Shonda Rhimes isn't afraid to use her Twitter platform to call out people's ignorance. Take, for example, her recent tweet clapping back at a Deadline article saying that minorities were stealing White actors' roles on primetime television. Smh. Shonda, we bow down to you!
Shonda on the Deadline Article
Here's the story: Earlier this week, Deadline posted an articled by Nellie Andreeva titled "TV Pilots 2015: The Year of Ethnic Castings—About Time or Too Much of a Good Thing" (we know, we know). The article argued that in the past year, many White actors and actresses have been passed over for roles as if casting directors were looking to fulfill an ethnic quota.
Well, Shonda wasn't going to let that fly. Our queen took to Twitter, asking someone to hold her purse as she called the article downright ignorant. Shonda, you took the words right out of our mouths.
