Golden Globes 2018: Social media reacts to activism, all-black dress, #TimesUp movement

A overwhelming majority of the celebrities attending the 75th Golden Globe Awards Sunday evening in Beverly Hills wore all black, and it wasn’t only for the style — it was a press release.

Actors and actresses, some carrying “#TimesUp” pins together with their darkish apparel, did so to unfold additional consciousness of the sexual harassment, assault and misconduct in Hollywood that has been reported over the previous few months. That is a part of the Time’s Up marketing campaign, which in keeping with its mission assertion, is a motion for “inclusion of ladies and marginalized individuals” and “fairness and parity throughout all industries.”

Many celebrities took to social media to elucidate their motive for collaborating or to assist others, whereas followers expressed their diverse opinions on the matter as effectively — with some calling the Hollywood protests hypocritical. Try the reactions under.
