Millie Bobby Brown is best known for her role in the science fiction thriller drama series, Stranger Things. And John Cena brought the world to the wrestling ring every time he stepped into it. The two do not seem like people who you would find in the same room unless the room is for presidential candidates and the internet is voting. However, you can always count on Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards to pack the best of both worlds, which is exactly what they did when they got John Cena to host the award show in 2018.
Being who he is, the wrestler set the mood right off the bat. While Cena made sure that not a second goes by where the audience does not enjoy themselves, he also shed light on a very important issue while hosting the award show. Millie Bobby Brown followed this suit during her acceptance speech.
Millie Bobby Brown and John Cena put the KCA 2018 stage to good use
The Kids Choice Awards, despite obviously being curated for kids, rake in a large audience because who does not want their favorite celebrities to be bathed in green slime? Grabbing this opportunity by the jugular, John Cena, who was the host in 2018, decided to use his stage to encourage young teenage activists. The wrestler-turned-actor, although strayed away from mentioning guns, cheered on for all the kids taking charge. “Change is only possible when we all work together. And it’s so inspiring to see kids take charge!” John Cena said as reported by Vulture.
Millie Bobby Brown followed suit and used her time in the spotlight to pay tribute to gun violence victims. The Stranger Things star dedicated her award to them by saying, “For the angels among us, your spirit lives on. This is for you.” Furthermore, the actress even wore a t-shirt with the names of the victims on the back. No wonder Brown is praised by the audiences and Hollywood alike for her sensibility.
Is the Stranger Things actress an activist?
Brown is noted for using her voice to right the wrongs in the world. The very year that she used her moment at the Kids Choice Awards to pay tribute to gun violence victims, she also became UNICEF’s youngest Goodwill Ambassador. This is undoubtedly a stunning feat to achieve.
