It’s been done before: Entertainers wear all kinds of clothing and other accouterments at awards shows to highlight a particular cause.

Montana Tucker

On Sunday at the Grammy Awards ceremony, actor/singer and social-media influencer Montana Tucker affixed a large yellow ribbon to her dress, covering much of her torso. In white letters across the top, it read: “Bring Them Home.”

Tucker is the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors and a Jewish activist. She addressed a crowd of nearly 300,000 at the “March for Israel” on Nov. 14 in Washington, D.C., draping a blue-and-white Israeli flag over her shoulders that day.

Moshe Reuven

On her TikTok (9 million followers) and Instagram (3.1 million), she has talked about antisemitism, saying: “My Zaide would always say that his life goal was to educate, educate, educate, to make sure that people would never forget. He would wear a pin that said, ‘I’m a survivor.’ That was always very important to both my grandparents.”

Others who have worn similar yellow ribbons at award shows include J. Smith-Cameron, who played corporate lawyer Gerri Kellman in all four seasons of the HBO series “Succession”; and actor John Ortiz of the comedy-drama film “American Fiction,” who featured them at the Golden Globes on Jan. 7.

Another Grammys attendee advocating for Israel included Moshe Reuven, the only Orthodox Jew invited to the awards show, who wore a “Never Again” shirt created by StandWithUs and Perspective Fitwear. Reuven is an alternative hip-hop musician known for his song “You Are Not Alone.”

Dozens of anti-Israel protesters attempted to disrupt the event, though they didn’t prevent any celebrities from arriving on the red carpet.

    Wonderful! Different energies visible, from Montana Tucker to Moshe Reuven. Wonderful. We shall not fade away to invisibility; we shall not shut-up; and we will continue to be proud of who we are and fight for those of us who are attacked.
