Jennifer Lopez couldn’t attend Sunday night’s Golden Globes for a very important reason.
During a press conference on Sunday, Lopez became emotional as she discussed her support for Hollywood’s Time’s Up initiative combatting workplace sexual harassment. Both Lopez and Rodriguez wore black in solidarity with celebrities at the Golden Globes.
“We are humbled and proud to be a part of this effort. You know, today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, and a lot of the women, with Times Up, are standing up for equality, to be treated equally, and for sexual harassment,” Lopez told a cheering crowd. “I stand here in black doing the same from far away.”
“It’s the same with here in Puerto Rico,” she said. “We want to be treated equally.”
