15 Of The Most Offensive Moments From The 2017 Golden Globes

I tend to have a love/hate relationship with award shows. I do LOVE to watch them in order to see how good my fave stars look on the red carpet (did anyone see Lilly Collins last night?!), but I hate to see how offensive Hollywood can get. For one, everyone can be incredibly sexist on the red carpet. I don’t know WHY, but for some reason reporters love to ask the men questions about their career, and love to ask women about their outfits and family. It’s annoying AF, and it’s just the beginning.

It sucks that celebrities are offensive, because they often just get away with it. When I say offensive, I don’t just mean they say something stupid. I mean they say or do something that is harmful towards a group of people: whether it be women, people of color, or sexual assault victims. And it just so happens that all of these people were targeted at the 2017 Golden Globes. Even if it wasn’t intentional, a lot of people messed up and did dumb things on national television, which is cringeworthy at best and infuriating at worst. I could go on for hours about this, but right now, I’m going to show you the most offensive moments from the 2017 Golden Globes, so that you, too, can get angry about the fact that celebs can get away with this stuff.
1. Mel Gibson’s movie being nominated, proving that you can be racist and sexist, and STILL be honored by Hollywood:

 

2. Same goes for Casey Affleck, who has been accused of sexual assault multiple times, but still won best actor:


3.The movies Hidden Figures and Fences being mixed up on more than one occasion, which are two important movies that feature all-black cast members People were mixing up the two, causing outrage among POC:

 

4. Which just goes to show that Hollywood gets confused when there are not one but two movies with a cast made up of not all white people:

 

5. When Nicole Kidman’s husband was asked if he gets the “final approval” of Nicole’s dress, since women only dress for men, apparently.

 

6. Sofia Vergara having to make jokes about her accent, because people from other countries are funny, right? Nope.

 

7. When everyone congratulated Evan Rachel Wood for looking FAB in a suit…but then ignored other black women who did the same:

 

8. When English actress Lola Kirke didn’t feel like shaving her armpits…and everyone got unnecessarily angry about it:

 

9. Goldie Hawn pretending she can’t read the telepromter, which was just awkward AF, and showed how Hollywood makes fun of older celebs:

 

10. BEARDS. EVERYWHERE. WHY!

 

11. Jimmy Fallon making Trump jokes, which he shouldn’t be doing since he was the one who humanize Donald Trump so much that he actually got elected as president:

 

12. When The Golden Globes opening sequence gave us all FALSE HOPE that Barb was still alive:

 

13. Seriously, they just kept playing with out Barb emotions. It wasn’t really offensive, but come on:

 

14. When Meryl Streep unknowingly offended MMA fighters all over the world:

 

15. Tom Hiddleston’s entire speech, which was basically just him congratulating himself for making a movie in South Africa:
