Kesha Supports Former Miss Universe After Donald Trump Body Shames Her
Kesha took to Instagram last night to write former Miss Universe Alicia Machado a personal note of support.
Alicia has been at the center of attention after being referred to “somebody who likes to eat a lot,” by Presidential candidate Donald Trump, shortly after she took the crown in 1996. During the first round of presidential debates this past Monday, Hillary Clinton called Donald out for his repeated body shaming of women, including the Venezuelan beauty queen.
On Tuesday, in an interview with Fox and Friends, Donald did not back down from his comments, according to The New York Times, even saying “she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a problem.”
Earlier this week, Kesha publicly supported Alicia, stating, “I want to give my support and respect to you, Alicia. You did not deserve to be shamed by this monster. Your body is NO ONE else’s business. Donald Trump said that your body or weight was an issue (which makes me so sad and just sick). but, I find the real problem here being his bloated, arrogant ego and offensive, racist, misogynist verbal diarrhea. he is a bully. WORDS mean something, and can be extremely hurtful and dangerous. They stay deep inside you and can affect your emotional and mental health. I know this from personal experience. They are hard, and sometimes impossible, to ever forget. please don’t let him get to you any longer, instead realize that you are a strong woman and a beautiful role model for standing up and telling the truth, even if it hurts to remember it. much love, and mad respect ❤️🙏🏻❤️”
