Katy Perry, Jessica Chastain and Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are among those not so eager to celebrate their country’s independence this year now that the right to choose was stripped away for millions of women.

Many stars have taken to social media to effectively ‘cancel’ Fourth of July ‘due to a shortage of independence’ in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Since SCOTUS reversed the ruling guaranteeing the right to an abortion, many celebrities have slammed the Supreme Court, speaking out on social media about the topic.

Perry, whose song Firework is an unofficial anthem of Independence Day, made her critique of women’s rights in America using a new viral meme.

‘Baby you’re a firework’ is a 10 but women in the US have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh,’ Perry penned on social media.

Both Kim and Kourtney shared the same meme on their Instagram Stories, which read: ‘4th of July has been cancelled due to a shortage of independence. Sincerely, Women.’

Jessica Chastain, meanwhile, let her fingers do the talking in her Instagram selfie flipping off the camera with two hands.

Lisa Rinna – who did celebrate the holiday with a dazzling red, white and blue bikini snap – reminded her followers: ‘While you are in between cocktails and hot dogs celebrating the 4th don’t forget Roe V Wade was overturned. Here’s why. #janeelliott Don’t let them take away ALL OF OUR RIGHTS.’

She added a video of iconic diversity expert and educator Jane Elliot.

Padma Lakshmi, a longtime vocal supporter of women’s reproductive rights, baked a cake with a powerful message.

On her red, white and blue confection, she wrote in icing: ‘separate church & state’

In her caption the Top Chef host penned: ‘Not much to celebrate this 4th, I’m afraid. Let’s just hope everyone can keep safe and peaceful today and that soon our nation veers away from this precipice. 

‘No matter what, we’ll keep fighting for the day where all humans have the same rights, at least of their own person and body, have privacy to make their own choices and to love whom they love and live in peace. #notahappy4th #fruitfromthegarden’

New Girl actress, Zooey Deschanel, also jumped in and shared a post on Twitter during the holiday wearing a T-shirt with, ‘Pro Roe 1973,’ printed on the front. 

That was the year the Roe v. Wade decision was ruled by the U.S. Supreme Court that a woman’s right to an abortion is protected by the Constitution. 

The star wrote out, ‘For when you want to wish America a happy birthday, but also want her to do better.’ 

The star also quoted former justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ‘The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself.’

Paris Jackson took to her Instagram to wish everyone a ‘Happy Genocide Day aka Independence Day’ with a video of herself talking directly at the camera as she sat in her living room.

She went on to point out this day ‘certainly’ does not represent one of independence for any indigenous people or ‘anyone with a uterus for that matter, shoutout to the Supreme Court.’

The singer concluded her recording by encouraging anyone partying or setting things on fire to stay safe.

Leslie Jones admitted that she would wish her followers a Happy Fourth of July but with women’s rights getting stripped she said it wasn’t really a ‘happy’ holiday. 

‘Fourth of July is suppose to stand for independence and how our country fought for freedom… but this ain’t the land of the free,’ the star said in a video posted to her Instagram account. ‘Y’all have taken away women’s right. Your trying to take away voter’s rights. You’re not representing anything that this holidaiy is suppose to be about.’

The comedian captioned the recording: ‘I said what I said… #happybacktoslaveryday.’ 

Meanwhile, Peta Murgatroyd said she didn’t ‘feel right posting something super happy today after hearing the news of another shooting.’

The A-listers were alluding to the U.S. Supreme Court reversal of Roe v. Wade last month, which Kourtney previously slammed for allowing guns to have ‘more rights than women.’ 

The Supreme Court overruled the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision in June by upholding Mississippi’s restrictive 15-week abortion ban.

‘The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,’ the decision said.

Dozens of celebrities spoke out to share their horror over the decision, including Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Busy Philipps, Bette Midler, Hailey Bieber, and Sophie Turner – with many of them choosing to share Michelle Obama’s statement as well as their own thoughts on the issue.

58-year-old Obama was one of the first high-profile people to react to the decision.

The former First Lady described herself as ‘heartbroken’ while blasting the Supreme Court for ridding women of their ‘fundamental right to make informed decisions about their own bodies’.

‘I am heartbroken that we may now be destined to learn the painful lessons of a time before Roe was made law of the land – a time when women risked losing their lives getting illegal abortions,’ she wrote.

‘A time when the government denied women control over their reproductive functions, forced them to move forward with pregnancies they didn’t want, and then abandoned them once their babies were born.’ 

Refusing to stay silent: Dozens of celebrities spoke out to share their horror over the decision, including Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Busy Philipps, Bette Midler, Hailey Bieber, and Sophie Turner - with many of them choosing to share Michelle Obama's statement as well as their own thoughts on the issue

Amy Schumer, 41, accused the Supreme Court of determining women’s rights by following the ‘intentions of a bunch of slave-owning rapists who’ve been dead for hundreds of years’.

She then appeared to take aim at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who in 2018 and 2019 was accused of sexual assault by several women, writing on her Instagram Stories: ‘And women’s bodily autonomy should not be determined by men who’ve been accused of sexual assault.’

Both Obama and Schumer then urged pro-choice supporters to take action by fighting back against the decision, with former President Barack Obama’s wife urging her followers to ‘channel their frustration and anger into action’ by supporting organizations like Planned Parenthood and The United State of Women.

Taylor Swift, 32, said the move has left her ‘terrified’ about the state of the country, while Hailey Bieber, 25, described the landmark decision as ‘really really scary’.
