Lady Gaga is adding hers to the wave of voices protesting Donald Trump’s stunning upset over Hillary Clinton during Tuesday night’s presidential election, though she’s taking things one step further: to the streets.
After leaving Manhattan’s Javits Center, where fellow celebrities like Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham joined her in the hopes of watching Clinton take the stage for a speech as the president-elect, the Oscar-nominated singer-songwriter protested in the streets outside Trump Tower in New York Ctiy following Clinton’s loss, holding a sign that read “Love trumps hate” as the building’s logo loomed overhead.
“I want to live in a #CountryOfKindness where #LoveTrumpsHate,” she tweeted alongside a photo of her hoisting the sign above her head from the side of a truck.
Before leaving Clinton headquarters in New York, Gaga posed for a picture with civil rights activist DeRay McKesson, which she posted to Instagram as a means to keep the faith as Clinton’s chances dwindled into the night.
“In a room full of hope, we will be heard,” she captioned the photo. “#blacklivesmatter Stand up for kindness, equality, and love.”
Gaga hit the campaign trail with Clinton at a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina during the wee hours of Tuesday morning, performing a duet of the 1986 tune “Livin’ On A Prayer” alongside rocker Bon Jovi before launching into a solo performance of her own “Come to Mama,” which appears on her latest album, Joanne.
Over the weekend, Gaga also called out Trump’s wife, Melania, for a Nov. 3 speech she gave in which the Yugoslavia native called for an end to online bullying.
“To say u will stand for ‘anti-bullying’ is hypocrisy,” Gaga, who previously established the non-profit Born This Way Foundation, aimed at eradicating cyber bullying, tweeted Sunday. “Your husband is 1 of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.”
