A group of Hollywood heavyweights — including Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg, and Maggie Gyllenhaal — are saying sexual assault is “not okay,” in a new ad targeting GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The video, released Tuesday by the pro-Hillary Clinton social media campaign Humanity for Hillary, features multiple women sharing their stories of being the victims of sexual assault. The interviews are spliced between footage from 2005 of GOP presidential nominee Trump making lewd comments about women while filming a segment for the entertainment news show “Access Hollywood.”
“Grab them by the p---y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
Trump apologized, calling his remarks “locker room talk.”
“We’re not going to take it anymore,” says Tamblyn. The “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star recently revealed on Instagram her own experience with sexual abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend.
“What are we supposed to do, you know? You’re talking about harassing us, like that’s okay,” one of the women in the video, directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus, says to the camera.
“Not okay,” then says Streep, shaking her head. The Oscar winner is a prominent supporter of Democratic White House hopeful Clinton, and appeared onstage at the Democratic National Convention in July.
Other stars, including Dunham, Rose McGowan, Schumer, Gyllenhaal, and Rosie Perez all repeat the “It’s not okay,” line in rapid succession.
“It’s not okay,” says “The View” co-host Goldberg, “seriously.”
