Amber Tamblyn Slams Nude Donald Trump Sculptures: 'Body Shaming Is Never Okay'
By Jennifer Drysdale
Amber Tamblyn is speaking out.
The 33-year-old actress isn't laughing at the nude sculptures of Donald Trump that have appeared in major cities around the U.S. lately, taking to social media to air her frustrations with the figures made in the presidential hopeful's likeness.
"Body shaming is never okay, even when it comes to trump," she posted to Facebook on Sunday, along with a photo of one of the sculptures wearing a sign reading, "Shame Me For My Behavior Not My Body."
"These statues aren't art: They are a lazy, unoriginal concept, stolen mind you, from Illma Gore's painting which already made this exact same point earlier this year," Tamblyn said. "This is wholly unoriginal and uncreative."
The statues, titled "The Emperor Has No Balls," depict Trump in an unflattering light, especially in regard to his manhood. The pieces were placed in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Cleveland last week, by the artist collective INDECLINE, and have already been taken down in several cities.
The statue was also removed from New York's Union Square, although the parks department had a different reason to protest; taking a little jab at the Republican nominee in their explanation for the piece's removal.
"NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small," the department said in a statement.
And while Tamblyn doesn't find the statues funny, she does find humor in Trump's values. "Satirize Trump's values to the fullest- yr about to see me do it- but not his body like he does ours," she tweeted on Tuesday.
