Yara Shahidi Gives Another Powerful Speech, This Time at the GLSEN Awards!

Yara Shahidi Gives Another Powerful Speech, This Time at the GLSEN Awards!

Yara Shahidi keeps blowing away everyone with her wise words and that was just the case at the 2018 GLSEN Respect Awards!

The 18-year-old grown-ish actress gave a speech while accepting the GLSEN Gamechanger Award on Friday night (October 19) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“We should all feel deserved and supported in expressing our right to being our whole selves, limited by nothing regardless of ethnicity, gender identities, sexuality, ability, religion or any other identity that we choose,” Yara said during her speech (via People). “There should be safe spaces in which our presence and existence are inherently valued, but more than that, I believe in promoting equity. It is dangerous to promote an identity by narrative.”

Yara credited her dad Afshin Shahidi for inspiring her activism.

“Thank you to my Papa for sharing with my mama, my brother, my aunties, my uncles, my brother, basically all of us, that a fight to help one person belong is a fight that belongs to all of us,” she said. “I am so grateful to stand amongst you.”

Yara met up with fellow actresses Storm Reid and Kat Graham at the event.

FYI: Yara is wearing a Tory Burch dress. Storm is wearing a Self-Portrait dress.

Amy Schumer Won't Star in Super Bowl Commercials Out of Respect for Colin Kaepernick

Amy Schumer Won't Star in Super Bowl Commercials Out of Respect for Colin Kaepernick

Amy Schumer is doing her part to show support for football player Colin Kaepernick by not participating in any Super Bowl commercials.

The 37-year-old actress previously appeared in a Bud Light commercial for the Super Bowl in 2016.

“Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?” Amy said on her Instagram.

“I think it would be cool if Maroon 5 backed out of super bowl like Rihanna did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got,” Amy continued. “Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color.”

Rihanna reportedly turned down the chance to headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2019 out of respect for Kaepernick, who has been shunned by the NFL after kneeling during the National Anthem.

“And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?” she concluded.
