Celebrities including Amy Schumer, Meryl Streep, and Whoopi Goldberg—as well as other, non-celebrity women—star in a PSA about sexual assault that condemns Donald Trump’s “locker room talk,” calling it "not OK." After an Access Hollywood tape leaked of Trump’s "grab them by the p***y” comment, he waved it off as “locker room talk.” His response to the comments is being scrutinized even more now that multiple women have come forward to accuse Trump of sexually assaulting them.
In the PSA, sexual assault survivors recall their own stories of assault occurring when they were as young as 12 or 13. Surprised by how young they are? In 1992 Trump appeared in a video talking about dating a 10-year-old girl.
“I think people like Donald Trump will never understand the correlation that women understand between words and actions. Especially when you’re a man in a position of power and you talk that way publicly, you’re telling the world, you’re telling everyone that it’s okay to behave that way,” said Amber Tamblyn, best known for her role in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, in the video.
In between the women describing their own sexual assaults and rape is footage of Trump denying the previously mentioned sexual assault allegations, calling them “pure fiction” and “outright lies.” Also appearing in the PSA are Rosie Perez and Rose McGowan, who days ago revealed her own story of being raped by a Hollywood executive.
The PSA was created by the pro-Hillary Clinton collective Humanity for Hillary. Humanity for Hillary has previously recruited stars for other videos, including Orange Is The New Black stars Uzo Aduba and Taylor Schilling, as well as Lena Dunham. The PSA, titled “It’s not ok,” echoes the It’s Not OK hashtag that started trending after Trump’s comments became public, with women tweeting about their experiences with sexual assault.
