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 (opens in new tab) reports.

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

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.
