Stars to wear anti-gun-violence pins at Oscars, sources say

Hollywood sources in the know have revealed to THR that Michael Bloomberg’s New York-based gun control advocacy group Everytown For Gun Safety has created anti-gun violence pins for celebrities to wear to the Oscars on Sunday. 

Since the Parkland, Florida high school massacre that left 17 dead last month, thousands of young people have called upon the organization to support their efforts to advocate for more stringent gun control laws and other public safety issues.

According to one celeb fashion stylist, the pins have been sent to The Wall Group and other key Hollywood agencies to dole out prior to the red carpet.

We are guessing that the pins will display  #NeverAgain, the rallying slogan for the movement.  Everytown For Gun Safety has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter‘s request for confirmation. 

Time’s Up pins, which were first worn at the Golden Globes in January, are also expected to be worn on the red carpet in support of the legal defense fund which assists women fighting sexual harassment. 

Earlier this week, Gucci announced that it would join Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw in contributing $ 500,000 to support the “March For Our Lives” anti-gun violence rally to be held in Washington on March 24.

While it’s not uncommon for celebrities to wear pins supporting organizations like the ACLU, Planned Parenthood or GLAAD (especially following the 2016 election and Trump’s subsequent immigration ban), the buzz about not only gun violence and sexual harassment, but equal pay and other gendered issues, are bound to make this year’s red carpet especially political. In 2018, it’s not enough to sport an itty bitty ribbon. 

Some celebrities – notably Jennifer Lawrence — have admitted that they are unsure about whether or not they will speak to E! red carpet host Ryan Seacrest following the sexual misconduct allegations against him by a former stylist. At the Golden Globes, celebrities like Deborah Messing and Eva Longoria also called out the network — while on air with E! host Guiliana Rancic — for not paying former E! host Catt Sadler as much as her male co-host, Jason Kennedy. (Sadler resigned at the end of last year after she learned about the pay gap.) 

Also at the Golden Globes, several stars swapped their significant others for women’s rights and LGBTQ advocates who used their turn on the red carpet to speak about the causes they represented. Time will tell if A-listers will be escorted by anti-gun-violence activists or women’s rights activists on the Oscars red carpet as well.
