Celebrities #MarchForOurLives on Instagram

March For Our Lives, a protest for greater gun control in the United States led by students, has seen the support of many celebrities, who showed their advocacy for the cause not just through social media channels but also by turning up either at the main event in Washington D.C. or to one of the many sibling events held across the country.

Among these celebrities is Miley Cyrus, who performed at the event and later posted several videos and photos about it on her Instagram and Tumblr accounts.

She also posted several snippets of CNN coverage of her singing at the event as well as the crowd’s response. In these videos, she expresses the honor she felt for having been given the opportunity to be a part of the event. Her video, posted 3 days ago, has received over 3.6 million views.

Another celebrity member of the demonstration was Selena Gomez, singer and influencer with the highest number of followers on Instagram. Gomez first posted an image 5 days ago with the official poster for the protest, using the hashtag #MarchForOurLives.

She later posted another photo of herself at the event, this time accompanied by the hashtag #notjustahashtag and with comments disabled.

Singer and songwriter Taylor Swift also posted an image of the official poster on her little-used Instagram account, although she does not appear to have attended any of the demonstrations in person. Swift, who typically avoids posting about politics, announced that she has donated to the campaign to indicate her support.

Aside from those in the music industry, reality TV personality and celebrity-influencer Kim Kardashian flew down to Washington D.C. with her spouse, Kanye West, to join in the protest.
