Mayim Bialik is disappointed that Oscars attendees did not wear a yellow ribbon demanding the return of Israeli hostages, she wrote in a Friday Instagram post.

The “Big Bang Theory” star and former “Jeopardy!” host said she has “opinions about a lot of things that went down at the Oscars,” but the one she was willing to share is that “every single human being” should have been calling for the hostages’ release by terrorist group Hamas.

Mark Ruffalo, Billie Eilish and Ava DuVernay, meanwhile, were among the talent on Sunday’s red carpet wearing a red pin calling for an Israel-Hamas cease-fire, a move that came after more than 400 entertainers signed Artists4Ceasefire’s open letter to President Joe Biden similarly calling for the administration to “honor all of the lives in the Holy Land and call for and facilitate a ceasefire without delay – an end to the bombing of Gaza and the safe release of hostages.”
