The first award of the MTV Video Music Awards was best pop video, but Paris Jackson used her stage to address a more important topic on Sunday night.

Michael Jackson’s daughter addressed the crowd’s “potential power,” saying we must all come together to show “these Nazi white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country that as a nation with liberty as our slogan, we have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred, and their discrimination.”

She also got a yuge Trump jab in there, and a joke about fake news. Jackson did something similar at the Grammys, speaking out about the Dakota Access Pipeline before introducing Daft Punk and the Weeknd.
