Liberal Hollywood elite are not known for their subtlety, and apparently the Oscars is a perfect time to continue pushing the #MeToo movement. This time, they’re giving gift bags featuring anti-rape kits with pepper spray and body alarms.
In a press release, the security systems company Sabre said that they planned to “help others by inspiring self-empowerment,” and as such would be handing out items including a keychain pepper spray, gel pepper spray, personal body alarms, as well as a testing kit that determines whether a drink has been drugged.
“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,” said Sabre CEO David Nance.
Nominees will also receive a lightweight branded pepper spray called PepperFace, whose CEO claimed their product would serve as an “awareness symbol” in the fight against sexual violence.
Over 120 individuals across Hollywood stand accused of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to rape in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal, including major figures such as Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, and Bill Cosby.
