In a report that sounds as if it’s made up, a group of Hollywood snowflakes have joined forces in a video featuring the 1979 Gloria Gaynor hit “I Will Survive.”
…the intended target of the “reimagining” effort being none other than President-elect Donald Trump.

The video, which features A-listers like Matthew McConaughey, Natalie Portman and Taraji P. Henson, was produced by W magazine and the message is clear.
“While the song has long been interpreted through a socially conscious lens, it’s the kind of anthem we need now more than ever with the inauguration bearing down on us,” the magazine explained. “With an impending Donald Trump presidency, I will survive.”
As might be expected — and deserved — the reaction from social media users was intense… here’s a sampling of reactions from Twitter:
@thehill this is getting sad
