Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel CANCEL 4th of July over Roe v Wade repeal
As a result of the overturning of Roe v Wade, celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and others posted on social media that the Fourth of July was canceled owing to a shortage of independence for women.
Katy Perry used a phrase from one of her best singles, ‘Firework,’ in a tweet to her 100 million+ followers on Monday, July 4, to express her wrath over the most recent ruling by the US Supreme Court. Perry tweeted, “Baby you’re a firework’ is a 10, but women in the U.S. have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh.” On July 4, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian both posted Bitton's message to their Instagram followers that stated, “4th of July has been canceled due to a shortage of independence. Sincerely, Women.” Actress Jessica Chastain posted a photo of herself holding up her two middle fingers on Twitter. She sarcastically captioned the photo, “Happy ‘Independence’ Day from me and my reproductive rights.”
Others like Zooey Deschanel also shared a similar view on the latest Supreme Court ruling. Deschanel wore a tee, which read, “Pro Roe 1973.” She captioned the snap, “For when you want to wish America a happy birthday, but also want her to do better.” Activist Jameela Jamil also weighed in, offering some strong words on her various social media platforms. She wrote, “Independence Day unless you have a uterus. Then go f–k yourself and we don’t care if you f–king die or if we derail your entire future and mental health day I guess? Cool..”

Model Brooklyn Decker also took to Instagram, arguing that this country ‘doesn’t work for everyone or keep everyone safe.’ “Today I carry both an abundance of gratitude and swelling of anger. I know I share that with so many of you. May we sustain our fury to propel this complicated country forward and not further backward,” she remarked. Following the SCOTUS decision, many celebrities, including Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler, Meadow Walker, Halsey, Patton Oswalt, Ellen DeGeneres, and Lily Allen posted their opinions against the verdict.
Schumer shared a message on Instagram that read, “Are you ready to fight back when Roe is overturned?” Handler shared a screenshot of a tweet with her millions of followers that read, “3 Supreme Court justices were placed on the bench by a twice impeached president who did not win the popular vote and who led an insurrection. Our democracy is crumbling before our eyes. Wake up, fight back, no justice no peace!”

A 10-year-old rape victim was reportedly denied an abortion in Ohio this week, prompting celebrities like Sophia Bush and Alyson Stoner to speak out. They reposted a message that said, “She’s 10’ is trending because a 10-year-old girl in Ohio had to travel to Indiana for an abortion since she was 3 days past the 6-week ban in her state. But yeah, who else is psyched for ‘Independence Day’ this year?” Sharing the post to her Instagram Stories, Stoner added, “Anyone else finds it hard to tap into the ‘holiday’ spirit when this is the reality in front of us?”
In Ohio you can't donate organs from someone who died w/o their consent—but Ohio's abortion ban forces a 10-year-old rape victim to have her rapists child w/o her consent, or leave the state.— Qasim Rashid, Esq. (@QasimRashid) July 2, 2022
In short—even a corpse in Ohio has more rights over its body than do women & girls.😳
