Selena, who attended the red carpet premiere of her upcoming second season of the mystery comedy series Only Murders in the Building, took a moment during the event to speak out against the Supreme Court's recent decision. Selena told Variety, "It's about voting. It's about getting men - men needing to stand up and also speak against this issue." "It's also the amount of women that are hurting. I'm just not happy and I hope that we can do everything in our power to do something to change that", she added.

Earlier, Gomez had written on her Twitter, "Watching a Constitutional right be stripped away is horrific. A woman should have the right to CHOOSE what she wants to do with her own body. End of story."
