Posted on 01/08/2018 2:40:59 AM PST by SkyPilot
As expected, stars of film and television blacked out the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday.
Women and men across the industry wore black in support of the #MeToo movement and gender equality in light of the recent wave of Hollywood sexual harassment allegations. Many on the carpet also wore pins supporting Times Up, an initiative recently founded by 300 prominent women in entertainment to fight harassment and abuse in the workplace. The group, led by stars like Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington and America Ferrera, was the one to organize the all-black carpet and took the message to social media with #WhyWeWearBlack.
Red carpet reporters made an effort to prioritize asking about the #metoo movement rather than the typical Who are you wearing? Stars were vocal about their reasons for wearing black to the awards show and what the movement meant to them. Emma Watson told Variety of her experiences with harassment, saying that I have experienced the full spectrum, but I think for me whats amazing is my experience is not unique, the experience of my friends is not unique, the experience of my colleague is not unique, this issue is so systemic, so structural.
The Beauty and the Beast star, who brought womens activist Marai Larasi as her date to the ceremony, said the movement made her very emotional and added, You realize if you speak to most women, they have an experience, they have a story, and were just scratching the surface of this which is really crazy.

But spoiled, rich, narcissistic Hollywood liberals being spoiled, rich, narcissistic Hollywood liberals - they always find ways to overplay their hand. This display last night at the Golden Globes was pathetic.
Yet another "ME!" hashtag movement, yet another "Blame Trump" political hissy fit (they want Oparah to run for President).
Dear Hollywood: clean up your own dog feces on your own lawn before you talk to me about anything.
You all KNEW that liberals and Hillary financiers like Weinstein were harrassing women for DECADES, and did nothing about it.
Their latest political stunt last night has sucked all of the oxygen out of their own attempts at sympathy.
Oh, and Emma Watson, your “date” last night (womens activist Marai Larasi) needs some dental work. I am sure you have million in the bank to help her out.
These people are beyond nauseating. How anyone takes them seriously, I will never know.
Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot
Margot Robbie - cleavage is in, even when we are protesting treating women as sex objects
Overall, I knew very few of the people pictured. The good news? The dresses were mostly far more tasteful than usual.
If “Black Labs Matter”was “racist”, why isnt “Black Out”?
And I suppose they now think they have done their part and everything is better, because they wore a pin?
Is that who that is? She could eat corn on the cob through a picket fence.
Wonder how many of these women owe their big chance and stardom to the casting room couch. A bunch !
Women will always be women and men will always be men ... it’s the code of the planet ...
These women, and their ranting and raving, is SO far removed from the reality of my life. I wonder if they even consider that ....I don’t see their movies, I don’t even know who they are in many cases ....
Sexual harassment — didn’t we handle that way back in the early 90’s?
All this drama about the Golden Globs validates my decision to totally get rid of cable TV. What little viewing I do is a lot more intentional via streaming content.
If you ever saw Rush Limbaugh’s TV show, used to wear a whole collection of ribbons as a tongue-in-cheek version of “I’m more considerate than any of you”.
How rich, so called Hollywood female “stars” come to the red carpet dressed like a hooker with boobs hanging out and no underwear and then we are supposed to be sympathetic to their ridiculous accusations of sexual harassment. Bwahahaha
Heres my theory. Big perverted Hollywood producers leave hollyweird and look for a cheap location to make movies out of the Union system and drop all the current crop of stars for new unknowns.
The men of Hollywood, the elite of Hollywood are perverts and sleaze, and the movies they churn out are porn. The actresses simulate sex and act like whores, and then they are surprised when the perverted, demonic men treat them like whores. How could anybody get shocked. If you are a man or woman, boy or girl, and you go to Hollywood, you gonna get raped. No sympathy for these attention-starved freaks. None of them.
The diabetic kid from Flin Flon that nobody wanted to draft ... except the Flyers. The rest is history.
You are correct. They all knew about this sexual harassment. The "casting couch" has been a Hollywood metaphor for DECADES. This sudden desire to be ethical is a publicity stunt.
Hollyweird let me tell you: the show isn't convincing. The more you posture and make yourselves out to be the ones to judge, the less believable.
For a few years it was all "Global Warming" hype. But you all are still burning up lots and lots of carbon. Same thing with this sexual harassment stuff. Same thing.
Nothing shows heartfelt solidarity with women abused as sex objects like
a $20,000 custom gown that barely keeps your girls from flopping out.
The virtue-signalers need to start naming names or shut the f___ up!
Ordinary people are just as fascinating and we don’t need stars
Was Harvey there?
