This Couple’s SAG Awards Garb Was a Protest of President Trump’s Immigration Orders
While everyone looked stunning on tonight’s SAG Awards red carpet, The Big Bang Theory actor Simon Helberg and his wife Jocelyn Towne seemed to be less concerned about the designers they were wearing and more concerned about the statement they were making.
On the heels of President Trump’s executive orders for a seven-nation immigration ban (which currently includes extreme vetting for even legal, green-card holders) and indefinite suspension of Syrian refugees, the couple followed the lead of others speaking out around the world (Kim K. and celeb co. included) by adding some very note-worthy accessories to their ensembles.
Simon, otherwise clad in a green velvet tuxedo, carried a sign that very clearly read “Refugees welcome,” while Jocelyn scrawled a simple message across her chest: “Let them in.”
It was a bold and powerful move that would prove to be just the beginning of an evening which, so far, has remained largely politically charged.
Stay tuned for more…
