It’s official. The men are going to the Golden Globes wearing black to show solidarity and protest sexual misconduct.
Early in December 2017, the word was that the women of Hollywood are going to wear black to the 2018 Golden Globes to denounce the widespread issue of sexual misconduct. With all the news surrounding the problem last year, statements like #metoo have proliferated and have gained more attention.
Rumors that men would be making a statement by wearing black, too, came up. While there is nothing concrete as to how many will be participating, stylist Ilaria Urbanati says ALL her men will be.
Because everyone keeps asking me… YES, the men WILL be standing in solidarity with women on this wearing-all-black movement to protest against gender inequality at this year’s Golden Globes. At least ALL MY GUYS will be. Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here… just sayin…
And if you look closely at the comments, you’ll see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirming his participation.
Many netizens feel like it’s not enough or that it doesn’t mean anything at all.
Sorry, but do men not normally wear black tuxes to the #GoldenGlobes or am I normally hallucinating? This is a prime example of men doing the literal BARE MINIMUM and expecting a clap on the back. Fuck off and support women where it actually counts. 🙄 https://t.co/27AcS9XQRo

So let me get this straight… The very people who ignored/refused to report sexual harassment and assault while making millions of dollars are going to wear black in solidarity for those victims? Sorry if I don’t find this hypocrisy amusing.
