Sometimes I question why I choose Monday nights to blog. Then, I realize that Mondays can be rough and so it’s best to set the tone for the week. Well, hopefully… Let’s get it!
Hot Mess #1: Hollywood for still not understanding #OscarsSoWhite
In the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite trended on Twitter. It was a direct result of the lack of diversity seen across the nominations for various categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and so on. The Twitter chatter was so loud that Chris Rock, who hosted the awards ceremony, had to address the diversity conversation live.
Needless to say, that didn’t turn out so well. Remember when Stacy Dash, the one actress who’s probably lost her “Black card,” walked out on the stage…
Yeah…Anyways, apparently, Hollywood still hasn’t gotten the memo about the need for more diverse representation on the screen, giving roles written about people of color to white actors.
Luckily for us, we have talented POC individuals like Constance Wu, who stand up to the ridiculousness that is Hollywood. Constance stars in ABC’s “Fresh Off The Boat,” a hit comedy about an Asian-American family, and has been very vocal about Hollywood’s diversity problem.
Constance Wu Slams Matt Damon’s New Movie
Yup, I’ll let you guys read that one for yourselves…Sigh, when will Hollywood ever learn? Audiences are craving for diversity. Just give it to us! lol
Hot Mess #2: Donald Trump for being too lazy to educate himself
Honestly, I really don’t have that much against Donald Trump (I’m going to ignore his racist, chauvinist comments for a second. Bear with me.) More than anything, my real issue with Trump is the fact that he almost refuses to learn anything outside of his own outrageous opinions.
Trump says Putin is ‘not going to go into Ukraine’
Trump’s questionable stance on both domestic and foreign affairs is quite scary. The good news is Russia will not be going into the Ukraine because it already has…#AMess
Hot Mess #3: Anyone who has nothing better to do than bash Malia Obama
Over the weekend, Malia Obama chose to have fun at Lollapalooza instead of hanging out at the DNC, a decision that all teenagers probably would have made. But, of course, the haters are going to hate and talk about everything from her attire to her dance moves to the fact that she passed on the DNC.
Well, news Fl-A-sh. One, Malia is a teenager wearing typical teenage clothes, doing typical teenage things. Two, she’s not running for office and her whole life has been nothing, but one long speech after another. So, let’s let the girl live.
Hot Mess #4: Bill Clinton for probably loving balloons more than U.S. citizens
Even though Malia did not watch the DNC, I, along with the rest of America, chose to witness the A-mazingness that was Bill Clinton playing with balloons. Who knew that Bill could be THAT happy?
In the words of Ludacris, “Balloons!” lol
