People are getting really angry about a segment on Jimmy Kimmel last night that pokes fun at calls to boycott the Oscars for this year's lineup of all-white acting nominations. And to think that Kimmel usually uses his trolling powers for good. Here's the controversial sketch in question, in which a clueless PR director for the Academy Awards offers more "diverse" takes on Oscar-nominated movies.
And here's how people are reacting:
Yo @jimmykimmel, I'm trying to figure out if anyone told you, your vid/skit on the Oscars problem missed the entire point so badly.— X (@XLNB) January 22, 2016
Not only is this dismissive of a real problem, it's also not original, brave, or funny. https://t.co/IvbR0J5dMs— Tiara Francis (@tiarafrancis) January 22, 2016
