In an accurate portrayal of the collective frustrations over President Donald Trump’s election, comedian and activist Kerry Coddett created an anti-Trump PSA in a parody of The Weeknd’s hit song “Starboy.”
“Starboy: The PSA” is a response to the president’s hateful rhetoric. The timely track begins by citing the 900 hate crimes that took place throughout a period of ten days following President Trump’s election and features a voice for everyone who’s feels threatened by President Trump’s political reign.
“This song is about loving the skin you’re in, no matter who tells you otherwise,” Coddett said in the song’s press release. “This is a clapback track; a song that articulates my grievances and communicates the ideas I wish I could express to the people who really need to hear them.”
Lyrics in the song include lines like, “I’ma marry whoever wanna marry me/ Wear a scarf on my head if I please” and “Hate my color? Miss me with your shade.”
And, of course, the parody isn’t without a direct message to America’s new president.
It feels good to know we’re in this fight together!
