The show fell on the day after Donald Trump was sworn in as president and women’s marches were taking place across the United States and in other major cities like Paris.

“I was criticizing people this morning for attacking Melania and saying horrible things,” Boy George said of some protesters directing their various frustrations at the first lady.

George spoke specifically of people criticizing the former model for posing nude during her modeling career. “You know what, as somebody who has a past I think it’s really wrong and mean spirited of women to be so abusive,” the “Culture Club” singer said. “She looked amazing yesterday,” George said of Melania’s first day as first lady.

Although the singer defended Melania, he added that he was disappointed Trump didn’t mention the LGBT community in his inauguration speech on Friday.

“A leader is supposed to be compassionate and inclusive, that’s a real leader,” George said. “Being strong isn’t necessarily the answer. It takes strength to be compassionate and to think about people you maybe don’t understand.”

“So when you say things like ‘all Americans,’ it meansĀ allĀ Americans and everyone around the world,” George said.
