The city of Minneapolis blocked an anti-Donald Trump poem, A Prayer for P*ssies, by acclaimed black artist Junauada Petrus saying that it is inappropriate for display as part of a public art exhibit.
The poem was written in response to Trump’s vulgar remarks heard in a leaked 2005 Access Hollywood videotape, in which he bragged about sexually assaulting women, saying you “grab them by the p*ssy.”
Petrus told the Star-Tribune the poem was meant to be a celebration of the female body and in defiance of Trump’s comments. City officials say that it is inappropriate because it contains two references to female genitalia.
“If he can feel bold to not only say the word ‘p*ssy,’ but make it a philosophy to grab for women, I can fricking write a poem that is adding sacredness and having love around the idea of praying for p*ssies,” Petrus told the newspaper.
She added, “It really is a kick in the gut and the womb to have somebody who has this attitude towards women holding the highest office.”
