John Legend Is At Sundance's Women's March, Giving You Another Reason To Love Him
Chelsea Handler's Women’s March on Main is making a splash at the Sundance Film Festival. Despite the freezing cold temperatures, crowds are braving the snow to let those in office know their voices will not be ignored. According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Legend is at Sundance’s Women’s March, along with several other stars.
There's just no way the cold was going to keep Legend away from the march. He is a tireless supporter of human rights who once penned a letter to former President Obama about the mass incarceration of non-violent drug offenders, and got into a Twitter dispute with Donald Trump Jr. In addition to always being on the front lines of a good cause, Legend is an executive producer on WGN America's groundbreaking series Underground, which is what brought him to this year's Sundance Festival in the first place.
The famous singer and husband of Chrissy Teigen is all bundled up, and marching alongside the likes of Handler, Aisha Tyler, and Connie Britton. He even took to Instagram to share a picture of a particularly dramatic sign he spotted in the crowd. "I Can't Believe I Still Have To Protest This F*cking Sh*t," the sign carried by an anonymous, but amazing protester reads.
During the march, Legend carried a Planned Parenthood sign declaring, "We March for Women's Rights." As a husband to Teigen, who is just as fiercely passionate about equality as Legend is, and the father of his adorable daughter Luna, Legend understands why it is so important to stand with women as they fight for equality. Seeing him show up and join in the march Handler organized should give you even more respect for the talented star.
For anyone who believed the marches taking place across America on Saturday were for women only, let Legend's presence act as a reminder you can get so much more done when all people stand together. He may not be giving a big speech, but Legend showed up, he stood alongside thousands of others, and he made his voice heard. Legend is one star you can always feel good about supporting because he is just as devoted to supporting you.
