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!

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)!!!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTwitter

no title

Seriously?

When Jacqueline Woodson won the Young People's Literature Prize at the National Book Awards on Wednesday, she never thought she was also going to receive some casual racism thrown her way.

But, that's exactly what happened when host Lemony Snicket, aka Daniel Handler, congratulated the author of Brown Girl Dreaming by making an off-handed joke that, as a black woman, it was ironic that Jacqueline was allergic to watermelon.

iTunes And Amazon Prime Adds A Disclaimer For Racism In Tom & Jerry Cartoons!!

Filed under: TV NewsWhoopi GoldbergStuff 4 Kidz

Tom and Jerry now comes with an unexpected warning for viewers!

Most people with two eyes and a heart would probably agree that Tom And Jerry is easily one of the most recognizable and beloved animated series of all time.

However, as Amazon Prime and iTunes are quick to point out, there are more than a few episodes out there that contain offensive and racist humor that would simply NOT fly by today's standards.

Both streaming services are offering episodes of the iconic cartoon for their customers, but they both also made sure to include disclaimers and warnings that there is definitely some racist content that your kiddies might not want to see.

Taylor Swift's Music Video Director Is Shaking Off The Racist Claims! Check Out His Defense Served With A Side Of Shade HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor SwiftGIFs

taylor swift music video racist accusation

We doubt anyone really thinks Taylor Swift is racist.

Gurl is only full of GOOD things!

But some people, including rapper Earl Sweatshirt, felt her music video for Shake It Off was racist. Even though he hadn't watched the video, he felt that the scenes with Swifty in a hip-hop outfit of cutoff shorts, a cropped leopard-print jacket, and gold hoop earrings were "perpetuating black stereotypes" as she was filmed crawling under a row of twerking dancers.

However, while Tay will likely be silently shaking off this claim, the director of her music video has something to say.

Mark Romanek defended their work:
