Amber Tamblyn Doesn't Agree With Body Shaming Donald Trump

What do you think?

Amber Tamblyn may not be a Donald Trump supporter, but that doesn’t mean she thinks it’s OK to body shame the presidential candidate. 

On Sunday night, the actress and artist took to Facebook to share her thoughts on the naked statue of Trump ― complete with small penis and no testicles ― that popped up in New York (and four other American cities) last week. 

“Body shaming is never okay, even when it comes to trump,” she wrote in a note on the social networking site, alongside a photo of the statue covered with a sign that reads, “Shame me for my behavior not my body.”

“These statues aren’t art,” the actress added. “They are a lazy, unoriginal concept, stolen mind you, from Ilma Gore’s painting which already made this exact same point earlier this year. This is wholly unoriginal and uncreative.”

Plenty of Tamblyn’s followers weighed in on the subject by commenting on her post. Some agreed with the actress, while others felt that Trump deserved all the shaming he’s getting. To the latter notion, Tamblyn responded, “Ok so we should stoop to his level then?” 

The sculpture was created by anonymous street art collective Indecline, who previously told The Huffington Post, “We decided to depict Trump without his balls because we refuse to acknowledge that he is a man. He is a small arrogant child and thus, has nothing in the way of testicles.”

As Tamblyn pointed out in her status, the sculpture was not the first piece of art to depict Trump in the nude. Ilma Gore crafted an illustration of the real-estate-mogul-turned-politician, again with a small penis, and was later attacked for the drawing by a Trump supporter

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
