“This year marked the 25th anniversary of my rape,” wrote the Being Mary Jane actress, who covered up in a hoodie. “#MeToo. I know I am not alone. Together we can eradicate sexual violence, harassment and abuse. Together we can have true equality. Together we can dismantle white supremacy and racism. Together we can center the voices of the most marginalized among us. Together we can acknowledge the jig is up and its BEEN time for monumental sweeping change. #TimesUpNow.” (Photo: Gabrielle Union via Instagram)

It was all black everything for celebrities at Sunday’s 2018 Golden Globes, in protest of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and in support of Time’s Up. Attendees from Emma Watson to nominee William H. Macy shared with Yahoo what inspired their decisions to go dark.

But it wasn’t just the show-goers at the high-profile awards event wearing the color and sharing their #WhyWeWearBlack stories. Stars who watched the Globes being handed out from home, at viewing parties, or even from their sickbeds (get well soon, Anne Hathaway and Amy Schumer!) showed solidarity for the mission by posting photos of their black on social media — and saying why they wore it.
