Joining her were her Mother/Daughter co-stars and crew members, including Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes, and Joan Cusack.

Amy starts off by stating, "Saying I love Beyoncé’s album Lemonade is a huge understatement. I believe it is one of the greatest pieces of art of our time."

Amy goes on to say how the cast and crew of Mother/Daughter were "all crazy for the album and also for Hillary Clinton."


Amy also points out that she "did not mean to detract any of the meaning from the video. I am of course horrified and sickened by the events that are addressed throughout that video and didn’t see this as minimizing that and still don’t. It was a way to celebrate bringing us all together."

Amy ended the essay with:

You have every right to feel however you feel about the video and me but I want you to know I’m not going anywhere. Use whatever hashtag you like. My mission is to continue to work as hard as I can to empower women and make them laugh and feel better and I won’t let anything stop me. #strongertogether #alllove
