Celebrities React to Donald Trump’s Sexist 2005 Video Leak
Celebrities across Twitter have weighed in on the offensive recording, from pop stars to TV actors alike sharing their similarly shocked and repulsed reactions.
Zendaya said she was “disgusted,” though “not surprised,” by the video, while Cher slammed the GOP for continuing to support the controversial and unqualified nominee. Meanwhile, actress Emmy Rossum called Trump a “misogynistic entitled pig,” while Lena Dunham called for people who may have been triggered by his statements to take care of themselves.
On Friday, a video recorded in 2005 revealing Trump making graphic statements about women while conversing with TV host Billy Bush—including an admission that he tried to sleep with a married woman by taking her furniture shopping, as well as remarking that because he’s a “star” he can “grab [women] by the p—-“—leaked online.
He has since released a somewhat apologetic statement, claiming that the vulgar conversation was “locker room banter.”

Donald Trump thinks "when you're a star" you "can do anything" to women? Well you can't make me vote for you, you misogynistic entitled pig.

I'm just gonna start saying "I'm not a polished politician" when I've done something bad. Seems to be an acceptable answer for many people.

Whether you feel it consciously or not, hearing these words out of a candidate's mouth is a threat. Take care of yourselves this weekend.
