Stars protest Gaza deaths at Cannes Film Festival

If Kristen Stewart's barefoot trek up the stairs was meant to be a rebellion against wearing high heels on the Cannes red carpet, she wouldn't be the first actress to kick off her shoes in protest. In a statement made to Reuters, Palestinian film producer and director, May Odeh touched on the surreal nature of being in attendance at Cannes while violence continues, saying: "It's really insane to be here with the films, with the filmmakers, talking about our future plans while our kids and families are suffering from the Israeli attack on them".

She posed on the red carpet for the Blackkklansman screening in a stylish pair of black Christian Louboutin stilettos and once her photos were done, she made a decision to take her heels off and walk barefooted on the red carpet.

Kristen Stewart is such a rebel and she recently took it to an global level.

"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either", she stated emphatically at the time. The film, by Spike Lee, stars Corey Hawkins and Topher Grace and takes on the checkered history of the Ku Klux Klan.

The actress was protesting the requirement to wear heels.

Tesla that smashed into fire authority truck was on Autopilot, driver claims
Tesla said it had not yet received vehicle data and did not yet know the facts, including whether Autopilot was engaged. Currently, Tesla has around 500,000 preorders for its more affordable model 3, its first mass-market electric auto .

Stewart doubled down on her previous comments during a roundtable discussion a year ago.

At the 2016 festival, Stewart told Vanity Fair that the "no flats" policy needed to change immediately.

"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man".

Although several Twitter users applauded Stewart's rebellious move, others criticized her for what they viewed to be a small gesture in a serious, ongoing debate for women's rights. "I understand the whole theme with black ties, but we need to allow women to walk without heels". Either way, she certainly caused a stir.

Cannes is renowned for attracting the world's most handsome people for a week of breathtaking red carpet moments.
