Sunday night's 75th annual Golden Globes had a theme this year — Time's Up, a movement geared toward putting an end to the sexual harassment that seems to run rampant in the entertainment industry. The attendees wore all black attire and pins to raise awareness.
But after the Globes come the afterparties. According to Insider, InStyle magazine set up a video booth (like a photo booth, but with video) called the Facinator, made to look like a hotel elevator, complete with bellhop. Celebrity guests were encouraged to do bits, and the resulting videos were posted to social media.
One video in particular has created some controversy — the one with Sarah Hyland of Modern Family.
The director of the clip, Douglas Friedman, described Hyland as "getting smashed." In the short clip, Hyland drinks straight from a champagne bottle (or pretends to) and acts drunk, leaning on and flirting with the bellhop, and at one point even falling back into his arms.
But the video feels tone-deaf, given the theme of the night. Instagram users left comments criticizing what they considered to be an inappropriate video.
But not everybody thought the video was problematic.
So there are the two basic arguments: some people find the video highly offensive, while others see nothing wrong with it. What do you think?
