The end of 2017 will always be remembered as when the #MeToo movement took off. Ever since Harvey Weinstein was exposed as being a sexual predator and harasser, countless other women and men have come forward about their abuse from powerful men in their field.
Supposedly presenters and nominees are part of the group who will be wearing black. So expect big-name stars to be part of this protest.
There is a reason why TIME’s Person Of The Year was the #MeToo movement. So many elite men have fallen from grace like Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Louis CK, Ed Westwick, James Toback and Russell Simmons just to name a few.
This isn’t the first time actors have worn something in protest or solidarity on the red carpet. Last year many celebrities donned blue ribbons for the ACLU at the Oscars.
Clearly many women and men in the industry have been affected by sexual harassment and assault, so the all black protest may seep into other upcoming award ceremonies. The Golden Globes air January 7, 2018.
