Jennifer Lopez and Pink were among the stars who wore black on Sunday (07Jan18) to support the Time’s Up movement despite not attending the Golden Globes.
The majority of actors and actresses walked the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles in black to support the new Time’s Up campaign, which aims to combat gender inequality and sexual harassment.
Ahead of the ceremony, stars such as Reese Witherspoon, Rashida Jones, Kerry Washington, Tracee Ellis Ross and Rosario Dawson posted videos calling on fans to wear black too, and Jennifer and Pink stood in solidarity with the Golden Globes attendees by wearing black elsewhere.
Jennifer was in Puerto Rico with her partner Alex Rodriguez and she wore a black turtleneck and trousers as she gave a press conference about the relief efforts after Hurricane Maria.
“We are humbled and proud to be a part of this effort. Today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles. A lot of women with #TimesUp are standing up for equality, to be treated equally and for sexual harassment,” she said. “I stand here today in black, doing the same from far away. It’s the same thing here in Puerto Rico, we want to be treated equally.”
Pink also showed her support by sharing a picture of her wearing a black hoodie while sat on a motorbike. In the Instagram caption, she wrote, “Today we wear black #timesup” and also shared the campaign’s “Why I Wear Black Today” message.
Amy Schumer also shared the post and uploaded a picture of her wearing a black T-shirt. In the caption, she wrote, “Home sick but proud as hell to wear black in solidarity with my sisters. #timesup #whywewearblack.”
Mark Ruffalo posted a video on social media calling for his fans to join him wearing black. He pointed to his T-shirt and said, “As you can see, I’m wearing black and that’s to support the Time’s Up movement. Today I’m also asking all you guys out there to wear black… to spread the word and support a lot of really wonderful, courageous women who are asking for fairness in the workplace…. It’s been a long time coming, and we’re here and it’s exciting.”
Rose McGowan, who claimed she was raped by Harvey Weinstein, didn’t support the dress code, tweeting to other Weinstein rape accuser Asia Argento about “those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes” and adding, “I have no time for Hollywood fakery.”
