Stars use the BET Awards platform to criticize the US Supreme Court’s abortion ruling


Several stars at the BET Awards ceremony Sunday night used the stage to criticize the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent abortion ruling.

Host for the Awards show actress Taraji P. Henson claimed guns in America had more rights than women, following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Janelle Monae, singer-songwriter and actress, similarly criticized the Supreme Court, holding her middle finger up as she read the nominations for best female R&B/pop artist.

Jazmine Sullivan, a Philadelphia-born singer-songwriter, described the post-Roe America as “a hard time” for women and called on men to “stand up.”

Jazmine Sullivan received the award for best female R&B/pop artist.
