To clear up any confusion. I will be going to the Oscars in support of the victims of clergy Sexual Abuse and good journalism. #Spotlight— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 21, 2016
I do support the Oscar Ban movement's position that the nominations do not reflect the diversity of our community.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 21, 2016
The Oscar Ban movement reflects a larger discussion about racism in the criminal justice system.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 21, 2016
Correction. I hope the Oscar Ban movement opens the way for my peers to open their hearts to the #BlackLivesMatter movement as well.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 21, 2016
"I'm very sympathetic to it. This is a discussion that we're having right now in America."
"Do you boycott the Oscars?"
"You know, I'm in a quandry about it and I'll tell you why. Because this movie represents another kind of victimized people. And I'm sort of carrying, not just for investigative journalism, but, we're carrying the torch for those people as well."
"...If you were up for The Fantastic 4, would you boycott the Oscars then?"
"I would seriously consider it. I would seriously consider it. I would also ask the people who are boycotting the Academy Awards to really step out with the "Black Lives Matter" movement, to go beyond their little world and to step into where real lives are being threatened and lost."
