YOU ALL KNEW, YOU EFFING HYPOCRITES – Black is the new black:
The red carpet will go black at this year’s Golden Globes – and it’s not stopping with the women.
Weeks ago, we learned that many actresses planned to wear black to this year’s ceremony, as a sign of protest against the industry’s sexual abuse epidemic. As it turns out, though, men will be making a statement as well.
Stylist Ilaria Urbinati announced on Instagram (via People) that her male clients – which include Dwayne Johnson, Tom Hiddleston, Armie Hammer, and Garrett Hedlund – will also wear black in solidarity with their female colleagues.
“The industry’s sexual abuse epidemic” is not a surprise to anyone in the industry. Pretty much everyone knew who the rapists, the gropers, and the pervs were all along. There are probably still many more, who also are known to everybody, but have been just plain lucky not to have anyone come forward yet and break the conspiracy of silence. Wear black to mourn your collective gutlessness and hypocrisy, beautiful people of Hollywood. Everyone is a freedom fighter after the war.
But it gets worse:
That being said, lots of male participants may not even notice a difference. The classic black tux has always been a red-carpet staple. Protest or no, it was always a safe bet that tons of dudes would show up in black.
If a man protests on the red carpet, does anyone see it?
