Boycott E! News on the red carpet!

  • by: Care2 Team
  • recipient: Stars attending the 90th Academy Awards on March 4

UPDATE: E! host Ryan Seacrest has been accused of sexual harassment. An E! News investigation found insufficient evidence to discipline him and he'll still be on the red carpet to interview stars. Join us in asking attendees at the upcoming Oscars ceremony to boycott E! News due to the allegations against Seacrest and E!'s biased treatment of ex-host Catt Sadler. Please sign!

Just like many news outlets, E! News continues to say things about supporting movement like #MeToo and #TimesUp. But what does that matter if they are contributing to the problem themselves? 

Catt Sadler and co-host Jason Kennedy of E! News had the same job — but Sadler decided to bravely quit when she learned that Kennedy made almost twice her salary. And recently, E! host Ryan Seacrest has been accused by a former stylist of shocking allegations of  "years of unwanted sexual aggression."

E! has not demomstrated that they take either of these scandals seriously at all, which is why we are calling for stars to boycott them at all the upcoming award shows on the red carpet.

Sign on to ask stars not to talk to E! on the red carpet to protest their mishandling of sexual harassment complaints against stars like Ryan Seacrest and gendered pay inequality.

Despite the seriousness of the harassment complaints and continued calls for Ryan Seacrest to step away from his red carpet duties, Seacrest says he'll still attend to interview the Oscar attendees. That's why we are asking Oscar honorees and performers to ignore him and E! on the red carpet. 

The Oscars are Sunday March 4. Now is the time to do this boycott! Please sign and share. 

Update #11 years ago
Hardly anyone talked to Seacrest at the Oscars last night. But E! News still sent him. Let’s keep the pressure on them to finally weed out harassers.
