Lady and the Tramp star Janelle Monae blasted the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade during Sunday night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles.

Janelle Monae wished the audience Happy Pride Day and pointed to the LGBTQ representation.

“I’d like to give a special, special shoutout to Black women, to Black queer artists, to Black nonbinary artists,” she said.

“These artists making art on our own terms, owning our truths and expressing ourselves freely and unapologetically in a world that tries to control and police our bodies, my body, and our decisions, my decision.”

“I know we are celebrating us right now, as we should — we absolutely deserve to celebrate especially now," she said.

"We must celebrate our art by protecting our right and our truths.”

Empire actor Taraji P. Henson hosted the ceremony and delivered her take.

After Lizzo opened the show with her single About Damn Time, Henson said:

“It’s about damn time we talk about the fact that guns have more rights than women.”

“It’s a sad day in America,” Henson went on, thanking Lizzo who recently donated $1m in tour proceeds to Planned Parenthood.

“A weapon that can take lives has more power than a woman that can give life – if she chooses to.”

WATCH:

Jazmine Sullivan was announced as the winner and she used the opportunity to ask men to back their women.

“I want to speak directly to the men: We need y’all. We need y’all to stand up, stand up for us, stand up with us,” she said.

Almost every woman who took the stage commented on the issue:

Best New Artist winner Latto said as part of her acceptance speech: “It’s about giving pro-choice… it’s about never giving in to a man policing my body.”

Since the ruling was handed down by the Supreme Court on Friday, several celebrities have attacked the institution.

Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo and Kendrick Lamar referenced the decision during performances at Glastonbury in England, while Kim Kardashian wrote a message on her Instagram story, reading:

“In America guns have more rights than women.”
