Uncle Joe Biden received a standing ovation last night for his pointed speech on sexual assault during the 88th Academy Awards. 

The Vice President introduced Lady Gagawho performed her emotional song “Till It Happens To You” from the movie Hunting Ground. The film and song shed light on rape culture.

Biden urged the audience to take a pledge that says “I will intervene in situations when consent has not or cannot be given. Let’s change the culture. We must and we can change the culture so that no abused woman or man like the survivors you will see tonight ever have to ask themselves ‘what did I do?’ They did nothing wrong. I really mean this.”

Thank you Biden, for using this platform for some #realtalk.
