Los Angeles: TV host Ryan Seacrest accessorised his velvet suit with a Time's Up bracelet at the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet, a year after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

Seacrest showed off his bracelet on the one-year anniversary of the organisation's creation after a stylist filed a police report with the LAPD alleging he sexually harassed her.

The popular host has strenuously denied the accusation and a third-party investigator later found the claim to be unsubstantiated.

Viewers on social media immediately called out Seacrest for sporting the bracelet.

"Ryan Seacrest wearing a Time's Up wristband should cause him to burst into flames like a sinner in church," wrote a Twitter user.

"Ryan Seacrest is wearing? A Time's Up bracelet? While everyone just kinda ignores that he was one of the accused men last year? SURE OK," commented another. "What gives Ryan Seacrest the ego to wear a #TimesUp bracelet? Does he think we forgot?" tweeted another one. "My dude, the time for you is not today"

A user wroter, "Ryan Seacrest wearing a #TimesUp bracelet really is the definition of irony, isn't it?"

At last year's Oscars red carpet, actor Taraji P Henson shaded Seacrest about the accusations against him.

"The universe has a way of taking care of good people," Henson said to Seacrest, touching his chin.
