Oscar Nominees Protest Donald Trump’s Travel Ban By Wearing Blue Ribbons In Support Of American Civil Liberties




 
 
Celebrities have taken to the Oscars red carpet wearing blue ribbons as they protest Donald Trump’s immigration ban.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss, who is dating the brother of Trump advisor Jared Kushner, was among the several stars to wear the ribbon in support of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Best actress nominee Ruth Negga wore her blue ACLU ribbon pinned to her red Valentino dress as she walked the red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre on Sunday.

Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda and his mother both wore the ribbons, as well as Moonlight director Barry Jenkins.

The blue accessories are in support of the organization’s ‘Stand With ACLU’ campaign, which launched earlier this week.

ACLU called on Oscar nominees and celebrities to stand behind the organization amid Trump’s controversial immigration ban.

Oscar nominee Casey Affleck also wore the ribbon at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday night.

Stylist Karla Welch took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of Negga’s blue ribbon. She captioned the post: ‘The accessory I’m most proud of #ACLU #MegaNegga.’

Welch also works with Karlie Kloss, who also made her support clear by wearing the blue ribbon. The supermodel’s boyfriend Josh Kushner is the brother-in-law of President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump.

Kloss has so far stayed quiet on her boyfriend’s links to the Trump family. Josh, who voted for Hillary Clinton, was spotted attending the Women’s March on Washington last month after his brother was appointed to serve on Trump’s administration.

The supermodel was pictured sitting near Ivanka Trump at the U.S. Open in September prior to the presidential election.

Stars sporting the blue ribbons has become just one element of what is predicted to be a politically charged Oscars ceremony.

Celebrities have been using the spotlight of late to denounce Trump’s hardline stances on immigration, transgender rights and the media.
