So, what did the actor have to say about it??
Speaking in a New Yorker profile on Saturday Night Live comedian Leslie Jones, the 50-year-old admitted:
"Black women have the hardest gig in show business. You hear Jennifer Lawrence complaining about getting paid less because she's a woman – if she was black, she'd really have something to complain about."
His statement was in reference to Leslie revealing:
"Every black comedian in the country knew what I could do. But that doesn't mean everyone else is paying attention."
Hmm… We can only imagine how J.Law will react to his somewhat harsh words.
But what do U think?? Was he in the right??
