Black Twitter reacts to lack of diversity in Academy Awards nominations with #OscarsSoWhite

BLACK TWITTER WHITE OSCARS….

 
The Academy has officially pissed off Black Twitter by unabashedly snubbing African American actors and directors in this year’s Oscar nominations.. 

 
OOOP…

DIG THIS BLACK-LASH…

 
As the nominees for the 2016 Academy Awards were announced, Black Twitter soldiers couldn’t help but notice the obvious lack of diversity in the list of potential winners featured throughout the star studded event’s 20 acting categories. 

 
While white screen gems such as Jennifer Lawrence (“Joy”), Cate Blanchett (“Carol”), and Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Revenant”) made the list of Hollywood honeys poised to take home the little golden man, black actors like Michael B. Jordan (“Creed”), Idris Elba (“Beast Of No Nation”), Will Smith (“Concussion”), and the cast of NWA biopic, “Straight Outta Compton,” were completely MIA on the roster of Oscar noms..

  

SHAME…

 
In addition to the African American actor snub, black directors like F. Gary Gray (“Straight Outta Compton”) and Ryan Coogler (“Creed”) also caught the fade via the Academy Award nominations committee…

The Oscars’ only saving grace is that they’ve selected comedian Chris Rock to host the event…but still, that’s NOT enough. 

THEREFORE…

Black Twitter tweeters collectively took to their shooting range and under the hashtag, #OscarsSoWhite, aimed digital amo at the award show for disregarding and disrespecting the work of creative artists of color. 

 
PEEP THE MADNESS…
