Danny Glover rallies stars against Hugo Boss for the Oscars


Danny Glover, in collaboration with labor union Workers United has sent out letters requesting Hollywood stars to deny wearing Hugo Boss for the Oscars. This is reply to the option for 400 Hugo Boss manufacturing workers losing their jobs in Clevelend if the company closes down the plant there. Glover sent a letter to dozens of Oscar nominees and others in the film industry to encourage them to not wear Hugo Boss for the big event. In addition, he is requesting them to wear a pin that reads “Keep the Hugo Boss Plant Open.” Celebs who were sent the letter and pin include George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Sean Penn, Colin Firth, Morgan Freeman, Jeremy Renner, and Matt Damon.

Below is the official letter:

    It will be interesting to see if the stars wear Hugo Boss now…..if they don’t that could be a huge blow to the name

    I think it’s great that celebrities are looking out for the well being of normal citizens who need jobs just to pay the bills
