Ever since this weekend, when the Trump administration announced a ban on refugees as well as those coming to the United States from certain Muslim-majority countries, many celebrities have spoken out against the move, and many have seen pushback from Trump supporters.
But this exchange between Kirk Franklin and an Internet troll has all of Twitter applauding.
“I am a Christian who would rather sit at the table with a Muslim brother than ban him from a home that wasn’t originally mine…” Franklin wrote on Twitter concerning the Muslim ban.
That’s when another Twitter user tried to get Franklin with this tweet: “I trust u’ll be leaving ur doors unlocked tonight. Oh & ur brothers want to know if u have a daughter.”
But Franklin just wasn’t having it.
“Yes I have a daughter and the ability to protect her. Please come so I can have a reason to introduce you to it in Jesus name,” he tweeted back.
Naturally, Twitter had a field day with that response. Check out some of the best Twitter reactions below.
