Jada Pinkett Smith Responds to Academy's Diversity Statement
The 44-year-old actress previously announced that she will be boycotting the Oscars after no actors of color were nominated this year.
Cheryl then released a statement saying that Academy will be reviewing its membership in the coming days and weeks to bring about diversity as soon as possible.
“I would like to express my gratitude to the Academy, specifically Cheryl Boone Isaacs, for such a quick response in regard to the issue at hand. I look forward to the future,” Jada tweeted on Tuesday afternoon (January 19).
