Here’s a thought: maybe normalizing the treatment of women as objects in entertainment is the sort of thing that helps gets a man with a history of being openly predatory towards women elected president.
You’re the Worst star Aya Cash shared a screenshot of an email she sent to her agent after her first audition in Trump’s America, which didn’t go so well. Cash describes the scene, in which women auditioning for the role were crying in the waiting room.
I was scared to post this publically, not wanting to insult people who give me opportunity but this is my response to my agent asking me about my audition yesterday. Thank you to my artistic community who give me courage. I fail all the time but there is always opportunity to try again and be better. I am not usually so earnest in social media but I feel stripped and exposed and scared and I need to keep talking. Some of you are saying that you will no longer follow me. That is your choice, this is mine.
