Jennifer Lopez wore all black while apparently speaking to media in Puerto Rico on Sunday, which she noted was for the #TimesUp movement.
A number of actresses will wear black to the Golden Globes on Sunday evening in solidarity to stand up against sexual harassment and sexual assault and to promote equality.
Although Lopez could not attend the awards show, she wanted fellow actresses to know she stands with them.
"Today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, and a lot of the women, with hashtag Times Up, are standing up for equality — to be treated equally and for sexual harassment," Lopez said in a video posted to social media. "And I stand here in black today doing the same from far away. And it's the same thing here in Puerto Rico — we want to be treated equally."
Three hundred prominent Hollywood women — including Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Judd, America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington, Jill Soloway and Donna Langley — launched the #TimesUp initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in the workplace.
The movement grew out of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which rocked the industry.
