At last night's Golden Globe awards, both women and men took a stand against sexual harassment and inequality by wearing black instead of the usual bright and embellished dresses. The red carpet was a sea of black – with the exception of three bold women, including Latina actress Blanca Blanco. 

Blanco attended the awards show in a revealing crimson dress.

"I love red," she explained. "Wearing red does not means I am against #TimesUp movement."

"I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to brake [sic] the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice. It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the 'Time's Up' movement because true change is long overdue," she wrote in an exclusive statement to Refinery29.

Blanco wasn't shy about promoting the statement on social media either.

The star's comments immediately began filling with hate and disappointment from women who support the movement.

Twitter couldn't seem to wrap its head around Blanco's fashion choice.

Others defended her, saying that shaming her choice is hypocritical of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives.

Blanco had a series of tweets in response, which only amplified the conversation:

Aside from Blanco, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Meher Tatna, wore red to the show, though she cited her culture as the reason for her fashion choice.

"As part of her Indian culture, it’s customary to wear a festive color during a celebration — in this case being the 75th anniversary," a source explained.

German actress Barbara Meier also chose to not wear black and issued a strong statement.

"We were fighting for a long time for the freedom to wear what it is OK, to dress up a little more sexy," her statement, translated from German to English, read. "If we now restrict this, because some men can not control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion. We should not have to be serious. US women should shine, be colorful and sparkle. Just like it is our nature. In my opinion, this symbolizes our freedom and our new strength."
