Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and more stars blast 4th of July celebrations after Roe v Wade ruling
Kim Kardashian have blasted the United States over a "shortage of Independence" for women.
As the nation celebrated Independence Day (04.07.22), the 41-year-old reality star and her sister Kourtney Kardashian were among the celebrities taking aim at the Supreme Court's recent decision to overturn Roe v Wade, which previously protected women's rights to an abortion.
The two sisters both shared an Instagram graphic from Anita Elizabeth Bitton, which read: "4th of July has been canceled due to a shortage of Independence. Sincerely, women."
Singer Katy Perry, 37, also criticised the decision and compared women's rights the those of a "sparkler".
Referencing one her own songs, she tweeted: "'Baby you’re a firework' is a 10 but women in the US have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh."
And actress Jessica Chastain, 45, shared a photo of herself flashing both middle fingers at the camera.
She captioned the Instagram snap: "Happy 'Independence' Day from me and my reproductive rights."
Jameela Jamil, 36, also shared a message on her own social media account as she insisted it was Independence Day for anyone without a uterus.
The post read: "Independence Day, unless you have a uterus.
"Then go f*** yourself and we don’t care if you f****** die or if we derail your entire future and mental health-day I guess? Cool…"
Meanwhile, actress Rachel Brosnahan, 31, said she feels "sick to her stomach" over the 4th July shootings in her hometown of Highland Park, Illinois where six people were killed during a celebratory parade on the public holiday.
She tweeted: "I grew up in Highland Park and this parade is a highlight of the year for so many families.
"I’m sick to my stomach every time news like this comes out, but I don’t wish the pit in your stomach as you call your family and friends to make sure everyone is okay on anyone."
