The cast of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black is joining a growing list of celebrities denouncing Donald Trump.
Several stars have come forward in the past week in response to the GOP nominee’s released audio recordings from 2005, in which he made lewd and sexually aggressive comments about women. Since he addressed the issue, denying any sexual assault during the second presidential debate, hosted by Anderson Cooper, women have continued to come forward to allege that Trump has groped, touched or offended them over the years, putting his campaign on the defensive.
On Friday, OITNB star Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo on the critically praised series, tweeted a photo of herself with some of the cast and crew of the prison dramedy with the caption, “CAST & CREW OF OITNB SAYS F— YOU TRUMP.” Stars Taryn Manning, Emma Myles and Beth Dover were also in the Snap.
Several castmembers, including Uzo Aduba, Taylor Schilling, Natasha Lyonne and Lea DeLaria, starred in an ad with other stars this summer to endorse Hillary Clinton. In the video, Lena Dunham says, “If you believe in equality for women, LGTBQ, people of color and immigrants, then there is only one choice this November: Hillary Clinton.”
Several TV casts have come out to endorse Democratic presidential nominee Clinton, including the casts of Empire, Scandal and Dunham’s Girls.

More women have come forward with stories about Trump this week. After a former People reporter recalled Trump trying to forcibly kiss her and two women revealed their stories in an article in The New York Times, a former Apprentice contestant held a press conference on Friday to tell her story. She says she was kissed and groped by Trump at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2007. Summer Zervos says the release of the now-infamous Access Hollywood tapes and Trump’s subsequent denials of wrongdoing made her feel the need to speak out.
