Jada Pinkett Smith is incredibly upset with how the Oscars have snubbed Black artists this year, and she’s questioning how they should respond.

Jada is not feeling the whole 50-Shades-of-Beige vibe going on with the Academy Awards this year. Among the field of nominees, there are no artists of color up for any of the major awards.

In a year that brought us films like Creed, Straight Outta Compton, and Concussion, there doesn’t seem to be any excuse for this. It’s so appalling that it even caused Black Twitter to dust off last year’s #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.

Jada, however, wasn’t content to complain or make snarky remarks. The actress has always been about action and took a moment to suggest some rather drastic measures on Twitter.




It sounds to us like Jada is creeping up on suggesting a boycott. Do you think the Academy needs to see an Oscar Blackout before its members get the message?
