“Boycott all companies based in Texas that do not speak out against the despicable draconian evil that is happening there,” she added. “Boycott them all. Their tax dollars fuel this shit. So, boycott them now. Not one cent to support them no matter what.”

“The fury and rage we are feeling is powerful,” Arquette continued. “I love my warrior women who will never let this madness sustain. People who’ve signed off on this draconian barbaric legislation and male driven companies and corporations who continue to fuel it beware your time is gonna come.”
