A-Trak, Ed Droste and other artists slam the executive order.

Questlove and Rihanna were among the musicians voicing their disgust at President Trump’s travel ban on Muslims overnight, as protests sprang up at airports across the US.

“History Has Its Eyes On You,” wrote Questlove on Instagram. “Know what is right. Know what is wrong.”

Rihanna called the news “devastating”, adding: “America is being ruined right before our eyes!”

Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste said Trump’s executive order was “truly a dark chapter in our history” and called on fans to stand with refugees.

History Has Its Eyes On You. Know what is right. Know what is wrong.
