Once again, what was meant to be a “peaceful” show of solidarity on the behalf of women took on some violent undertones today.
Madonna, amongst other celebrities involved in the event, made some less-than-tasteful remarks in reference to Donald Trump.
“Yes, I have thought a lot about blowing up the White House.”
Ashley Judd made similarly controversial comments as well (via USA Today).
“I am a very nasty woman!” Ashley Judd proclaimed on the stage. “Like Susan, Eleanor, Amelia, Rosa, Gloria, Hillary and Michelle,” ticking off the names of feminist icons.
The actress and political activist made offensive statements regarding President Trump’s relationship with his daughter, Ivanka.
Scarlett Johansson was one of the few to take a more tasteful route:
“I didn’t vote for you but I respect the fact that you are the president. But before I support you, I ask you to support me.”
A slew of other celebrities attended the event, including Amy Schumer, Michael Moore, and Alicia Keys.
