Celebrities Against Donald Trump: Lena Dunham, Zendaya, Cher & More Blast GOP Nominee Over Vulgar Comments [VIDEO]
The new leaked Donald Trump video, which features the presidential candidate speaking lewdly about women, has outraged a great number of celebrities.
A new video acquired by The Washington Post features footage from 2005, with Trump speaking with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush on a bus. The businessman was giving an interview to promote his forthcoming appearance on Days of Our Lives, but the comments presented in this video were heard with a hot mic.
Trump tells Bush that he tried to make the moves on a married woman - this being several months after he married Melania himself. They notice actress Arianne Zucker, who is set to escort Trump to the soap opera's set. At this point, Trump talks about wanting to kiss her.
"I've got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her," Trump says, of Zucker. "You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."
Then he makes the following comments.
"And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."
A voice (who may or may not be Bush) answers, "Anything you want"
"Grab them by the p---y," Trump states. "You can do anything."
Trump has since apologized for these comments, saying in a Friday video, "I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize." He also said the tapes were "a distraction from the issues we are facing today" and noted that former President Bill Clinton has said worse things to him on the golf course.
Numerous celebrities have spoken out against Trump on Twitter following this tape revelation. Check out some of the best reactions below.
If there was a popular male equivalent experience, being #grabbedbythepussy would be cause for capital punishment.

u don't have to use your daughters and wives as surrogates for your outrage over #TrumpTapes. You can just be offended as a human being.

"Liberal media" has to stop attacking Trump by playing actual recordings of him saying things that he wants to say. Not cool.#TrumpTapes
