Blanca Blanco Defends Her Choice to Wear Red Instead of Black to the Golden Globes

The 2018 Golden Globes was a platform for the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up Initiative in support of sexual assault victims, and celebrity attendees wore black to make a statement in favor of the movement to show unity between women in film, television and theater with victims. Blanca Blanco, a Latin actress, decided to make her own statement by showing up in a red hot dress, leaving people to wonder if she was not in support of the movement.

Blanca took to Twitter saying “Red is passionate” to defend her choice, and she received a lot of backlash. Many accused her of disrespecting sexual assault victims and seeking personal publicity.

Blanca also defended her red carpet look in an interview with FOX News. “Wearing red does not mean I am against the movement. I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to break the cycle of abuse through their actions and fashion style choices,” she said. “It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status. I am excited about the #TimesUp movement; true change is long overdue.”

While we’ll leave this debate to Twitter, at least Blanca vaguely gained more publicity for the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up Initiative, which is most important. You can learn more about the Time’s Up Initiative here.
