The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Jan. 30
Nothing like coming back to work after a nice, calm weekend, right? I kid — these past few weeks have been totally insane, due to the rollout of Donald Trump's immigration ban, which temporarily prohibits refugees and citizens of seven countries from entering the U.S. As we all saw, the ban caused immediate backlash, with countless people coming together to voice their dissent and protest around the globe, acts that are bound to continue throughout this week.
And believe it or not, the ban isn't the only huge thing that happened this weekend and on Monday. Read on for a recap of all the big news and events that got Bustle's editors talking these past few days.
Trump's Muslim Ban + Protests
By now, we've all heard and processed the upsetting news about Trump's ban and what it means for immigrants and refugees. So let's focus on the positive: the incredible protests happening around the globe over the ban, the organizations like the ACLU that have gotten massive donations, and the companies standing up against the discriminatory ban. America is fighting back.
How To Help: Feel like you're not doing enough to make your voice heard? Here's how to find a refugee ban protest near you, or how to call your Senators to make your opposition to the ban heard loud and clear.
The SAG Awards + What They Mean
Another Sunday night, another awards show. Last night, the SAG Awards honored the best in both film and TV, with the casts of Stranger Things (including an amazingly expressive Winona Ryder) and Orange is the New Black taking home the biggest television prizes. As for film, here's what Hidden Figures' surprise win might mean for the Oscars.
Ocean's 8 Sneak Peek: Sorry, other movies, but the best film of 2018 is clearly going to be Ocean's 8, at least judging by the amazing first photo released of the all-female cast. There's Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, and more — hell, yes.
Quebec + How To Help
In heartbreaking news, a shooting at a Quebec City mosque late Sunday night left five dead, with several others injured. Although the shooters' motives aren't known, Islamaphobia is unfortunately rampant across the globe, and this particular mosque has been targeted in the past. Here's how to help the Quebec mosque shooting victims after this awful tragedy.
Satire 101: Need a smile after so much terrible news? Over the weekend, Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer retweeted an Onion article making fun of him, apparently not understanding what the Onion — or satire — is. LOL.
Selena Gomez + The Weeknd
After photos of the two of them together got fans' eyebrows raised, it looks like things are now official between Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. Both stars posted photos or videos of each other on their Instagrams (Gomez's post was deleted a few hours later), and they seem to be spending a lot of time together recently. What's their ship name gonna be: Gomnd? Weekena? So many options.
Miss Universe + All Those Dresses
