Shade Is the New Black! Did an 'OITNB' Cast Member Just Slam Jennifer Lopez?

Dascha Polanco wants you to know one thing.

Published August 11th

Orange Is the New Black star Dascha Polanco is making headlines today for what many assume is a jab at Jennifer Lopez. In a sub tweet, which the actress has since deleted, she made a remark that some feel was not so subtly directed to Jenny From the Block, especially given the announcement of her newest role.

In the cryptic tweet, she called out "actors" who criticize her No. 1 Netflix series for its portrayal of women as inmates but rush to snag roles of drug lords. This caught the attention of social media because J. Lo was just announced to play the late drug lord Griselda Blanco in an upcoming HBO film. Take a look at Dascha's tweet, below:

Despite what many are saying is an obvious dig, Dascha says if she wanted to call anyone out, she would have tagged them directly.

"When I want to come for someone I tagged them. #letsbeclear #soeasytorallypplup @evaporatehuman," she tweeted, then deleted.

Watch J. Lo continue to turn heads at 47 in the BET Breaks video, above.
