Taraji P. Henson Applauds Lizzo’s $1 Million Planned Parenthood Pledge at the 2022 BET Awards

It’s about darn time, according to Taraji P. Henson, that Lizzo receives the praise she merits.

During her opening monologue, the host of the 2022 BET Awards praised Lizzo not only for her great performance of her hit song “About Damn Time” at the start of the show, but also for working with Live Nation to donate $1 million to Planned Parenthood and other groups that support abortion rights after the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

I’d want to thank the wonderful Lizzo. “That is how a show should begin,” Taraji started. “Up here, there’s a lot of body positivity.

I also want to congratulate Lizzo on her $1 million donation to Planned Parenthood. It’s about darn time. You’re damn correct about that. “

It’s about darn time we step into our power, “Tara added as she resumed her speech on stage.

It’s about damn time we talked about how in America, weapons are more powerful than women, she remarked. “America is having a gloomy day.

A weapon that can kill people has more power than a woman who, if she so chooses, may give life. I need to get that off my chest like yesterday. “

Lizzo made a donation promise on Instagram on June 24 after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that established a person’s constitutional right to an abortion in the United States.

From my upcoming tour, I’m donating $500K to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights. “Live Nation agreed to match, for a total of $1,000,000,” she composed. “Action and loud voices are very crucial.”

As these groups “will require cash to continue providing services to people who are most hurt by this restriction,” Lizzo said she will donate to Planned Parenthood, the National Network of Abortion Funds, and other groups with comparable missions.

She continued, “This is a significant loss, but not a new one. Black women and women of color have traditionally had substantially less access to family planning tools.

As Lizzo’s message came to an end, she asked her fans to “donate, sign the Bans Off My Body petition, and sign up to volunteer.”

And Lizzo is hardly the only celebrity who has commented on the subject. Pink sent a stern message to any of her followers who agree with the recent Supreme Court decision on June 25 through Twitter.

And let’s be clear: if you think racism is OK, a gay person’s business, or that the government belongs in a woman’s uterus, then please, in the name of your Lord, never again listen to my music.” AND F—K OFF RIGHT AWAY. “Are we doing well?”

Viola Davis joined the conversation by posting on social media.

“And so it goes….Gutted,” she wrote in a June 24 Instagram post. “Now more than ever we have to use our voice and power! WE the people……”
