    Nearly every star attending the Golden Globes wore black as a statement against sexual misconduct in Hollywood — so one red dress didn't blend in on the red carpet.

    Actress Blanca Blanco ditched the black dress code for a red cut-out dress, and was getting heat on social media. Others said shaming her for her color choice is part of the problem.

    Sunday night's black-clad demonstration was promoted by the recently formed Time's Up. It's an initiative of hundreds of women in the entertainment industry — including Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey — who have banded together to advocate for gender parity in executive ranks.

    Also not in black was Meher Tatna, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. She says her red dress was made months ago.

    It wasn't clear if Blanco didn't get the memo or just decided to go her own way.

    Blanco tweeted after the show "The issue is bigger than my dress color #TIMESUP."

    But some others on social media took shots at the actress for her warddrobe choice.
