50 Cent and Snoop Dogg are blasting the Emmy Awards after no Black actors won in the major categories.
Following Sunday night’s show, Variety‘s headline read: “#EmmysSoWhite: No Actors of Color Win Despite Record Nominee Lineup.”
Fiddy posted a screenshot of the Variety article and commented on Instagram, “Listen the Emmys still has a separate bathroom for colored folks. I’m gonna put the NAACP awards on the air at the same time and f**k up their numbers. No they really should be afraid of me I’m different.”
Snoop posted a collage of photos of 38 Black nominees, including Kevin Hart, Issa Rae, Don Cheadle and the late Michael K. Williams, and commented on Instagram, “Then U wonder why I say f**kall these bulls**t a** award shows. They not for us Emmy these nuts in ya mouth.”
In 2015, the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became prominent after African-American stars were ignored at the Academy Awards. This year, Blacks were shut out as winners in all twelve of the lead and supporting actor and actress Emmy categories.
RuPaul did win for Outstanding Competition Program for RuPaul’s Drag Race, and became the most awarded person of color in the history of the Emmys, with 11 wins total.
