Even if actress Priyanka Chopra was not at the 75th Golden Globe Awards, it didn't stop her from lending support to the Time's Up campaign by sporting an all-black ensemble.
The actress took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself in an all-black ensemble — much like what was flaunted by Hollywood's actresses and actors at the awards night on Sunday, 7 January, in Los Angeles.
Chopra captioned the image as, "Today we wear black. Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you're doing... join us. Time's Up. Why we wear black."
The Golden Globe Awards event saw most celebrities in black ensembles, signifying a silent protest against the spate of sexual harassment scandals that have rocked Hollywood. Putting out the message louder were black-and-white 'Time's Up' pins.
The colour black was chosen as a way for the movie and TV industry to make a statement against a pervasive culture of misconduct.
The Time's Up campaign is a coalition of 300 Hollywood actresses, female directors, producers, writers, agents and entertainment executives, who have also established a $13 million (Rs1.3 crore, approximately) legal defence fund to provide support for women and men who have experienced sexual harassment or abuse at workplace.
