CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson was extremely harsh on Hollywood following the 89th Academy Awards, saying it is made up of “self-righteous smug liberals” and criticizing the movie industry for distributing racist, ageist, sexist imagery across the globe.
The panel on CNN’s Inside Politics discussed the Oscars and the impact it might have on the political discussion in America. The award ceremony spent most of its time bashing President Trump and conservative values on Sunday.
“I think it’s also pretty hypocritical. I mean, Hollywood. I mean, probably one of the biggest purveyors of racist, ageist, sexist imagery across the globe, across the decades, and so this idea that they should get out there and lecture anyone about inclusion, about diversity. It’s laughable,” Henderson told the panel.
“In the history of the Academy Awards, one African-American woman has won Best Actress. The Oscars has been around for 90 years. These sort of self-righteous, smug liberals, I mean I think it’s really hypocritical in terms of what their industry is.”
