Yikes! Bet they didn't think they'd get such backlash from this!
However, the internet has exploded with rage because the AH-MAZE Lupita Nyong'o and the absolutely beautiful Laverne Cox were NOT included on the list!
But, you say, doesn't TIME choose the people they include, so they don't really have a reason to be mad?
The annual Most Influential People list has a public voting period that lets people show the editor's who they want on the list! Then, after the voting period, the editors choose their picks!
Well, what's angering everyone is that Laverne and Lupita got the highest percentage of YES's in the entire poll!
AND the Orange is the New Black actress had the highest number of voters second only to Benedict!
How is that okay?!? HOW can they be put on the list over those two?!?!??!
We don't understand!
