On March 31, celebrities like Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, and Tina Fey united for a Facebook Live telethon fundraiser for the American Civil Liberties Union. During the four-hour fundraiser, Fey sat down for an interview with Donna Lieberman, executive director of the ACLU in New York, and Louise Melling, deputy legal director of the ACLU, The Washington Post reports.

During the interview, Fey had some choice words for white women who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election:

"A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV, and I would want to urge them to, like — you can't look away. 'Cause it doesn't affect you this minute, but it's gonna effect you eventually.Again, open two windows. Do watch HGTV but… [don't] hide, to not turn our attention away from what is happening."

She didn't just offer criticism though—she also offered a pledge of her own.

"I personally would like to make my own pledge to college-educated white women to not look away, not pretend that things that are happening now won't eventually affect me if we don't put a stop to it," she said.
