The veteran actress on her show 'The View' explained why she is against the boycott of Oscar Awards by the black community. One of her reason is because she thinks that it would be a "slap in the face" of Chris Rock who is hosting the event. During the discussion with her co-hosts she said;
"You wanna boycott something? Don't go see the movies that don't have your representation. That's the boycott you want. To me, we have this conversation every year. It pisses me off."
It's not that the problem is that the people who are nominated are too white. They're not looking at a movie and saying, 'Oh, that's very white. I'm not going to nominate that black movie.' They're not sitting there like that!"
"What the problem is, the people who can be helping to make movies that have blacks and Latinos and women and all that - that movie doesn't come to you. Because the idea is that there's no place for black movies."
"So I'm not going to boycott, but I'm going to continue to bitch as I have all year round because I'm tired of seeing movies where no one is represented except a bit of the population, not all of it," she said
