This is Laura Jane Great!

Against Me! is one of the most popular bands in punk rock, and they just so happen to have a transgender woman as their lead singer.

But not everyone was down with Trump's appearance, as both The Weeknd and rapper Belly canceled their spots on the late night show because the businessman was there. Belly released a statement saying:

"I feel like the way I was raised was to be able to see through all the titles in this world — from religion to race. I just didn't want to feel like I was a part of a celebration for somebody who has beliefs that majority of us don't agree with."

The rapper, who is muslim, also talked about how he is on "a campaign of positivity and love," and that Trump's statements about his religion go against his beliefs.
