The 2018 SAG Awards host, Kristen Bell subtly criticised the US First Lady for her failure in combating cyberbullying, which was her promise before occupying the White House.

Hollywood actors on Sunday night, January 21, 2018, came out in their most glamorous looks to celebrate and to receive reward for their outstanding performances in the past year at the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The event, which was held in Los Angeles, California, United States, was hosted, for the first time, by actress Kristen Bell.

She kick-started the ceremony by taking a jab at US First Lady, Melania Trump.

“There has never been a host for this awards show before. First time. First person. First lady. I honestly never thought I would grow up to be the first lady, but you know what, I kind of like it. I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” CNN quoted Bell as saying.

Although Bell did not mention Mrs. Trump’s name, she was obviously making reference to the First Lady, who had said that combating cyberbullying would be her key focus during her time in the White House.
