The shooting in which 17 people were killed and 14 others were injured, three trucks were parked close to the Doral-based office of Senator Marco Rubio and each carried one line of a message for the Florida lawmaker, reported Entertainment Weekly. "Slaughtered in school." "And still no gun control?" "How come, Marco Rubio?" The protesters took a cue from Frances McDormands character in the Oscar-nominated film, which sees a mother erect three signs criticising the police's inability to track down her daughter's killer.

Continuing its winning streak, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won big at the BAFTAs as the critically-acclaimed crime drama earned five major awards at the ceremony, including Best Film and Best Actress for Francis McDormand. The movie about an angry mother who goes to extremes to keep the investigation focused on her daughter's murder was also recognised in the Best British Film category as the echo of Hollywood's #TimesUp movement against sexual harassment resonated at the Royal Albert Hall here. While director Martin McDonagh won the golden mask for Original Screenplay, Sam Rockwell received the Bafta for Best Supporting Actor in the movie.
