During Monday’s debates, Hillary Clinton brought up the mistreatment of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado as an example of Donald Trump’s predilection for body-shaming, disrespecting women, and displaying misogynistic behavior. Quick refresher: Trump took shots at Machado’s body and Latina heritage respectively after she was crowned Miss Universe by calling her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.” He has yet to apologize. In fact, even after the debates, rather than show remorse, he chose to further comment on her weight gain in the wake of earning her crown.
People have rushed to support Machado, and one of her most prominent champions has been Kesha, a star that unfortunately knows all too well what it means to deal with misogyny in the spotlight.
We are so glad that Kesha used her platform and her power for good, to prop up a fellow lady who is dealing with struggles Kesha knows all too well. Check out the Instagram below:
