This year Women's March took place on Saturday, 19 January. As every year now since the day Donald Trump became president of the United States, the march drew thousands of people, protesting for justice and equality. The event was also spread out over several cities in both the US and all over the world.
Bryan Cranston also made an unexpected appearance in support of the crowd in the window of a Broadway theater. I'm pretty sure he was only supposed to appear in the window and wave hello to the protesters. But he literally took the gesture one step further, risking his life and most likely pissing off his entire PR team.
He was surely the funniest and most impressive, but definitely not the only, celebrity who participated in the march this past weekend. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande's and Cardi B's song lyrics became the inspiration for the march posters.
Women's March 2019 is the third annual campaign since it began in Washington DC in 2016.Guacamoley reports.
But in 2019 Women's March is facing a lot of controversy.Fox News says it started when a former leader of the event alleged she had been kicked out for being Jewish.
One of the present leaders of Women's March, Tamika Mallory, has recently been interviewed on The View.Fox News reports. Mallory refused to do so, saying, "That is not my language. It's not the way I speak."
Additionally, Mallory has previously called "the greatest of all time" for his work in black communities.
However, Mallory also stated on The View that "while she does not agree 'with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statements,' she can still appreciate his efforts on behalf of the black community." People says.Mallory told the co-host. "The Women’s March was very difficult. I met with a lot of women who did not even understand why race was [an] important… part of the conversation as it relates to women’s rights issues."
A month before the 2019 march, actresses Alyssa Milano and Debra Messing announced that they wouldn't participate in the march unless its leaders denounced Farrakhan, Fox News says.New York City had two competing marches take place that Saturday: Mallory's Women's March and the Women's March Alliance that condemns anti-Semitism.
People says the original march lost a lot of sponsors after this.Democratic National Committee was no longer on the list of official sponsors after the two leaders appeared on The View.
People tried to contact them for more information but it was refused.Same as with the first two campaigns, the 2019 Women's March in Washington, D.C., was closely observed.
Turns out, this year the march attracted much fewer protesters than before.
Bryan Cranston is best known for his role in Breaking Bad. But he is also concerned with the way that minorities are represented in the popular culture.Sky News says.
Cranston's latest role is a quadriplegic billionaire in the movie The Upside, alongside Kevin Hart, whose character is a recently paroled criminal hired as a carer.
However, he said he was aware of "the need to expand opportunities" and his latest role was a "business decision."
"I think being cast in this role as a quadriplegic really came down to a business decision."
Cranston says his situation is a classic "case of catch-22."
Kevin Hart agreed with Cranston and said the producers were aiming for "box office success," Sky News reports.role started the conversation on the lack of opportunities for minorities and marginalized groups.
Naturally, being concerned with equality and justice for minorities, Cranston appeared in the Women's March to show support for the protesters, Guacamoley reports.
