The denizens of the Internet are none too pleased with the recent comments of a member of Hollywood royalty regarding the incoming presidency of Donald Trump.
Nicole Kidman recently spoke out about the vitriol surrounding Trump and those who oppose him. While not labeling herself as a Trump supporter Kidman is clearly growing tired of all of the fighting amongst either side and she said in regards to this:
I would just say he’s now elected and we as a country need to support whoever the president is, because that’s what the country’s based on.
Kidman is well aware that her comments would likely spark a firestorm and that is why she typically remains on silent on matters of political discourse:
I’m always reticent to start commenting politically. I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based. Whatever, however that happened, he’s there and let’s go.
It is foolish to believe Kidman is a Trump supporter considering all of the work she has done on behalf of women. Kidman reminded those who may be upset with her statement on Trump:
I’m very, very committed to women’s issues in terms of I do a lot of fundraising for U.N. Women and I do a lot of traveling for them. I also do an enormous amount of fundraising for breast and ovarian cancer, because that’s something that’s affected my family deeply. So they’re my issues that I’m very attached to.
The Academy Award winning actress is not going to let some angry Internet comments get her down, that’s for sure.
