Model Brooklyn Decker shared her anger at the decision in a reflective post about the freedoms that the U.S. offers.

"Grateful for the abundance this country has to offer. Grateful that I live in a place I can criticize, and point out how disturbing and disgusting it is that Americans have fewer rights than they did last year," she wrote.

"Grateful that I can call out how this country doesn't work for everyone or keep everyone safe without getting jailed for saying those words. Today I carry both an abundance of gratitude and a swelling of anger. I know I share that with so many of you. May we sustain our fury to propel this complicated country forward and not further backward."
