Celebrities wear ribbons to the Oscars to show their support for the #WengerOut movement


Wenger out at the Oscars

Actors and directors have lent their support to the #WengerOut movement by wearing red and white ribbons to last night’s Academy Awards.

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood believed last night’s star-studded bash at The Dolby Theatre was the perfect platform to speak out about the injustices going on in North London.

“We have to stand together and say enough is enough,” explained Mudbound star Mary J. Blige.

“For too long Arsenal fans have been forced to suffer the indignity of finishing between second and fifth in the Premier League.

“The warning signs were there when he signed Nelson Vivas and Amaury Bischoff, but too many people in the industry just turned a blind eye.”

Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, Woody Harrelson and Frances McDormand were among the Tinseltown A-listers calling for the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to resign as they took to the red carpet.

Best Director winner Guillermo Del Toro wore the ribbon as he accepted his Oscar for The Shape of Water, before telling the audience that it was time for Wenger to move on.

He said, “I would like to thank the wonderful cast and crew I had to great privilege of working with on the movie – you did an Amazing job. Just like Arsene did for the first fifteen years of his Arsenal reign.

“But things change – well, everything except the Arsenal manager it seems.”

Meryl Streep was also expected to give an impassioned speech if she had won the Best Actress award for her performance in The Post, however, she did not.

“If one more Tottenham fan says ‘mind the gap’ I’m going to fucking lose it,” the Bridges of Madison County star told friends.

“It’s got to the point that I’m agreeing with Piers sodding Morgan.”
