Many Hollywood celebrities wore orange American flag lapel pins and ribbons during the 90th annual Academy Awards on Sunday. However, the pins and ribbons have nothing to do with being patriotic.

No, it was a political statement to show support for the gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety.

Yeah, the group that wants to take away your guns.

“Actors and allies” were given orange American flag pins and ribbons to wear to the 90th annual Academy Awards.

“These orange pins and ribbons are worn in honor of the 96 Americans who are killed every day by gun violence and the hundreds more who are wounded — and to demand action,” Everytown for Gun Safety told Fox News in a statement via email.

The call for stronger gun control comes just weeks after 17 students and staff members were killed in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

“They’re a reminder that there is more we all can and should do now to prevent future acts of gun violence,” the group added.

Organizers said they chose the color orange in memory of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed on a playground in Chicago just one week after marching in former President Barack Obama’s second inaugural parade.

“Soon after this tragedy, Hadiya’s childhood friends decided to commemorate her life by wearing orange,” Everytown said. “They chose the color because hunters wear orange in the woods to protect themselves and others.”

By the way, the politically charged 2018 Academy Awards were down 15.6 percent on Sunday night compared to the 2017 viewership with an 18.9 rating in Nielsen’s overnight numbers from 8-11 p.m., according to industry reports.

Also, the anti-gun celebrities were protected by at least 500 body guards and others with guns.

F these liberal a-holes.
