#MeToo Movement: Making a Difference & Making Others Sick

Celebrities used Sunday evening’s Grammys stage for more than just accepting awards. Some of the top names in the music industry took to the stage to make their stance on the latest sexual assault awareness movement, #MeToo, clear.

Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Smith, SZA and many more were spotted on the red carpet rocking a white rose to symbolize peace, sympathy and resistance for sexual assault victims. Singer and sexual abuse survivor, Ke$ha, brought the audience to tears with her moving performance of her single “Praying.” The pop star was joined on stage by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Julia Michaels and Bebe Rexha and the Resistance Revival Chorus.

While most are relieved that sexual assault victims are gathering the courage to finally speak out, talk show host Wendy Williams says she’s “sick of” the movement. Her comment comes after the recent #MuteRKelly Campaign, a protest aimed to bump and grind the R&B legend’s hits off the charts for good due to his many sexual assault accusations. The most recent scandal claimed that the Pied Piper was the ringleader of a sex cult. She defended the singer saying that the hashtag is not only “ten years too late,” but also that his involvement with younger women should not be placed in the #MeToo category because the relationships were consensual. Though viewers gave Williams major twitlash, it doesn’t look like the pop culture queen will be apologizing any time soon for her opinion on this hot topic.
