A good sign

Lu Williams / @Luluannmay

Lord of the Rings and X-Men actor Ian McKellen has been outspoken about his politics and activism, and it’s no surprise that he took part in today’s Women’s March in London. What’s even better is the sign that he carried at one point.

Yep, that’s the Captain Picard facepalm meme, in protest sign form. Given his friendship with Patrick Stewart, it feels like the most appropriate thing for McKellen to be carry today. In a note posted to Twitter, McKellen praised the demonstration, and explained that he found the sign at the end of the parade route.

Updated to include McKellen’s note.
