(RADIO.COM) – Kesha has spoken out in support of former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, who was brought up during the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Monday evening. Trump previously called Machado ‘Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.
“You did not deserve to be shamed by this monster,” Kesha wrote on social media. “Your body is NO ONE else’s business. Donald Trump said that your body or weight was an issue (which makes me so sad and just sick). But, I find the real problem here being his bloated, arrogant ego and offensive, racist, misogynist verbal diarrhea. He is a bully.”READ MORE: Person Lying In Roadway Run Over, Killed In Fremont
During the debate, Clinton attacked Trump for his derisive comments. “Donald, she has a name,” Clinton said. “Her name is Alicia Machado, and she has become a U.S. citizen — and you can bet she is going to vote this November.”
In her post Kesha added, “WORDS mean something, and can be extremely hurtful and dangerous. They stay deep inside you and can affect your emotional and mental health. I know this from personal experience. They are hard, and sometimes impossible, to ever forget. Please don’t let him get to you any longer, instead realize that you are a strong woman and a beautiful role model for standing up and telling the truth, even if it hurts to remember it. Much love, and mad respect.”
