The Oscars: 'Armed and protected' Hollywood slammed as hypocritical for wearing orange badges against gun violence

Amid the #MeToo and Time's Up movement, this year's Oscars, which is scheduled to take place on March 4,  will see attendees wearing orange pins. The pin is being used as a means of raising awareness about gun violence, a movement gaining momentum oin light of the Florida High School shooting.

Following the tragic incident, celebrities came forward, donating a part of their earnings towards the “March for Our Lives” campaign calling for gun control. However, this decision has not gone down well with many taking to social media platformsto label Hollywood  "hypocrites" for their decision. Here are some of the views that are being expressed by people.
