Every year the nominees for the Oscars get a goodies bag with items donated by various companies that are sometimes worth up to $100,000.
This year, there are items in the goodies bags that every Hollywood actress can use. The usual gifts in the goodies bag include plane tickets, jewelry perfumes and more. This year the goodies bag includes pepper spray (Two varieties) two body alarms and a kit that can test drinks to see if they are spiked.
This would be hilarious if not for the fact that so many actresses have come forward with stories of being sexually assaulted and raped or that their careers were damaged when the refused to play along.
David Nance, the CEO of security systems company Sabre said:
“This event is a unique opportunity for us to lend a helping hand in the #MeToo movement with solutions that take aim at the harassment culture that’s been pervasive most notably in the entertainment industry and in broader society.”
“We hope to help others by inspiring self-empowerment.”
As well as the items from Sabre, there’s also another branded lightweight pepper spray called Pepperface.
“In the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, PepperFace is arriving in Hollywood at the perfect time.” said the company’s CEO Brian Pennington.
“We want to be an awareness symbol to help end violence against women and also provide resources for those unfortunate enough to have become a victim of violence.”
Other items in this year’s offering include a 12-day trip to Tanzania, a ’24 karat gold facial’, and a ‘conflict-free’ diamond necklace.
This is the first Oscar ceremony since the Weinstein story broke. Besides the obvious rise of the #MeToo movement, the Oscars are asking actors and actresses to knock off their political hatred, especially since most of them are totally clueless and it causes people not to watch. I’m willing to bet it will make no difference and their anti-American rhetoric galvanizes the Trump base.
It’s funny when you think about it. They all accuse Trump of racism without any proof but they supported Hillary Clinton who has a history of making racist remarks. They also accuse Trump of using his office to make money.
(He isn’t) But they supported Hillary with her long history of selling her office for large sums of money.
Anyway, I won’t worry about it because I won’t be watching anyway.
