She wore the names of the Parkland shooting victims on her shirt

Nickelodeon's annual Kids' Choice Awards event took place this year on March 24, the same day as the March for Our Lives protests that happened in cities across the United States and around the world. Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown, who won the award for "Favorite TV Actress" took the opportunity to address and show her support for the protest, while also honoring the deceased in her emotional acceptance speech.

She also paid tribute to the march by wearing a denim shirt with "March For Our Lives" emblazoned at the top, with the names of the 17 victims from the Parkland shooting written below. The shirt also had the phrase "Never Again" above the front pocket in reference to the movement started by a group of Parkland student survivors fighting against gun violence.

"The March for Our Lives demonstrations that took place all over the world today have inspired me and impacted us all in one way or another," she said, upon accepting her award, adding:

I am so very grateful and I appreciate the love and support of my fans and the opportunity that our show, Stranger Things, has created for me. But more than anything, I get to be up here, and I’m privileged to have a voice that can be heard, one that I can use to hopefully make a positive difference and help influence change.

She then made a tearful nod to victims of gun violence, saying, "For the angels among us, your spirit lives on. This is for you."

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.



But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.


The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
