The Rise singer was greeted with light boos from the crowd after making the remark about her family at Clinton’s election night party at the Javits Center in New York City.
“Tonight my parents voted for Trump, but you know what? We will still all be sitting at the same table for Thanksgiving,” Perry said. “And this is the moment we need to remember: that we all love our parents, and we all love our children. And I can rest easy knowing that both of my young nieces at home will never see themselves less than equal, anything other than equal.”
“So, remember, today is not just a finish line. It also marks the beginning of all the work we must come together to do,” she added. “We need everyone—gay, straight, black, white, brown, spray-tanned, people of faith and people that just love. So let’s sing a song of unity. Let’s be one nation indivisible with a kick-ass president.”
