Although the Wonder Woman star and director couldn’t join the demonstrations, they showed their support for the cause with a powerful social media message. “Trying to make our film today, but Gal and I growing increasingly distracted by the fact that there is somehow not an aggressive and swift effort to reunite these kids with their parents. What kind of people are standing in the way of such a thing? #Childrenbelongwiththeirparents,” Jenkins wrote, referring to the production of their Wonder Woman sequel.
