Among the other things Hollywood stars and starlets are protesting this year, gun-control is on their top list and are making a fashion statement out of it on the Oscars red carpet.
They plan on wearing orange flag pins to show they believe in gun-control and Everytown for Gun Safety is behind this organized stunt, People Magazine reports.
Yes, these celebs are quite happy to flaunt they are all for placing tighter restrictions on everyone’s second amendment right.
“The move is likely to be popular: A-listers from Tom Hanks to George Clooney have donated to a ‘March for Our Lives’ against gun control, set to take place later this month in Washington, D.C., and stars like Oprah Winfrey have committed to attending the march in solidarity with students from the Parkland, Florida, high school that suffered a mass shooting in February,” reports the Daily Wire.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg founded the Everytown organization and it is quite popular amongst the starlets of Hollywood; Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, and even Kim Kardashian.
Ironically, LAPD and the celebrities’ own armed personnel will be guarding the star studded event. Variety magazine states:
More than 500 officers will be on hand, many of them working overtime, to ensure the safety of the 90th Academy Awards, along with firefighters, police helicopters and agents from the FBI. Private security guards from Security Industry Specialists will work the inside of the theater.
So plebeians, here is the moral of the story: the almighty celebrities want you to sacrifice your right of self-defense for “social justice,” but aren’t going to sacrifice their own security because you know… they’re famous and stuff.
