Last night I saw so many incredible women say such wonderful things onstage. The #MeToo movement also had almost everyone wearing black to showcase support and solidarity. Actress Blanca Blanco decided to wear red and now receiving a ton of backlash for it. She's definitely explained her self to say that she just "loves red, and in her culture it's a color of celebration". With that said, what do YOU think? Do you think she was in the wrong for not wearing black? She has expressed she is definitely an advocate for the movement. So, in my mind why should the color matter? Others have accused her of wanting media attention hence why she wore the dress and personally I think at this point we're just trying to look at the worst of people. Why not look at the good side and just believe her?

The issue is bigger than my dress color #TIMESUP— Blanca Blanco (@blancablanco) January 8, 2018

You don’t get to blatantly thumb your nose at a movement, then cry “shaming”. That’s not how it works. You clearly were in dire need of attention, you got it. Maybe not the kind you wanted, but you took that gamble.— Allie (@bloggyblog17) January 8, 2018
OF COURSE someone was going to break the dress code. OF course she will be shamed. Of course the shamers will be counter-shamed for their shameful shaming.— LEGOattackHelicopter (@Crawfish4Kraken) January 8, 2018
And in the process everyone will find out what they can about #BlancaBlanco .
Well played Ms Blanco. Well played.
PS, Blanca Blanco is now claiming that "shaming her" for wearing red is "part of the problem." bahahahahah I JUST CAN'T.— Loren Raye (@lorenraye) January 8, 2018
Wearing a color for a night solves nothing and anyone shaming and bullying you clearly is just going along with the wearing black so they don’t stand out - not because it meant anything to them. #BlancaBeautiful— Amanda Lee (@idahoscarlett) January 8, 2018
A whole bunch of women are shaming Blanca Blanco because she didn't wear black to the Golden Globes. Guess what? That's #partoftheproblem too.— Hank Campbell (@HankCampbell) January 8, 2018
Blanca Blanco doesn't necessarily have to conform to the #WhyWeWearBlack dress code, yet to show up in a gown that's not only bright red but extremely skimpy seems like a crass f*ck-you to the whole movement.— Patty Taboada (@pattymanuelle) January 8, 2018
