John Legend: Say ‘No’ To Brett Kavanaugh
Musician John Legend entered the political sphere again Wednesday as the face of a digital ad calling to reject the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“Who becomes the next Supreme Court Justice is the decision of a lifetime,” Legend began. “Brett Kavanaugh’s troubling views on the issues that matter most and his rushed confirmation process make him unfit for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.”
The ad was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday by the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and a press release associated with the video says it was unveiled by a “diverse coalition of social justice organizations.”
The coalition is made of 14 progressive organizations and non-profits including Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, The Human Rights Campaign and the NAACP.
“This fall, your senators vote on Kavanaugh. How they vote will impact you for a lifetime,” Legend said.
“Tell them to vote ‘no’ on Kavanaugh. Remember: they answer to you,” he ended.
“From the outset, leading national civil rights and social justice organizations have criticized Brett Kavanaugh’s hostile record on voting rights, reproductive health, worker’s rights, gun safety, LGBTQ rights, the protection of immigrants, and racial equality, as well as his maximalist views on executive power,” the coalition’s statement read.
Legend is no stranger to voicing his political opinions, and just recently sent out a call for “out of shape” white actors to play the roles of President Donald Trump supporters for an upcoming music video.
Legend also called for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to resign in June if she “doesn’t want be held accountable for the administration’s evil.” (RELATED: John Legend Makes Racist Claims Against Trump Following Leaked ‘S***Hole’ Comment)
Allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh surfaced on Sept. 14. His accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, has yet to decide if she will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday.
