    OMG, the suffering these immigrants, thousands and thousands of them are going through and these actors are whining about opportunities for black actresses. There is something wrong with this picture !!

  • mandyz

    Wtf is wrong with you? Lupita gave an amazing performance in 12YAS. For you to have enough hatred and call Lupita ugly when she has done nothing wrong and has been a great role model for POC and WOC, shame on you. You don’t need to attack someone while trying to elevate someone else. BOTH Lupita and Viola are great actresses and good women to look up to.

  • mandyz

    Well we all know now who the real ugly asshole is. Thanks for letting us know who you are 💁

  • Wendy
