(NOTE LANGUAGE) Several stars, including Taraji P. Henson, Lizzo and Megan Thee Stallion, are blasting the Supreme Court for overturning Roe v. Wade and the fundamental right to abortion that has been the law for almost 50 years.
When Lizzo accepted the Fearlessness Award at the second Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards Friday night in Beverly Hills, she announced she had partnered with Live Nation to donate $1 million from her upcoming Special Tour to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Funds, according to People.
“It seems like we’re always [in a humanitarian] crisis, like a global pandemic or institutionalized racism or the bans lawmakers put on our bodies,” the three-time Grammy winner told the crowd. The “Truth Hurts” singer/rapper added, “I don’t just do this for myself, I do this for the world and to show the world what action really looks like.”
Sunday night, Lizzo opened up the BET Awards performing “About Damn Time,” and Henson, who hosted the event, praised her for her donation.
“Thank you, Lizzo, for pledging $1 million to Planned Parenthood,” the Golden Globe-winning actress said. “It’s about damn time that we talk about [how] guns have more power than women in America. It’s a sad day in America. A weapon that can take lives has more power than a woman who can give life, if she chooses to.”
Megan Thee Stallion slammed the Supreme Court as she performed Saturday at the Glastonbury Festival in England.
“It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take a second to call out these stupid a** men,” the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper said on stage. “I want to have it on the record that the motherf***ing hot girls and the hot boys do not support this bulls*** that y’all campaigning for.”
