Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are critical of President Donald Trump.
The couple donated $288,000 to the ACLU Thursday for Trump’s 72nd birthday.
They chose the ACLU because of they work they are doing to protect immigrant families from the “inhumane policies of the Trump Administration.”

Chrissy Teigen is taking advantage of the fact that President Donald Trump can’t block her on Twitter anymore.

The 32-year-old announced on Twitter that she, husband John Legend, and their two children were donating money to the ACLU for Trump’s 72nd birthday on Thursday.

“The President celebrates his 72nd birthday today,” she wrote. “On this auspicious occasion, in order to Make Trump’s Birthday Great Again, each member of our family has donated $72,000 to the ACLU.”

The note is signed by Teigen, Legend, Luna, and Miles, meaning the donations add up to $288,000.

They chose to donate to the ACLU and mentioned stories about immigrants being separated from their families.

“John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration,” she wrote. “The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families.”

She urged everyone to donate whatever they can at www.aclu.org/72.

Trump blocked Teigen on Twitter back in July 2017, but in May 2018, Federal Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled that Trump does not have the right to block anyone on social media because it would violate the First Amendment since his account is considered an “official government account.”

“Happy birthday, @realdonaldtrump,” she wrote before the note.
