Dwayne Johnson confirms he will wear all black at 2018 Golden Globes, as part of silent #MeToo protest
Dwayne Johnson has confirmed he will wear all black at the 2018 Golden Globes, as part of a silent protest.
It is thought that many actresses plan to wear black gowns at the annual ceremony in order to protest against the injustices that have played a role in Hollywood for decades, but which in recent months have began to be discussed as part of the ongoing #MeToo movement.
Now, Johnson has confirmed that he ‘will’ be wearing all black as well in solidarity, confirming his outfit choices on an Instagram post by stylist Ilaria Urbinati, whose clients include Rami Malek, Donald Glover, Chris Evans, Bradley Cooper, and Tom Hiddleston.
‘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,’ she wrote.
‘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…’
‘Yes we will,’ replied Johnson.
The protest gained traction in the media earlier in the month when Rose McGowan slammed actresses, including notably Meryl Streep, for the protest, claiming that their silence has long been the problem and that they need to instead speak louder about the problems in the industry.
‘YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy,’ she tweeted.
