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 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ 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??
