CELEBS SOUND OFF: A-List Actors Target Police, Derek Chauvin at Scaled-Down Academy Awards

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.26.21

Celebrities spent much of their three-hour Oscars broadcast targeting police and social issues Sunday night, blasting law enforcement officials for “brutality” and other hot-button issues during acceptance speeches at the 93rd Academy Awards.

“I have to be honest if things had gone differently this week in Minneapolis, I would have traded in my heels for marching boots,” said ‘One Night in Miami’ director Regina King just moments into the show.

“And yes, we’re doing it maskless,” King declared. “Well, think of this as a movie set, an Oscars movie with a cast of over 200 nominees. People have been vaxxed, tested, retested, social distanced and we are following all of the rigorous protocols that got us back to work safely. So, just like as a movie set masks off and when we’re not rolling, masks on. Ok, that’s how we do it.”

 

“Today the police will kill three people and tomorrow the police will kill three people, and the day after that the police will kill three people because on average the police in America every day kill three people,” said another nominee.
