Michael Keaton at Golden Globe Awards

Gabrielle Union

Don’t you hate it when certain groups constantly search for something to be offended by? The 2017 Golden Globes gave Black Twitter a reason to be mad on Sunday night when 2 stars flubbed the title of Pharrell Williams‘ movie Hidden Figures.

Today Show‘s Jenna Bush Hager and actor Michael Keaton mashed up the titles of Hidden Figures and the Denzel Washington-directed Fences.

Black Twitter’s social justice militants are among the biggest offenders of faux outrage online. They take offense at the smallest mistake, compounding a simple flub into evidence of white privilege and oppression of black people.

Last week they took the bait and vented their phony outrage at Yahoo Finance for tweeting a racial slur, which was probably intentional.

This week their target is the Golden Globes. By next week the “Hidden Fences” fiasco will be forgotten. It’s a good bet that most of them still haven’t purchased tickets to see Hidden Figures.

Do better Black Twitter.

    Haha…that was funny..and the fake outrage is stupid.

  • Low E. TUH!

    “… and the Denzel Washington-directed Fences.”

    I DIDN’T WATCH, BUT I SAW MANY AND PLENTY OF SPEECHES/RECAPS. HE WAS PISSED AF WHEN VIOLA WAS GIVING HER SPEECH…FACE WAS STRAIGHT UP, “I’M SO SICK OF THIS INDUSTRY.”

  • Junkanoo

    The first couple times l read the title to this film l to thought it read Hiddenfences and was thinking what an odd title. The brain is on automatic poilt alot of times and not always paying close attention

  • Renee26

    Did they also mash up other movie titles together in error or was it just these 2 popular movies that just so happen to have leading black actors?? If not then the offense (if any) is more than likely justified.

    So Lee Daniels said he made Stars bc he wanted white ppl to feel good abt them selves..

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Why?! What did she say why he was mad?

  • Chardonnai

    Pharrell Williams‘ movie Hidden Figures.
    _—————————————————
    Its not his movie dammit.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I was waiting on someone to bring this up…

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Movie practically ties Rogue One but folks ain’t buying tickets?! Okay sis

  • darealwifey
  • Kanyade

    Can I just say that when I went to see it Thursday night (opening) that the theater was full?….of YTpipol? and me and my coworker were the only blyk folks?

    Loved the film. I cried twice; like a good cry, a happy cry. Such a well done film, well acted. I hope it goes on to make more money.

  • Chardonnai

    Denzel is on the verge of going tf OFF on Hollywood. You can see it in face. He’s sick of the bull shyt.

  • darealwifey

    Right. lol If I weren’t sick this past weekend, I would’ve been there. Can’t wait to see it!

  • Letrice

    Sandra you always have something negative to say about the black community but the reality is your blog wouldn’t be shit without us. You’re such a hater.

  • Chardonnai

    Hell now. Sprites would lose their minds.

  • Sucker Free

    She identifies as British, no?

    I’m quoting Django btw ?

  • Chardonnai

    Anybody see Trump clapback at Meryl Strep. Called her the most overrated actress in Hollywood.

  • MystyBlu

    Ion have twitter but I DID see both Fences and Hidden Figures. Will be seeing Hidden Figures again this week with the boo and will purchase both when they come out on Amazon. That being said, the mix up was extremely disrespectful and I’m sure NEITHER saw those movies in the theater. It’s okay to stay getting our actors/actresses/movies mixed up cuz nobody really GAF about our work anyway, right? Miss me with the BS. Wrong is wrong and either they set up crusty lip MK with that teleprompter or he’s just ignorant ????? Jenna probably still drunk from her teens so…

  • MystyBlu

    THIS! I went to an early showing on Thursday and the movie was full to capacity. On a random Thursday evening FOH with the bull.

  • Low E. TUH!

    MF TIDE.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    #ButTheGagIs ??????

  • That’s Interesting

    Crackas need to get it right

  • imright

    How dare ppl want the correct movie title. ?

  • Scromes1212

    So you outraged

  • Soren

    Certain groups? Fake outrage? Yes, I hate when white People reduce my plight. I hate that white People, conservatives, altright supremacists, and their colored empathizers have to give me permission to be outraged. To protest. To be concerned. To be afraid. I hate that racism is only existent, and only defined by those who’s mission in life is to oppress, suppress. Hate hate hate that? Racism doesn’t exist they say. Stop race baiting they say. But charge those “ugly”, “gorilla”, “tarbaby”, “thugs” from Chicago with a hate crime!!!! Only when they decide, benefit, define. Hate hate hate it?

  • iWasteTime

    I’ll comment in the Donnie and Merly post !

  • nucynu25

    Can ppl only feel upset or outraged based on your sentiments ?

  • Trump=Putins bitc#

    Meryl read his ass for filth, and with facts at that.

  • Trey

    He’s a producer and has credits on the score….

  • nucynu25

    PREACH

  • MystyBlu

    I didn’t get pissed from him, I got emotional. I haven’t watched the full broadcast but she won before his award came up. I think he was happy for her (Pauletta was cheering hard!) and emotional that she was getting her first GG and chose to honor him in her speech. He’s been very vocal in his interviews about the movie saying he couldn’t do it without her. That their turn on Broadway MADE her the only Rose he could cast. I think that was just love.

  • Letrice

    Outraged is a bit extreme. I would say I’m disappointed.

  • Trey

    And why was he mad?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    He is a producer. Not just musical oversight. Kinda like how Oprah and Tyler had producing credits on Precious and helped promote it

  • nucynu25

    I cant even articulate the stupidity of that.. thats a coon for that ass. ( never used that word but i couldnt think of a term more fitting )

  • Annaunki

    say what?????????????

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Yes. We already went in on him over the white lead same reason. Don’t like Lee https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b7973ae157fc7371231789c1510459fe3edb784653b8f15961d456f40c5ce78d.jpg

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    If she does I can’t tell. I wonder if she identifies as straight as well. Because the stuff she has to say about the Gays…

  • Scromes1212

    Nope but just like they have the right to feel fake outrage, I have the right to call bullshi

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I loved Hidden Figures and I loved fences. Hidden figures was amazing because these woman were apart of nasa. Im so glad im not one of those blacks who kiss whites ass because we have been the masterminds behind alot. Pharrell is extraordinary with a amazing wife to match.

    OAN: Meryl told not one lie last night. I love how she explained bullies. I hate bullies.

  • Junkanoo

    So why do we keep coming back is the real issue

  • Chardonnai

    Whatever LMAO!

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Sandra’s a sociopath like Trump. They both are insatible narcissists.

    The flub was extremely passive aggressive (typical los angeles crowd), but shouldn’t Sandra be more upset that America’s commander-in-chief-elect cant take backlash from actors … yes, actors … so he goes on a twitter rant.

    Trump is as presidental as Sandra is journalistic.

  • nucynu25

    Missed that .. but man like really ? Them mfs should feel good every time they shoot us & walk away.. they should good reaping the inheritance of slavery. they should feel good when even things created to benefit us cause more good for them ( affirmative action) .. them bishes got alot to feel good abt . This clown acting like they the ones systematically oppressed

  • Scromes1212

    Because blacks come to her blog mostly, she has to agree with everything black people do?why do black people want all black folks to think alike?

  • nucynu25

    simple

  • Incog-knee-gress

    How you go from telling story of Precious and The Butler to a TV show for white self esteem?

  • MystyBlu

    And Pharrell’s slow ass should’ve corrected Jenna. Period. This your damn movie bih, all you had to say was “yes, I’m very excited that Hidden Firgures has been nominated”. Simple and I do it all the time without being a dyck. Folks stay mispronouncing my last name and I stay correcting them with a “you tried it” smile. I’m sure people done messed his name up too so he gets the FU as well ?

  • Missy

    This.

  • Vonn

    Is this Photoshop, or did this fool really wear this awful muskrat wig?

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Same reason most of us shop at Dollar Tree …

    somethings you get from certain stores 😉

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Right.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    It’s real

  • Letrice

    PPL are free to choose whichever emotion they want to. My comment on here was based on my feeling. Does that make sense?

  • Annaunki

    the worst AND MOST dangerous thing than white fakesupremecy IS kolored koons.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Jenna Bush Hager – Is a heavy drinker just like her daddy. What’s the big deal? Drunks mix up their words all the time. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/010b241e26b2d5cd6c58a67af5a7ff4b58abe15fdfa1bdd56cde66d24b5c6065.jpg

  • nucynu25

    True but indeed, but just as you can be passive agressive others will state their fake outrage . Its all really simple .

  • Chardonnai

    He didnt want to look like he was “correcting” a white woman. :rolleyes:

  • Incog-knee-gress

    See below what I said to you. It makes no logical sense. Money and fame went to Lee head

  • MissHarlem

    First off if you get my name wrong I take that as highly disrespectful so imagine my body of work. Get my name as well as my movie correct. Just like I was forced to get your washed up history, TV shows, movies etc correct get mine correct. You can’t be that stupid to not see the disrespect. Surely please don’t continue life being this damn stupid.

  • MystyBlu

    Hey Boo! How was the rest of your weekend? Bishop home yet?

  • nucynu25

    Was i talking to you tho ?

  • Chardonnai

    :facepalm:

  • Vonn

    I’m soo shamed to say that he reminds me of Viv Fox in this pic. I’m going to bed.

  • Sucker Free

    LOL

  • Scromes1212

    I respect your opinion.

  • klwbaby

    And don’t u hate when a certain blogger make a bigger deal out of things that most people have decided to have a sense of humor about …?

  • Lisa daniels

    If the last bush is her daddy rhen yes she her daddy son.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I’m breathless ??? Gn!

  • Chardonnai

    Kolored Koons are worse IMO. They will halt our progress because they want to be like and accepted by Sprites so bad. We most point them out and make sure they arent welcome when shyt hits the fan. Like OJ, Bill Cosby and Tiger Woods.

  • Blue

    Implicit Bias.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    I didn’t see the show, so you are you saying he had a chance to correct her but didnt?

  • Scromes1212

    The comments or Sandra?

  • Lisa daniels

    Folks especially whites will tey to Toby you if you don’t check that ?.

  • Chardonnai

    He big face ass. She looks bloated bout the face.

  • MystyBlu

    THIS! People fugg up my last name ALLLLLLL the time! And it’s one where the mispronunciation is a disrespectful ass word. I am QUICK to correct them. Multiple times if needed. Pharrell is not stupid so he should’ve done the same. And of course it was meant as disrespect. Like it was “one of them movies” ? He had already said Viola’s name for Fences…did he not think it strange that Octavia was nominated for Hidden Fences? Guess that’s like the mix up with Sam Jackson and Laurence Fishburne. Since they look so much alike ?

  • Vonn

    All they have to do is wake up white & they’re good to go. He is so full of it. He wants the white views & dollars.

  • Blue

    The movie title “mix up”. Sandra is something else. lol

  • Chardonnai

    My boss tries it. Every day. I correct her every time. Every day. My name is that damn hard to pronounce. You wont Toby me. FOH.

  • nucynu25

    BLOOP
    I had an older lady at an old job ..kept fukn up my name . Every time she said it wrong i corrected that ass.. One days she said oh its not that serious your mom didn’t tell you to respect elders .. Me: Well my mom told me my name is ******* and every time you address me you will address my as ****** and if you get it wrong 50 times i will correct you 50 times. My momma told me respect was earned .

  • Lisa daniels

    Bloop

  • Annaunki

    yesss, we need to rid this vomit from us, to do that we have send them away stop supporting anything they do, but then again we have hidden Koons, that play both sides of the fence, they want change but refuse to do the necessary to get that change… so over koons O.V.E.R-I.T

  • MystyBlu

    He’s a damn PRODUCER on the movie! I way he should’ve let that slide. He Disney have to be rude about. Just repeat what she said with the CORRECT name of the movie. I can’t smdh

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Bloop

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This what pist me off. There are videos to his reaction on news networks so you know he heard her and processed it. This makes me mad just as much. Have maybe not outrage…but hell SOMETHING towards him too

  • Scromes1212

    He stopped drinking like 25 years ago. But I get your point.

  • Lisa daniels

    I get creep vibes for Lee. I think he sex animals.?

  • Chardonnai

    One days she said oh its not that serious your mom didn’t tell you to respect elders .
    ———————————————
    DA FUQQ? That’s like that cop telling that black lady to tell her son not to litter. Bish one thing doesnt have to do with the other.

  • Vonn

    Then makes their hair into wigs.

  • nucynu25

    same

  • MystyBlu

    He damn sure heard her and decided to let that disrespect slide. Nah dude. You can be upset all on Ellen about Kim’s ass, you can kindly redirect this bish over your OWN movie! I’m not even mad at Jenna’s slow self. She been losing brain cells daily since middle school ????? Now MK I’m more upset with.

  • MissHarlem

    Girllll if this ain’t my pet peeve!! My name is easy to say the white way but I will correct you quick fast and in a hurry. Been doing it since a child. I also hate when people write names with a lowercase like sandra instead of Sandra. Burns my biscuits ???

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Sandy merging the names of 2 movies with predominantly black casts is not a “simple flub”. It reflects the dismissive attitude that the stories/actors/movie plots are one in the same.

  • nucynu25

    Put some respeck on my nicca name

  • iWasteTime

    Someone said Jenna daddy stopped drinking 25 years ago … lmaooooo

  • Chardonnai

    he could have calmly said “its Hidden Figures btw,” Closed mouth smile and kept it going. To not correct her makes him look stupid and afraid.

    Like he got something in his closet he’s hiding….

  • MissHarlem

    The blatant passive aggressive disrespect that has been from generation to generation is old and tired. Viligance is needed.

  • MystyBlu

    THIS! You not about to call me outta my name and I’m just gonna take it. And if you keep doing it you’re either an idiot or being funny. So I will continue to get that ass together

  • Letrice

    Habit and convenience and not an issue it’s called my prerogative.

  • Lisa daniels

    I am like if you cant be bother with trying to learn my name don’t speak to me. It’s simple.

  • Chardonnai

    His partner is a Sprite. So same thing.

  • iWasteTime

    I’m so beat he didn’t correct her ass. His face told it all so he should have said, scuse me !

  • nucynu25

    I know you going to disagree but this makes me think of Kim .. its crazy how quick we are to drag our own for transgressions but for sprites we laugh & keep it going .

  • MystyBlu

    THIS! We’re from the north so we know how they do. Sing kumbayah in your face and spit in it at the SAME damn time! Act like they’re all for liberalism and respect then disrespect you in the same breath. Very passive-aggressive. I’m sure many are sitting home fuming that we won so many awards and are upset about an “innocent mistake”. I see them. That shyt was planned

  • MissHarlem

    Also idgaf how old you are. I treat you the way I see fit. You disrespectful to me I’m super disrespectful back. You kind to me I’m super kind to you. So gotdamn simple.

    I guess we still all look alike to them. SMH

  • MystyBlu

    Exactly! Not like he missed it! That was the perfect opportunity to correct her and he swallowed his own dyck on it smdh

  • nucynu25

    I never played that shit .. even with my baby . He has a nicca name too. Sali”heen .. to me it basic pronunciation . Nurses or teachers be saying all type of shit .. Nah ..bish its Sa-li-heen which means descendant of God. I am not the one .. I will correct your pronunciation & give you the meaning.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Not.Hard

  • MissHarlem

    Most definitely. When it came to my name my face gave you the I dare you to mispronounce my name. I love correcting people when they loud and wrong.

  • MissHarlem

    You already know how my name can be pronounced. I hate that common way. It’s not my damn name ugh. My people get it wrong too but difference is we have unique names so it’s easy for a mix-up. But when they mispronounce it’s lack of trying, caring and respect.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    And I have always watched them…. they get to my name which I know its coming cuz of the alphabetical order. I let them struggle with it – I never just jump in to offer the pronunciation. Wait for them to ask – then correct. Cuz it ain’t that hard. You can say Nostradamus you can say my name

    My mom used to “remind” me that her sister was my aunt.

    MK MAY have been reading. But this is his CRAFT! I bet if it was a mistake with La La Land or some other random white film he would’ve corrected it before he spoke. Why you don’t know about our movies. That you agreed to present on? Not like they asked him a question on red carpet and he couldn’t recall the name. He should’ve known that.

    Or even holds a important job at the company. There a fake free speech website. Just banned the Wu tang album dude for going in on a writer. They picked a side a long time ago smh

  • hottlanta

    I hate it when a white person kills a whole family and put the body parts in the ocean, white people bypass that and when they talk about crime they always scream about black on black crime and forget themselves They are on the news site constantly searching for black on black crime and bypassing themselves. They always talk about OJ as the world’s worst criminal and has Charles Manson is in the cell next door.

  • nucynu25

    thanks babe

  • hottlanta

    He’s trying to appease white people to appear to be as non-threatening as possible. That is why he buys his clothes at the children’s department at Sears to appear to be as childlike as possible and not as a full grown robust black man. Running to comfort Ellen really. Did Ellen run to comfort you or any other black person when Trayvon/Freddie/Eddie died. No she sat on that couch with her Hush Puppies shoes on and kept it moving.

  • nucynu25

    You preaching Hot .. I said this shit earlier . Mfs was ready to drag Kim to their personal hell but mute when crackas blatantly disrespect you .

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    He doesn’t want to make people angry.

  • sherri2016

    Fake outrage its nothing worst I hate when when people mispronounce my name its Sherri not Sherria or Sherie so I would be mad too

  • Keesh5000

    I know you 100% Black…I just dont know why you say them. Maybe Im getting it confused with Black twitter because you dont feel you are apart of Black twitter. Is that the case?

  • Scromes1212

    Most people can’t see the what he’s doing. All they have to do is look at his early work. Pusha, Nore, Nas, clipse, it’s all there.

  • nucynu25

    Elaborate please ?

  • Chardonnai

    SMH!!!!

  • Scromes1212

    Can’t speak for her but black twitter is some straight foolishness smh

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    See….but Ellen was not wrong to not have Kim on though.

  • nucynu25

    Your work , your art but you felt compelled to speak on Kim when she wasnt even directly speaking on you or to you . Be consistent in your defense of disrespect ..

  • Chardonnai

    #BlackishAtlantaInsecure

  • Scromes1212

    Pharrell supported all the things he is against now. I’m all for somebody growing but don’t forget what got you on.

  • Wolfperm

    Certain “groups” as if your as is 12 shades lighter then all of them combined. The self hate is real.

  • Chardonnai

    If you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, then you can say name.

  • nucynu25

    True .. if We can come to their defense even against our own shouldnt we accept the same well. Well, obviously we cant but if we can drag our own or feel the need to speak out abt the wrong in the actions of us dont be mute when whitey wrong.

  • Scromes1212

    But you have to admit we got to do better. My sons mom name is spelled Tosha but they call her Tasha. I always tell her you can’t be mad at them for the mistake your mama made. In my humble opinion.

  • Chardonnai

    He might be DL, which is why he so faux “offended”

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    I COMPLETELY agree with you! However, I do think we often are distracted from the most impactful issues that effect our community most detrimentally. We spend too much time expressing our expectation and entitlements rather than leveling the playing field. We complain… But that is all, we don’t remove our valuable Black dollars of support; we don’t follow through with lobbyist and law makers; and we don’t simply force the balance of disrespect ourselves (instead we exhalt White people who happen to throw us a bone).

  • Keesh5000

    Right after you correct them…… here comes the “awwww thats such a pretty name” Bih you said that to all the people name you tried to pronounce and take a dig at

  • Di Ana

    This is down right disrespectful. If white folks can pronounce and remember the movie Maleficent with Angelina Jolie in it, than they should know and remember the title of Hidden Figures even it they did not watch it. I didn’t see the movie yet I know it’s not Hidden Fences!!!!!

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Listen, I fully feel like he should of spoken up. So I agree. I was just saying….but really it can’t always be politically correct

  • nucynu25

    We are not saying you arent allowed to make a mistake .. If Ms. Tosha correctS them & they get it right next time ..no harm file . Now the problem begins when they already hear her name stated numerous times & still fuk it up …or they just dont make the attempt to get it right . We call Tasha ghetto but Michelangelo is so poetic..

  • nucynu25

    right

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Pharrell … He doesn’t rep me….. truth be told.

  • Keesh5000

    Now Im not gonna lie…..Some of us Black folks be acting a straight donkey on Social Media!! Its outta hand. But its seems everyone is their own way, is outta pocket on Social Media..but this is nothing new.

  • Keesh5000

    Singing….. Say it LOUD…. hey, Im Black and Im PROUD!!!

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    My husband gracefully deals with this from Sprites at work, who attempt to condense his beautiful 19 letter Sri Lankan (first + last) name down to something easier for them to pronounce… But King of EVERYTHING is not with the shi+. He blatantly ignores them while sometimes making eye contact until they either ask another co-worker proper pronunciation or make a true valiant effort to re-ask him. He is the most senior engineer on his team as well as the exclusive holder of several special skills and PAS View knowledge… So in short: THEY NEED HIM FOR KNOWLEDGE, HE DOESN’T NEED ANYTHING FROM THEM.

  • MissHarlem

    I remove my money etc to anything that doesn’t support me. I also know we can voice more than one issue at a time. I’m just speaking for myself because I know most think and act differently.
    Ones I know are actually working legally to level playing field. Or like myself work within the community. We have a right to voice all aspects of disrespect no matter how big or minute.

    Nah, they are just plain out DISRESPECTFUL. My name is Sophia, if I had a dollar for everytime a Sprite calls me “Sophie” even after the correction… I could own my own “Blacks Only” island.
    Like dude, I am not your fawking pet! My oldest friend’s wife does it and she’s Sprite. I correct that yeti Every. Single. Time.

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    Unless she was speaking directly to him. 😉

  • Wayup!

    “MIGHT”?

  • Keesh5000

    The only issue I had with the characters in the movie..is the fact that the real Women were Bi-Racial or looked of Bi-Racial descent. Well The main Character that Tarjai P Henson played. I remember doing a report in High School about Katherine Johnson and looking at pictures of her. I think they could have done a better job on the picking an actress that looks similar in color. I know us Black folks are never satisfied…but its just something I noticed. If you do a Movie about me, make sure my character is similar to my shade. Im dark, sooooo Zandaya wouldnt be a good pick for my role. Pretty sure there are a lot of actresses that went for that role and looked similar to Katherine Johnson

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    It’s like Message: “Remember your place, even through these accolades.”

    If you believe that ish you need to google the memorial service held for those five Dallas police officers last year and then come back and correct yourself.

  • Trueblackrose

    This. Exactly.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Certain actors also tried to fail to mention the black director of MoonLight’s name when announcing the nominees. I guess they’ll know his name now since he ended up winning best picture.

    But you trash Obama and the FLOTUS not understanding when white people criticize them they are criticizing all black people.

    I am just glad our folks are finally experiencing #BlackJoy. That’s all I got. Yt folk been petty so their mistake doesnt surprise me. I love that they are being called out for it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0aa7a5426e773ae14752b170a7121a37cb0ead57222c7bf49ae379bc3a473a0d.png

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    I agree and damn I applaud your actions ?but we’re still so fragmented and lost sis. It feels good to do the work, I do it too… But the unity to propel that work is just not there. You know it too. It’s exhausting and heart-wrenching. They’ve been had the power, so this is not going to be easy… but everything is not worth being offended. Offended for what? These folks have been shown themselves, I can’t keep falling for every simple tactic to bruise my spirit and cry out. Simple tactics too! They know we are insecure as a people and yearn for their acknowledgement and therefore every year they can troll our emotions at these “awards” and events. Like, when do we stop even giving this shi+ wings? I just want us to stay focused and make impact and not be so easily roused.

  • missmiami305

    My name is unusual as well. When I was younger folk mispronouncing it didnt bother me. However, as a grown woman that ish grinds my gears. I will ignore and/or correct your arse in a heartbeat.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    I thought once you had a drop of black, no matter how light you are, you’re still black. So what is the problem with tone/shade.

    Never satisfied.

  • MsPam

    And he wants to be part of Hollywood so he’s not got going to complain!

  • surprise2012

    Maybe the real lady wanted Taraji to play her. Sometimes the real person can actually pick who they want to play them.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I think you’re projecting.
    You believe and repeat any and all Republican talking points, but you won’t even view the video because you know that Bush fell off the wagon a long time ago like when he got that black eye after ‘choking on a pretzel’.

    Folks get upset over the dumbest things. She knew what the names were. She was about to say Figures. Yet, she laid so much emphasis on “Fences”

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    He need an intervention. The way he backs trump is sickening

  • Shira Harding-James

    Or maybe they didn’t make the cut based on talent not appearance

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    If they make the effort or say it how its spelled, I think people should simply politely correct the mistake. Dont go assuming people should know how to say a difficult name. People should also ask how to pronounce if they don’t know.

    Im sure someone had talent with a similar color to the real character. The Movie is based off of real people. Thats just like having Alicia Keys play Michelle Obama

    Yeah it’s okay they don’t have to get ONLY the title of a black movie correct. According to you, we should just ignore EVERYTHING they do! The cooning!

    Well I don’t expect the hidden fences issue to last more than week. However the outrage isn’t fake and I feel like it was intentional

  • n1kk1a

    In their defense, “Hidden Fences” sounds like it could be a thing…?

  • Shay Bay

    Hmmmm…I agree and disagree. It’s more believable when the actress looks similar to the person they are portraying but, at the same time, if the actress is great you may not even care to notice. Best example, Angela Bassett playing Tina Turner.

  • Concerned

    I’m sure they’re joking. Black twitter is famous for fake outrage. Lighten up people

    Did you see Pharell’s face when she referred him with the wrong movie title??

    This is how yt shows you how they don’t got any love for us
    Trust they remember titles like “Monster’s Ball” “Django Unchained””The Help” or “12 Years of Slaves”…
    Black hero movies??? They rather say the wrong title.
