The cast and crew of Orange Is The New Black did not mince words Friday when they sent a message to Donald Trump: 'F*** You.' The OITNB fam is the latest major TV show to denounce Trump, following last week's endorsement of Hillary Clinton by the case of Empire.
OITNB's Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo on the Netflix series, tweeted the message along with a photo of cast and crew wearing shirts reading 'Vaginas Against Trump.' Pictured in the fittingly orange and black shirts are DeLaria herself, Taryn Manning a.k.a. Pennsatucky, and Emma Myles a.k.a Leanne.

The shirts are a refutation of the recently-released 2005 tape of Trump making comments about how women will let you do anything when you're a star, including allowing you to "Grab them by p***y." At least five women have made allegations against Trump in recent days, accusing him of touching them inappropriately. Other women have come forward to reveal that Trump's alleged inappropriate behavior in years past has included walking in on naked beauty pageant contestants. Sexual assault hits close to home for the OITNB cast, as it's one of the issues the show has tackled.
OITNB cast members have been vocal about their support for Clinton, with cast members Uzo Aduba, Lea DeLaria, Taylor Schilling, and Natasha Lyonne appearing in an ad for her. OITNB star Laverne Cox has also been public about supporting Clinton.
