Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, adorable talented couple that they are, have started doing this thing where they hold up little signs touting “good causes” when they know they’re about to be photographed by the paparazzi.
Example here via Just Jared:
Here’s the thing: this time they included Autism Speaks.
Surely you’ve heard about the organization. It has great brand recognition.
But it also has issues. And I hate to think that the well-intentioned Emma and Andrew would promote Autism Speaks if they knew how much money the organization has poured into finding a link between vaccines and autism. Or how little of the money raised goes toward supporting families living with autism. Or how the organization has marginalized autistic adults.
But definitely go support Gilda’s Club.
