She joins a growing list of celebrities and performers like Amy Schumer, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson and Chelsea Handler who support the march in Washington, D.C. and across the country the day after Trump is sworn-in as president.
Johansson has said she will attend the march so she can “make my voice heard and stand up for what I believe in,” according to another report.
During the election, Beyoncé supported Hillary Clinton and appeared at an event to help try and get the Democratic presidential candidate elected. Trump criticized Clinton for having to use celebrities like Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z in order to get people out to her rallies.
“We don’t need Jay Z to fill up arenas,” Trump said. “We do it the old fashion way. We do it the old fashion way, folks.”
