Spike Lee To Boycott The Oscars

Giving Spike Lee an honorary Oscar isn’t enough to pacify him!

The movie director took to social media on MLK Day to announce he and his wife, Tonya, will not be attending the Academy Awards in February due the the lack of diverse nominations.

My Wife, Mrs. Tonya Lewis Lee And I Will Not Be Attending The Oscar Ceremony This Coming February. We Cannot Support It And Mean No Disrespect To My Friends, Host Chris Rock and Producer Reggie Hudlin, President Isaacs And The Academy.

But, How Is It Possible For The 2nd Consecutive Year All 20 Contenders Under The Actor Category Are White? And Let’s Not Even Get Into The Other Branches. 40 White Actors In 2 Years And No Flava At All. We Can’t Act?! WTF!!
