Slow Clap: Black Actors Just Dragged TF Out Of Hollywood In The First 5 Minutes Of The Emmys

Reparations for everyone Black.

Published September 18, 2018

The opening skit at the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards was one to remember.

Some of the biggest names in film, music and television hit the stage to drag Hollywood for two of its favorite accessories: diversity and inclusion.

Kenan Thompson, Tituss Burgess, Sterling K. Brown, RuPaul and John Legend were among the stars to hit the stage calling out the widespread issues with a lack of diversity within Hollywood. Taunting various issues within the Hollywood industry and the steps needed to improve them, the group proudly proclaimed, "We solved it!"

The jokes kept coming once hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost hit the stage. The duo tackled hot topics like sexual harassment, the controversy surrounding Roseanna Barr's ABC show cancellation and a lack of representation in classic series like ER and Cheers.

While diversity was a hot topic during the first five minutes of the show, it's also worth noting there were not any Black/non-white Emmy award winners announced within the first hour of the show's broadcast.
