Even though she wasn’t able to be one of the celebrities marching in favor of stricter gun legislation at March for Our Lives yesterday, Millie Bobby Brown found another amazing way to show her support.
On the red carpet at last night’s Kids’ Choice Awards, the 14-year-old Stranger Things star went the Canadian tuxedo route via a Calvin Klein denim-on-denim outfit. Aside from managing to nail a look that can be tricky to pull off, her denim button-down featured a truly amazing detail: the words “Never Again” just above the front pocket and all 17 names of the students and teachers killed in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School down the back.
Thank you to all the fans who voted for me and for Stranger Things at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards today. A big also to my friends at Calvin Klein for being such a champion of important causes and efforts to create positivity in this world. @emmazelaznog @cameron_kasky @davidmileshogg @alexanderblakewind @jackiecorin @nickelodeon @marchforourlives #kca #marchforourlives #neveragain
“Thank you to all the fans who voted for me and for Stranger Things at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards today,” she captioned an Instagram photo of her red carpet look. “A big also to my friends at Calvin Klein for being such a champion of important causes and efforts to create positivity in this world.”
MBB didn’t stop there, either. When accepting her award for Favorite TV Actress, Brown used her speech to voice her support for those participating in the marches that took place worldwide yesterday.
“The March For Our Lives demonstrations that took place all over the world today have inspired me and impacted us all in one way or another,” she said. “I’m fortunate to be here tonight receiving an award as an actor. I’m so very grateful and I appreciate the love and support of my fans and the opportunity that our show Stranger Things has created for me. But, more than anything, I get to be up here and I’m privileged to have a voice that can be heard, one I can use to hopefully make a positive difference and help influence change.”
Multiple other celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and Demi Lovato made appearances at marches across the country to show their solidarity. It’s amazing to see so many celebrities using their platforms to speak out — and hopefully they’ll continue to do so until real change is enacted.
