own self.”
50. Chris Evans
Whether you support or hate Trump, we think actor Chris Evans said it best: “We’ve let a hate monger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.” Chris Evans said in a tweet.
While Chris has said many other negative things about Trump, this quote is constructive, rather than being just negative, as Chris hopes for a more positive future for America beyond the Trump presidency.
