Kerry Washington Makes Political Statement on the SAG Awards 2017 Red Carpet

Kerry Washington made a small but powerful statement of solidarity at the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday (January 29) in Los Angeles.

The Scandal actress pinned a safety pin to the sleeve of her gown to protest Donald Trump’s swift action against immigrants immediately after he took office.

The safety pin, which symbolizes solidarity with marginalized groups, became an important political statement inspired by Brexit.

“I’ll be wearing one of these tonight. On my arm. To show solidarity. We will not stop fighting for our safety & the safety of our fellow citizens and human beings. #NoBanNoWall #safetypin” Kerry shared before she hit the red carpet.

Kerry was nominated for Outstanding Peformance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for her role in Confirmation, but the award went to Sarah Paulson for her turn in The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

FYI: Kerry is wearing Cavalli Couture white off-the-shoulder long bell-sleeved gown, with allover tonal crystal, pearl and sequin embroidery, in a leopard motif. She finished her look with Stuart Weitzman shoes and Neil Lane jewelry.

    Or she could have joined the protests instead of getting all dolled up for a stupid award show. These Hollywood stars are hypocrites. They are partly responsible for why people elected Trump.

    How? Most of them didn’t support him. It was the American public’s obsession with Hollywood that helped him get elected. The actors don’t force anyone.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    She could have really helped those refugees by going out there and fighting for their rights.
    Instead, she chose to go to an award show wearing a very expensive designer gown and thinks wearing a stupid pin somehow means she is doing something about whats going on.
    The avg citizen does not like it when a Hollywood stars starts preaching about who they should vote for. Alot of Hollywood stars fawned over Obama and Clinton, and the public did not like it one bit. Obama and Clinton chose to have them at the WH, throw fancy parties with them, and forget about the common person.
    Trump unfortunately spoke to the forgotten people and connect with them.
