Filed under: TV NewsPolitikTwitter

no title

So in case you hadn't heard, someone at Deadline wrote an op-ed that wondered allowed, "sure we're getting more ethnic diversity on TV, but is it TOO MUCH ethnic diversity on TV?"

No, srsly.

The title of the article is Pilots 2015: The Year Of Ethnic Casting — About Time Or Too Much Of A Good Thing?

[ Video: Racial Controversy! Perez Talks Empire, Raven-Symoné, & More! ]

Basically the article posits that after scoring big hits with Empire, Fresh Off The Boat, and How To Get Away With Murder, networks are making a big push to put more ethnicities front and center on TV — but that this initiative is wrong because it's hurting white actors!

WELL, Shonda Rhimes, the executive producer of HTGAWM — as well as the creator of Scandal and Grey's Anatomy — has a response to that! She tweeted:

Kanye West Thinks 'Racism' Is A Dated Concept — Listen To Why He's Removed The Word From His Vocabulary HERE!

Filed under: PolitikKanye West

The topic of racism isn't new to Kanye West.

Kim Kardashian West's baby daddy has been at the center of somewhat controversial situations when it comes to that age old word.

Like when he decided to take a stand against racism and wore the Confederate flag on the sleeve of his jacket — or when he spoke about racism at the BET Honors this year — he's here to say enough with that old concept.

The All Day rapper stopped by Clique TV on Thursday to talk about his music, fashion, and everything in between.

It wasn't until the interviewer asked Yeezy about social racism did he dismiss the word — and not in a bad way!

Ozzy Osbourne Threatens To Put His Foot Up Billy Bush's A** After The Access Hollywood Host Disses Kelly Over The Zendaya Controversy!

no title

The debate over whether Giuliana Rancic made the same Zendaya "weed" comment multiple times during the most recent taping of Fashion Police has grown legs and taken on a life of it's own!

Although it has been reported that the FP panel taped that specific episode three times and the E! News host reportedly said the same line every single take, Access Hollywood's Billy Bush finds that hard to believe — even confirming via text that Rancic said they taped the show only once.

During an episode of AH Live this week, Bush started talking about the E! controversy and defended his hosting peer.

He then went on to claim that the relationship between Kelly Osbourne and G is NOT good right now. He said:

Your Reaction?

Race is an issue that this needs to be talked about, and MTV is trying to get the conversation started.

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, for the first time in the network's history, they'll be airing all of their programs in black and white from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The goal is jar audiences enough that they'll begin having, what MTV is calling "The Talk – candid, confident and 'color brave' conversations on race and bias." It's all a part of their Look Different anti-bias campaign.

Throughout the day, monologues from people like Kendrick Lamar, Common, Big Sean, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Penn Badgley, Jordin Sparks, Pete Wentz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. John Lewis, and Sen. Cory Booker will air, to help get people to discuss our differences.

We have a first look at Penn Badgley's clip for you (above)!

Twitter Reacts To The All-White/All-Male Oscar Nominations With A Whole Lot Of Anger! And An #OscarsSoWhite Hashtag!

lack of diversity oscar nominations twitter erupts in anger

WOW! This is bad… like REALLY bad…

The Oscar nominations for 2015 were announced this morning and after sifting through the list of snubs and surprises, another worrying factor has surfaced on Twitter

All 20 nominees in the Best Actor/Actress and Supporting Actor/Actresses are white, something that hasn't happened since 1998!

[ Photos: Oscar Nominations 2015 — Surprises & Snubs! ]

Now, we're not saying that Benedict Cumberbatch, Steve Carrell, and the rest of the nominees didn't deserve their accolades… but did they REALLY have to snub David Oyelowo?

Add to Selma director Ava DuVernay's snub the fact that Gillian Flynn didn't get the nod for adapting her novel Gone Girl, and that means no female directors or screenwriters were nominated either!

The results have, understandably been blowing up on the Twitterverse with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite and some of the responses are absolutely brilliant!

Ch-ch-check out some of the tweets about the lack of diversity (below)!!!
