Celebrities March

Individuals in all areas came together in large numbers to march against the newly elected president of the United States, Donald Trump. The Women's Marches are said to be the largest demonstration in U.S. history, and they included a wide variety of supporters.

Sifting through a portion of the media coverage from the marches was difficult considering the amount of information out there to use. I had noticed throughout the duration of the marches that there was a significant amount of coverage on the celebrities that were not only attending the marches, but speaking and making their presence and opinions known. I wanted to search past their own social media pages and see how the mainstream media news outlets covered their appearances.

Fox News listed certain celebrities that spoke and included their speeches throughout the story. Celebrities like Chelsea Handler, Shia Labeouf and Stephen Baldwin's take on the presidential candidate was the main focus on this particular article. For the most part, pretty basic. On the other hand, CNN touched base on this topic and had a bit more to say. Above the text, a video was included of reporters discussing their views on this topic. Among their own views, they included President Trump's views on the rallies and celebrity attendance.

"Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly."

In addition to celebrities attendance rates throughout the rallies, I was also unaware up until researching the topic that these marches took place all around the world. New York Times included pictures of marches happening in Peru, Australia, London, Kenya, Mexico and countless areas all around the world. It was refreshing to see that unity worldwide.
