Producers of the CW show “Legends of Tomorrow” installed a small plaque commemorating President Trump’s infamous remarks about grabbing women “by the p—-” on a wall at the television studio where the comments were made. Fifteen minutes later, the plaque was taken down, but its likeness remains in photos on social media.
The plaque read, “On this spot in September 2005, Donald J. Trump bragged about committing sexual assault. In November 2016, he was elected President of the United States.”
Visual effects artist Phil Klemmer posted a photo of the plaque on his Facebook page with the caption: “In dishonor of our President, the producers of my show have created a plaque commemorating his comments to Billy Bush, which happened on our lot.”
The infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, which was broadcast by The Washington Post just weeks before last year’s presidential election, featured a hot-mic recording from 2005 of then-Apprentice host Donald Trump talking about kissing and fondling women without their consent.
“When you’re a star, they let you do it,” he said.
Earlier this month, on the one-year anniversary of the tape’s release, a women’s advocacy group played it on a 12-hour loop in the vicinity of the White House.
“It was not so-called ‘locker room talk,’ it was a man bragging about sexually assaulting women. That man may now sit in the Oval Office, but we will not let him — or anyone else — forget the tape or those comments,” Ultraviolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas said in a statement before the demonstration.
It took our offices 15 minutes to take down this plaque. The truth remains. pic.twitter.com/Yqwked5ldx
