Fans Outraged at New York Times for Calling Viola Davis 'Less Classically Beautiful'

Twitter exploded this morning when an article surrounding Viola Davis and her new role in How to Get Away with Murder was published on the New York Times website and included some very poorly worded phrases.

“Ignoring the narrow beauty standards some African-American women are held to, Ms. Rhimes chose a performer who is older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful than Ms. Washington, or for that matter Halle Berry” the article stated, which caused fans to explode after saying that darker-skinned women are “less classically beautiful.”

Viola is a gorgeous and incredibly talented actress known for her work in Doubt, The Help, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby series, and many more.
