On Sunday, the Puerto Rican actress and former professional baseball player, Alex Rodriguez, spoke out on behalf of Isla Encanto and to show support for the #MeToo and #TIMESUP movements. The two advocates were reminding the nation that the island is still in need of a lot more support.

In the spirit of equality, the Shades of Blue star said, "Today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles and a lot of the women with #TIMESUP  are standing up for equality, to be treated equally, and for sexual harassment, and I stand here today in black doing the same from far away. And it's the same thing with here in Puerto Rico we want to be treated equally." With a cracked voice full of emotion from Lopez, the Sharktank judge clapped in support of the movement and his love.
