Kesha is supporting former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, who was mentioned in last Monday’s presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, with an Instagram post that takes aim at the Republican candidate.

During the debate, Clinton claimed Trump “called this woman Miss Piggy, then he called her Miss Housekeeping because she’s Latina,” after Machado was crowned Miss Universe in 1996 and subsequently gained weight. Since then, Machado has been rallied around by the anti-Trump faction of the world, including Kesha, who posted this on Wednesday night:

“Your body is NO ONE else's business,” Kesha writes. “Donald Trump said that your body or weight was an issue (which makes me so sad and just sick). but, I find the real problem here being his bloated, arrogant ego and offensive, racist, misogynist verbal diarrhea. he is a bully.”

Trump has defended his comments about Machado since the debate, while several celebrities bashed his debate performance on Monday. Kesha is still embroiled in a legal battle with Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald.
