Ashley Judd Recites ‘I Am a Nasty Woman’ Poem at Women’s March on Washington (Watch)

Watch Ashley Judd's 'Nasty Woman' Speech

Michael Moore was in for a surprise during the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday when Ashley Judd interrupted him to read a politically charged poem.

“I am Ashley Judd,” she declared as Moore reacted in shock, “and I am a feminist.”

She proceeded to recite a poem written by a 19-year-old named Nina Donovan from Tennessee. The contents of the writing included references to Trump’s election, mass incarceration, LGBT rights, the wage gap, and more relevant issues. At one point, the poem compares Trump to Adolf Hitler.

“I feel Hitler in these streets,” Judd said, “A mustache traded for a toupee. Nazis renamed.”

The poem repeated the refrain “I am not as nasty as…” at one point attacking Trump’s relationship with his daughter, Ivanka.

“I’m not as nasty as your daughter being your favorite sex symbol,” Judd said.

At another point, Judd name-checked Scarlett Johansson who also spoke at the march. “Scarlett Johansson, why were the female actors paid less than half of what the male actors earned?”

In conclusion, Judd spoke in reference to Trump’s infamous “grab them by the p—y” comment.

“Our p—ies ain’t for grabbing,” Judd said. “Our p—ies are for our pleasure and they are for birthing new generations… of nasty women.”

    It’s interesting how you try to take the moral high ground in one sentence, then slam rape survivors in the next.

    Oh, and nobody’s gonna ban Hollywood. Or even hurt it with boycotts.

  3. Samantha Barnes says:

    I admire her for her strength, courage and compassion. I’ve copied and pasted this from Wikipedia: Amal Clooney is a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers, specializing in international law and human rights. Her clients include Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, in his fight against extradition.

    I’m palled at Ashley Judd speech, its disgraceful to hear a woman talk like that in public. After all she was talking out of anger for being raped which has nothing to do with equal Rights for Woman. The type of speech , or should I say TRASH speech didn’t belong to be said in front of younger woman to hear. I ‘am 63 years old and I have never heard a woman or man describe their sexual parts of their body in public like she described herself. Please Ashley go away and become a decent woman like Amal Clooney is… Please shut up you don not SPEAK for me as a woman.

  4. houxisholly2 says:

    me thinks you poem writer is a forgery for Liz Taylors performance in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”(film) copycat on a hot tin roof.

  5. Ashley Judd is a mentally ill pig. Disgusting piece of garbage. She is ugly so much inside, it comes out of her pores and makes her look like a unbathed disease ridden inhuman creature.

  6. wow she is so hot i always loved Ashley but she has never looked so fiery and beautiful as she does now i have always been a big fan and Admirer of Ashley’s for the longest!

  7. Steel says:

    I suggest to all people to type in, U.S. Military Tribute – Far Away -Nickleback. Our military women and men volunteered. If it were not for them, there would not be Freedom, Free Speech and Protests in the U.S.A. I am disgusted by Ashley Judd and Madonna. You acted crazy! They went so far overboard, I could not even tell what the women were protesting. I am not sure they even knew. Why is it okay to delete some women because you didn’t like their Freedom of Speech? Wake Up!

  8. Mike says:

    Wow, no wonder she is divorced.

  9. Cooter says:

    Ashley you’re not only nasty you’re angry and an embarrassment to those of us from KY. You’re angry b/c you can’t do anything like your mom and sister, never have and definitely never will now. The only man that you were ever interested in was a married former UK basketball coach when you attended all the games and wore those slinky see thru UK tops. Besides none of your movies were ever good. So glad Mario saw the light especially before this debacle. YOU ARE JUST SO JEALOUS.

    • Steve says:

      Jesus. Did Ashley run over your kitty or something?

      And in general….people are still angry about this? Really? It was just a damned poem. Move on.

  10. jackie says:

    Her “verbal expression” is beyond disgusting. She really shows her classless style….some things do not need to be shared is such a vile manner. She has no class…she could have vocalized in a more tasteful speech. I have no respect for her she is a pig

    • Sophie says:

      She got her point across.. just because you didn’t like how it was presented dosn’t mean a damn thing. That “verbal expression” your complaining about is a backbone to tell the good, the bad, and the ugly, and that’s exactly what she did. At least she spoke up about things that needed to be said, and at least it was in a direct manner, without the fake frosting or polite words that get nothing across to an audience. She shared views on common struggles..calm down. It’s ALOT better than some fried cheeto who wants to express his sexual urges and urges for the public to condemn this as “okay” and “proper” behavior.

  11. Patricia says:

    I have always had respect for Ashley Judd as an actress, professional and as the person she presented herself as. After this I withdraw ALL respect and am ashamed I ever thought she was decent in any way as an American woman.
    You Ashley Judd and Madonna and ALL at that march do NOT speak for me or my daughters, sisters or Mother.
    How disgusting can you get and think it is ok? Rediculous!!!

  12. Kathleen Bridget says:

    I always thought the word nasty was negative, like slut. How embarrassing.

  13. Ernest Harr says:

    I have been encouraged that enough Americans rejected the siren call of the Hollywood and Music
    industries “all in the tank for Hillary” mentality. An affliction also shared by 90% of American media which
    also became part of the Democratic campaign. Judd’s and Madonna’s hysterical rants are based in despair… shout out’s in recognition of their own diminished sense of self importance in the general public’s eye.

    • mcgwynne says:

      Both Ashley and Madonna were reading other people’s words did you notice??

      Was this some mad attempt at auditioning on live TV for roles in movies playing “powerful” women?

      Seems rather desperate.

      Fighting for relevance rather than genuine concern for women’s rights.

      Sad and kind of pathetic too.
      What is all this feminist rage really about?

      Please help us guys figure it out?

      Stealing scenes from a toxic wimp like Michael Moore is child’s play making Judd’s rude and interruptive self-centered blurt blatantly designed to get attention

      Just like a spoiled teenager.

      Ladies,ladies, ladies!!!
      We love you! We need you! We want you!
      Don’t be so angry that you drive us away.

      Or were both of those performances just ways to stay in the limelight ?

  14. Eileen A Manson says:

    Was Ashley Judd on drugs? Her “poem presentation ” was over the top, over acted, along with her over -dyed hair, i guess this is what happens when you are starting to become ” over the hill” in Hollyweird. It was a Bizarre Performance. I’m still thinking what was that suppose to be??? She needs to read up on Hitler.

  15. Slc says:

    Knew Hitler was going to come up…“I feel Hitler in these streets,” Judd said, “A mustache traded for a toupee. Nazis renamed.” “I’m a nasty woman.” Yeah, so am I, but I act like a woman. Insult his daughter and you’re a “feminist??” If you are so angry, then LEAVE.

  16. Larry Quisenberry says:

    I am a Kentuckian and a big UK fan. Unfortunately, Ashley JUDD showed her lack of integrity as well as intelligence when she lost it when she was comparing Trump with Hitler. It would have been nice to have seen her at the prayer meeting with Trump and Dr.David Jeremiah and the many ministers from Kentucky the day before President Trump took the oath of office. Even better, it would have been better had she attended the thousands walking in the Right to Life March. But Ashley would probably not feel comfortable around people who show real love and caring for those unborn babies who lose their lives because of people with perverted values. Ashley, there were children listening to your sad and nasty language. You might want to rethink and evaluate your status as a role model to so many young people. You might want to consider visiting one of the many churches in Kentucky who teach and live real love and not the hate and vulgar language that you so carefully exhibited in your Washington act. May you and I, as well as all Christians in our nation grow in mercy and grace that Jesus gave us. Only then can we show Godly love towards all people from all religions and those who do not believe in a deity.

  17. Marilyn says:

    This wasn’t a speech for women’s rights! I am a woman and embarrassed by her. She doesn’t speak for me nor any other woman that has any pride in herself. This tirade was a vulgar and did not speak to our rights in any “educational ” manner. Go back to making B movies like BUG….

  18. sue dutton says:

    Career suicide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL NEVER watch one of her films again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!n She is sick and needs to support HER president. Ashley Judd, you disappoint and disgust me!!!!!!!!!

  19. Pat Rockford says:

    This is an important speech / poem. It’s staggering the amount of pushback still existing in the comments. All around Paddy, so many of the good women are changing. New norms are settling in. Ten years from now we will be teaching this, and it’s sacred importance, in our schools.

    Blessings, Ashley.

    • mcgwynne says:

      They’ll be teaching it alright but not in the way you think.

      This will be just another example of self-serving over-ripe “celebrities” expressing outrage joining the far Left condemning a president they just don’t like.

      For reasons they seem unable to express aside from spluttering and alienating their once loyal audience.

      Worse, their words seem to invite violence in response.

      Inciting heated reactions in a crowd is not helpful.

      It destroys the faith that would result in fruitful actions from individuals rather than a blind and outraged mob.

      Seems like some kind of weird martyrdom too.

    • Steve says:

      Thank you for this. It’s a blessed note of calm amongst all the overwrought outrage.

  20. carla Fox says:

    …Oh yeah … flipping the station when a Madonna song comes on. Done with her too.

  21. Jennifer says:

    Ashely, I have always loved your mom and sister! Your speech made me sick!

  22. Pippin says:

    Ashley sounded demonically possessed. What’s up with her?

  23. Maddy says:

    I am almost speechless. Wow…out of all of the media’s coverage of different events during the past presidential election and following events the women’s march this past weekend is the most incredibly embarrassing to watch. I believe in free speech. I am however conscience of the fact that some people in society view people like Madonna and Ashley Judd differently just because of their job. Actors..Athletes and Musicians…are PEOPLE. These people are well aware, however, of the impact their celebrity has on others. The people whether they are celebrities or waiters who continue to incite the hatred because their candidate lost the election apparently don’t want our nation to heal. These people would be insenced if these comments were in regards to Obama. I DID NOT want Obama to win his re-election bid in 2012. It took a while to remember I can do something in the future to change things and I did. I hope people understand what Madonna and Ashley Judd said does NOT represent all women. Our new President has yet to be in office a week and I am soo proud of what he’s done. In order to stop the rioting and heal our division we need to somehow find the common good. For those of you who want a different President in 2020 do your part …In a positive and peaceful way. When my son asked me to take down my Trump sticker after he won because he was afraid someone would hurt me or my car (knowing if someone hurt me he couldn’t let that go)..anyway the fact we are truly in an environment of such fear and hatred is sobering. I pray for both our new President and for those who don’t agree with me. I just hope that at some point celebrities who have “acted” so horribly need to please think about how your impacting people. You have a choice and Americans who did vote for our President will have a hard time forgetting your words and the way they view your jobs (which rely heavily on public support) Please just be responsible..word matter. God bless!

  24. Rick Owen says:

    A juvenile rant that takes everything it cites out of context — and quite uncharitably (applying a criticism of Hillary to all women) and hypocritically (no tolerance or acceptance here of others who differ), beginning with a caricature of a person’s skin and hair color (racism?) — repeated by another(older) woman, who should’ve known better but apparently allowed vulgar emotions to override reason, bringing herself and all who cheered her down to lower levels of credibility. Hardly the way to gain more respect.

  25. larence says:

    Ashley Judd is sick. Counseling would not help her.

  26. Ta says:

    Ashley Judd is a hypocritical disgusting pig.

  27. Claram says:

    This women is a PSYCHO!!!! She claimed years ago to have been a victim of incest by her father and had the nerve to recite that disgusting mess insinuating that President Trump was incestuous with his daughter. That tells me she was probably lying for attention when she made claims about her past to sell books. How angry and vile she is! Another soulless Hollywood fruitcake looking to jump on the bandwagon. So embarrassed for her poor family

  28. Max says:

    You are an embarrassment to women! You are uninformed and obviously not educated enough to be able to speak the truth. I can’t figure out for the life of me why you celebrities think you have any more of voice than any other citizen in America. You don’t! Therefore, you make idiots out of yourselves and get your movies/shows banned by viewers for showing your TRUE self I will never watch anything you are in again.

  29. Elle says:

    Ashley Judd…you’re too old to be talking nasty to The President. Have some respect t to America…. ancient lady. no movies anymore for you b’cause you’re already too old that must be why you are now talking nasty. LOSER and passé!!

  30. Bren says:

    I am sick of the Hollyweird folks running their big so called privileged mouths. Your crap stinks just like the next persons. Just because they make the big money, well quit giving it to them. As a consumer we all have the power to hit them where it hurts. We all should boycott Hollyweird. Quit spending your hard earned money watching them on the big screen, quite buying all the magazines that Idolize them. I am serious, that is what I plan to start doing. None of these “women” represent me in any fashion. I used to like the Ashley Judd. No more indeed.

  31. Karen Rancilio says:

    Ms. Judd…You may know how to read lines; apparently you do not comprehend their meaning. Such anger, hate and disrespect. Another celeb off my list to watch! Seek help!

  32. Patricia Kephart says:

    Nasty women you are indeed.Everyone agrees on that.

  33. Bob meyers says:

    Dave J wants to make accuses for AJ. Maybe he can explain why America’s were left to die in a US Embassy in Liberia during Obama’s watch. Maybe it’s because weapons left in Iraq were being send to ISIS and they wanted to get rid of all the lose end that could connect the dots

  34. Bob meyers says:

    She is more then nasty. She needs real help. I feel bad for her family.

  35. Rose Jones says:

    Nasty is the word. Nasty spirit that AJ is showing. Nasty words that she is using. NASTY!

  36. Nancy Webb says:

    You are so sickening and don’t even make any sense what so ever. I hope you find salvation for your soul then maybe you will understand how to conduct yourself in a Godly manner!

  37. Cynthia Breuer says:

    OMG. What are you even talking about. It is so random and makes no sense what so ever!! I am ashamed to be a female right now because of you .

  38. maria says:

    as a woman, Ashley Judd DOES NOT represent me.

  39. Ashley Judd is a looser.. Literally! She could not even beat Ol’Mich for political office with her high caliber supporters. Sorry ladies, you can claim her as one of your own truly bat crazy pussy..

    • marywatkins says:

      I use to like Ashley. She has a loose screw somewhere. Didn’t someone say her husband left her because of mental issues? Maybe this is why we no longer see her on the big screen!!

  40. johnny boy says:

    A complete turn-off by Mad-on-anut ,Cher, BS Steisand, Judd, jane fonda . Screaming about their pussies to a crowd wearing pussy hats and bemoaning privately made statements by someone 12 years ago. I don’t get it. Of course understanding lunacy, delirium, hate, hypocrisy, does not always lend itself to rational explanation.

  41. Lynn says:

    What? Is she nuts? Good Lord this is ridiculous and her rankings DO NOT represent me as a woman.

  42. Marie says:

    Ashley sounds like a complete nut job. She doesn’t represent my views at all… what an embarrassment.

  43. Theresa Simonetti says:

    Why don’t these high & mighty pussy fighting women Go to another country where Women have NO rights! Like Protest in Iran or Iraq or Dubai, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and all the other loving muslim/islam countries. Why don’t they go there and march around with their pink pussy signs and hats and protest for the women’s rights there????

    Oh because their afraid? they’d be raped, imprisoned & killed? oh right. So they just march here where they already have the right to do so.

    Hollywood millionaires should go outside this country if they really want to make a difference.

  44. Theresa Simonetti says:

    Absolutely disgusting! I will never watch another movie she’s in. I’m ashamed to have my 3 daughters watch or hear anything these women said. :-( Yuck & grotesque.

  45. Donna Bap says:

    Lets boycott all of these celebrities that are spewing hatred ie; Madonna, Ashley Judd, Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore. The country voted accept it and move on or pack your bags and get the hell out of our great country .

    • Colette Shewcraft says:

      Never mind the crazy POS sittin’ in the WH spewing hatred and ugly! HELL YEAH!!! Rock on Pussy Power!!!

    • gena logrecco says:

      Don’t forget John Legend, Robert De stupid Neiro! BOYCOTT THEM ALL! DON’T BUY ANYTHING

    • Steve says:

      They’re not protesting the election anymore. They’re protesting what he’s done, and what he’s said he’ll do, as president. Since they’re citizens of this great country, they get to do that. I’m joining them. And we aren’t going anywhere.

      • Claram says:

        You have to be a SHIL I hope for your sake you are. That was supposed to be a women’s march for women’s rights. Although i have no idea why they felt like their rights are being challenged. Not a single issue has come up around that. It was the paid GEORGE SOROS protestors and the corrupt MAIN STREAM MEDIA who try to turn it into a march against PResident TRUMP. Just as they did when turning Obamas claim that Russia hacked the DNC emails into RUSSIA hacked the election. Grow some brains and some balls STEVIE IT was called a women’s march for a reason!!

      • marywatkins says:

        Well Steve its called a woman’s march, I BELIEVE YOU ARE A MAN!! Protesting what he has done??? He hadn’t been in office 24 hrs when they started to march. Get a job. At least Trump wants to make this country better. We should all be glad . Obama did nothing but go on vacation. How many vacations did you get ? I DIDNT Get ONE.

      • Nikki says:

        Then you, too are a complete idiot.

  46. Mackenzie says:

    Judging by these crazy, hateful left-wing bastards (like Ashley Judd, Madonna, Alec Baldwin and all the other talentless, sadistic, greedy creeps), they are the Nazis of America.

    I see them as psychotics monsters that want what is worse for America. They act like spoiled rich brats not getting what they want in toy stores.


    I am right-wing and PROUD of it!

  47. ghettoman says:

    These women are nothing more than a bunch of communist misandrists.

  48. And the liberals call Trump crazy???

    Here career should be over, I think all of us ‘Deplorable’s’ should boycott her and that nitwit Madonna.

  49. Robert Byrd says:

    ashley Judd i thought was a decent actress, not great but ok. Now, if she wants to talk about pussies and hitler, she needs to go to iran and stay there! usa is for REAL delicate, fragile women, not Tramps! Her mouth is so so FOUL! I have never ever heard a woman say these nasty vulgar and despicable words!
    Its fine that these Millionaire actors come out and act like they are like the rest of us…oh yea–well them give up your millions and come live with us all, Lets see you give up that constant every day worry how to pay our bills,. You have so many gratitudes that we will never have! YOU get the fromnt row seats, YOU can buy a pair of $1,000 jeans and wear once and then throw away, to us common folks, thats a months salary! Why dont you volunteer to help President Trumps Admin to aid young women. Just think about it… YOU are here xxxxx and we are there xxxxx. You are NOT like the rest of us! When you got that first $10,000 check you became part of the ELITE . President Trump is fighting for US! You are them! We are US. Trump is fighting for US.

    • Nikki says:

      The reason Madona, Ashley Judd and their ilk are protesting is because they feel guilty for making millions of dollars for doing something they enjoy doing. I fear they protest too much. They are succeeding in bringing more people to the Republican party. Yeh, keep it up you nasty vitriolic women. You call President Trump vulgar and crazy? He doesn’t even compare to your nasty, sickening, and nonsensical behavior. I can no longer stand Ashley Judd and I never cared for Madona or Barbara Streisand. You morons just need to sing and act and leave your stupid opinions to yourselves. No one cares what you believe in. All you want to do is screw and then be allowed to kill your babies. Tough! Those days are almost over. No wonder God has ignored this country for the past 8 years. Guess what? We’re back. Thank you for getting rid of Hillary and Obama and allowing the election of Trump. Amen. Sit back and watch him undo all of the unconstitutional executive orders of Obama. Popcorn please.
