Page appeared on the show to promote her upcoming Netflix role in The Umbrella Academy, based on comics by Gerard Way.

However, she apologized for being “fired up” and went in on the Trump administration’s role in the rise in hate crimes against marginalized groups, especially those who identify as LGBTQ+.

“It’s impossible for me not to be fired up right now with the president and vice president Mike Pence, who like wishes I couldn’t be married,” Page said. “He believes in conversion therapy. He has hurt LGBTQ people so badly as the governor of Indiana.”

She also went into the recent racist and homophobic attack against Empire star Jussie Smollett.

“Connect the dots. This is what happens. If you are in a position of power and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them. … You spend your career trying to cause suffering. What do you think is going to happen?” Page said.  “Kids are going to be abused and they’re going to kill themselves. And people are going to be beaten on the street.”

“I have traveled the world and I have met the most marginalized people you can meet. I am lucky to have this time and the privilege to say this. This needs to fucking stop,” she said. Page was met with overwhelming applause.

The Umbrella Academy Twitter page referred to the actress as a “hero” and saying that her speech is their “new favorite song.”
