Susan Sarandon had a “little slip” that resulted in multiple injuries.
The 73-year-old actress shared the scary aftermath on her Instagram page, where she provided more details about her fall that forced her to cancel a meeting with Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders.
“A little slip = concussion, fractured nose, banged up knee. So, looks like I won’t be able to meet the folks in New Hampshire with Senator Sanders tomorrow,” she captioned the photos of her bruised face. “I’m really sorry I’ll miss that opportunity but here’s what I’d hoped to say … ”
Sarandon then called for increased awareness surrounding climate change, gun violence and immigration laws.
“This is an emergency. Ask the scientists, the farmers, the creatures in the sea. Ask all those who have lost their homes from hurricanes, flood and fire, ask the endless stream of climate refugees, and the people of Flint, San Juan, and Standing Rock,” Sarandon wrote. “This is an [sic] emergency. Ask the mothers who have lost their children to the opioid epidemic or because of the price of insulin. Ask the mothers who have lost their kids to gun violence in schools, in churches, in their bedrooms. This is an emergency.
“Ask those separated from their families at the border, or those separated from their loved ones by an unjust, racist, for-profit prison system,” she continued. “This is an emergency when our young people have no hope for education, for dream-making, because of insurmountable student debt. When teachers are forced to have additional jobs and when 40 hours of honest labor can still leave you in poverty. …”
Officially giving her endorsement to Sanders, whom she also endorsed in the 2016 election, the “Stepmom” star asked her followers to “fight for him.”
