Ryan Reynolds And Blake Lively Apologize For Plantation Wedding
In an interview with Fast Company, Ryan Reynolds has said he and Blake Lively are sorry for their plantation wedding.
The couple had their wedding at Boone Hall, a former plantation in South Carolina in 2012.
Reynolds said that although it is “impossible to reconcile”, the couple are “deeply and unreservedly sorry”.
But repatterning and challenging lifelong social conditioning is a job that doesn't end, Ryan Reynolds to Fast Company.
In June 2020, the pair donated $200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
In 2019 they donated around $1 million to the NAACP Fund, as well as to the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights.
Reynolds is reluctant to talk about his support for social justice issues.
This is because he doesn't want to “drown out non-white voices”, according to Fast Company.
He revealed that his marketing agency Maximum Effort is focused on doing its part for equality in the workplace.
When you add perspective and insight that isn't your own, you grow. And you grow your company, too, Ryan Reynolds to Fast Company
