Salma Hayek is protesting Donald Trump by not mentioning his name at all.

On the the red carpet for her new film Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, she was asked about Trump’s recent racist comments about Mexican immigrants and according to E! News, she was pretty clear on her position.

“I’m aware that he would say anything to attract attention and create the publicity around him,” she said. “If something generates publicity, I would never be surprised about anything he does. I’d be surprised if he did something courageous and meaningful that nobody found out about. This was not courageous and meaningful.”

“Things that he said…I don’t repeat and I don’t say his name because I don’t want to give him extra publicity,” she added.

Trump, who the New York Times once described as having “dazzling white teeth,” is unfortunately using those choppers to talk somewhere in America right now.
