OITNB cast and crew comes out against Donald Trump with new t-shirts
Add the cast and crew of Orange is the New Black to the list of celebrities coming out against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
On Friday, Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo on the critically acclaimed Netflix prison drama, shared a picture on Twitter of the show’s cast and crew wearing T-shirts that read “Vaginas Against Trump.”
“Cast & crew of OITNB says f— you Trump,” tweeted DeLaria along with the photo, which also includes cast members Taryn Manning, Emma Myles, and Beth Dover.
The Orange is the New Black team debuted their T-shirts the same week that several women came forward accusing the former host of The Apprentice of sexual misconduct. On Thursday, Trump denied these allegations in a press conference in Florida.
The list of celebrities opposing Trump has grown over the past year: Master of None‘s Aziz Ansari wrote a New York Times op-ed opposing the former host of the Apprentice; the cast of Empire endorsed former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a recent advertisement; and a group of musicians have teamed up to write 30 songs protesting Trump.
Jenji Kohan’s absorbing ensemble dramedy, based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name, takes viewers inside the walls of Litchfield, a minimum security women’s prison where nothing’s as simple as it seems—especially the inmates.
