Some of the stars in attendance Sunday evening at the 89th Oscars in Hollywood wore blue ribbons on their formal gowns and tuxedos.
The statement was a show of solidarity with the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU issued a message encouraging Oscars attendees to wear the blue ribbons, saying they are "for the rights and civil liberties guaranteed by the Constitution to everyone in the United States."
"I'm wearing an ACLU ribbon because they're fighting incredible fights right now for American ideals." -@lin_manuel #Oscars #Oscars2017 pic.twitter.com/pypW1erdQU
