    Lee Daniels to actors of color: ‘Stop complaining and do the work’

    During an interview with The New York Times, Lee Daniels criticized the people behind the #OscarsSoWhite movement.

    During an interview with The New York Times, Lee Daniels criticized the people behind the #OscarsSoWhite movement.

    While the industry itself has acknowledged that there is a discrimination problem at the core of the entertainment industry, which affects the ability of people of color to get good roles, Daniels thinks that discrimination is not the problem. Work ethic is.

    We made Lee Daniels rich because he produces & directs quality movies, however I'm really confused about his work ethic statement, like Black entertainers don't read their scripts fast enough? Don't show up at the studios early enough? Don't kiss butt enough? What? Black entertainers want parity in consideration for winning Oscars & even nominations because an Oscar gives you leverage when in contract for your next movie. The more Oscars on your mantle means more money you can leverage for your future projects. I guess he kind of forgot that on "his" ascent to the top. Well it's just an opinion & he's entitled to it.
