Celebrities at the Oscars on Sunday decided to band together to express their desire for increased gun control measures, with many sporting orange lapel pins.

However, others on social media pointed out the perceived hypocrisy — as the event was secured with hundreds of officers who were carrying guns.

The display was organized by the gun control group Everytown.

Following the recent shooting in Parkland, Florida, celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney donated substantial sums of money to “March for Our Lives,” a gun control march being organized that will take place in Washington this spring.
