Jada Pinkett-Smith: Boycott 'All-White' Oscars

"Should people of color refrain from participating all together?”

Outrage over the supposed "whiteness" of this year's Oscar nominees has reached beyond the Twitter ravings of random leftists and onto big Hollywood stars, including Jada Pinkett-Smith, wife of superstar Will Smith and known mostly for her roles in The Matrix series and The Nutty Professor

Jumping in on the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag that emerged last year when the film Selma got snubbed in acting and directing nominations, Pinkett-Smith tweeted that she will be boycotting the Oscars alongside attention whores Rev. Al Sharpton and filmmaker Spike Lee. Tweets below:

 


 

 

 

Joining Pinkett-Smith in the tirade Thursday was academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs (a black woman) expressing to Deadline Hollywood that she was "disappointed" the Oscar nomination failed to have more diversity.
