Gotta love a strong woman who knows exactly how she feels!
Courtney Stodden reminded us that she’s a strong feminist when she took to Instagram over the weekend to slam Billy Bush over his whole Access Hollywood/Donald Trump drama, which ultimately cost him his job at NBC last fall!
The always outspoken 22-year-old took a pic in which she’s giving the finger to a Hollywood Reporter with Billy on the cover and wrote, “Just flippin’ the bird to someone who I think deserves one or maybe two. Respect women, don’t grab them by the p-ssy Billy Bush.”
The comment, of course, refers to President Trump’s now-infamous audio footage recorded between segments of an interview Billy did with the new president for Access Hollywood in 2005, during which he confesses, “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful [women] — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab them by the p-ssy. You can do anything.”
While Billy doesn’t actually make the crude comments, he was slammed and eventually fired for his role in the conversation.
Billy, 45, recently opened up for the first time about the tape and his firing — admitting that his teenage daughter was most disappointed to hear him laughing at the vulgar remarks — adding that he has a lot of regrets about his involvement.
“Looking back upon what was said on that bus, I wish I had changed the topic,” he told The Hollywood Reporter (for the same issue that Court is flipping off in the pic). “[Trump] liked TV and competition. I could’ve said, ‘Can you believe the ratings on whatever?’ But I didn’t have the strength of character to do it.”
Courtney’s passion for politics may come as a surprise to some — but during the election, she was an incredibly vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders.
