It seems like the #OscarsSoWhite debacle shows no signs of losing steam anytime soon. After the Internet tore apart the nominee announcement, it took celebrities little to no time to chime in on the controversy. Jada Pinkett Smith stepped up to the plate to vocalize her concern with the lack of diversity and publicly announced that she would be boycotting the Academy Awards through her Facebook video post. After she expressed her position on the matter at hand, other stars flocked to do the same. While some were just as passionate to nix the award show, other celebs thought that they were overreacting.
This time Whoopi Goldberg articulated that she was also upset by this happening, but is still infuriated that there's a boycott behind it. Goldberg stated, "You wanna boycott something? Don't go see the movies that don't have your representation. That's the boycott you want. To me, we have this conversation every year. It pisses me off." It's clear that people are very passionate about the matter and are voicing their opinions publicly, no matter the backlash they may receive. As the conversation continues to happen, we've rounded up seven other celebs that have stepped up about their thoughts on this topic.
