Last night as the Who’s Who of Hollywood made their way down the red carpet before heading inside to honor themselves at an event that no one watched, there was a noticeable addition to the evening gowns and tuxes – a small orange pin.
As it turns out, the pins constituted Hollywood’s efforts to combat gun violence.
“Remember when Jesus of Nazareth came upon thousands of hungry people, and rather than feeding them, thought and prayed?”
…this time sending out one that says,
“Remember when Jesus of Nazareth came upon thousands of hungry people, and rather than feeding them, put an orange pin on his Giorgio Armani robe?”
By the way, for the record Jesus did in fact pray before feeding the 5,000. Knowing the Bible before tweeting about it helps.
“Whoever says: ‘thoughts and prayers to all the families.’ Get lost. Get off my feed. You are not part of the America we need to strive for.”
…will he dare take on the glitterati he so desperately wants to be a part of by demanding that anyone who wears an orange pin get lost, get off his feed, and recognize that they are not part of the America he wants?
I could be totally wrong, but I’m going to guess that the same rage directed at those who offered condolences and prayers following recent spates of gun violence is not going to be replicated towards those who merely wear pins for awareness.
Any guesses why that might be?
