Stephen King's Tweet About Diversity & Oscar Nominations Is Under Fire

Famous author Stephen King sent out two tweets that have caused a ton of backlash.

In response to the 2020 Oscar nominations, which have been universally called out for the lack of diversity in the categories, Stephen wrote, “As a writer, I am allowed to nominate in just 3 categories: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Screenplay. For me, the diversity issue–as it applies to individual actors and directors, anyway–did not come up. That said…I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.”

As soon as Stephen wrote this tweet, he began receiving backlash from public figures and Twitter users from across the US.
