At his Madison Square Garden concert on Saturday, Marc Anthony railed hard against Donald Trump. Anthony told the crowd he was proud to be Puerto Rican, but that he was also proud to have something in common from people from other Latin American countries.
“No matter where you come from, we’re Latinos,” he said. “And we have to take care of each other no matter where we come from… We have to take care of each other because there’s this crazy movement coming from some [gestures], so without getting all crazy and shit, what I want to say before I leave is, I want to say two things: Fuck Donald Trump, and I want him to hear it in his house, wake that motherfucker up.”
It wasn’t just Iñárritu who used his platform to speak out on Trump. Also on Saturday, Alejandro González Iñárritu won the top prize for the second year in a row at the Directors Guild Award. When Iñárritu went up to accept his award for The Revenant, he slammed presidential candidate Donald Trump for his bigoted views on the Mexican immigrant community.
“When I went as a nominee back there, there was more than 120 Mexicans in the kitchen that serve you hot food, and that was the best party I had,” he said, according to Vulture. “Viva Mexico! That’s not the people Donald Trump has described at all, let me tell you.”

It’s not the first time Iñárritu has criticized Trump. When he received an award by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, he spoke about DREAMers and alluded that Trump was a threat. “Unfortunately, there are currently people proposing we build walls, instead of bridges,” he said. “I must confess that I debated with myself, if I should bring up this uncomfortable subject tonight. But in light of the constant and relentless xenophobic comments that have been expressed recently against my Mexican fellows, it is inevitable.”
