When the cast of Stranger Things took the stage for their surprising win at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, David Harbour delivered the best acceptance speech of the night.
Without addressing Donald Trump or his controversial executive order targeting Muslim nations, Harbour passionately said he received the award as a "call to arms" to battle against the "fear, self-centeredness, and exclusivity of our predominantly narcissistic culture.”
Pointing to the 1983 Midwestern story of Stranger Things, the actor said: “We will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home. We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters. And when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will—as per Chief Hopper—punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the weak and the disenfranchised and the marginalized! And we will do it all with soul, with heart, and with joy."
