Soap opera actress Nancy Lee Grahn took to Twitter to bash Viola Davis' Emmy acceptance speech. She later apologized, but the damage had already been done.

Poor Nancy Lee Grahn. It must be hard to not know that you’re a closeted racist, and then the Internet gives you a rude awakening.

The General Hospital star basically ended any peace she would be enjoying on her Sunday evening when she tweeted her dislike of Viola Davis’ incredible and inspirational acceptance speech. Davis had just made history as the first African-American woman to win for Lead Actress in a Drama.

Black Twitter immidiately swooped in and their clapback game was, of course, relentless.
