Saturday’s March For Our Lives protest, which took place in Washington D.C., New York City, Los Angeles and many more cities across the country, brought millions of people together to take a stand against gun violence. Celebrities came out in full force to show their support, including Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Hailey Baldwin, Jaden Smith, Christie Brinkley and Millie Bobby Brown. They also took the protest as an opportunity to wear their emotions on their sleeves.
Jenner marched alongside her best friend Baldwin wearing a denim jacket that featured a photo of President Donald Trump’s mouth being held shut by a safety pin. The image was surrounded by the words “GOD SAVE US… HE AIN’T MY PRESIDENT…” Baldwin also wore her support, sporting a black “March For Our Lives” sweatshirt, as Jenner held a matching flag.
Last April, Jenner faced controversy for starring in a Pepsi ad in which she appeared as a protester, which many interpreted as tone-deaf during a politically fraught time. (Pepsi quickly pulled the commercial.) Since the controversy, after which Jenner said she “completely shut down,” the model has kept a low profile when it comes to politics.
Christie Binkley marched as well, wearing a black hat with the words “NO GUNS,” which she says she added with tape while on her way to the event.
