Spike Lee to Boycott Oscars 🚫🏆

  |   Hollywood

Spike Lee has decided to boycott 🚫 this year's Oscars 🏆 as all of the acting nominees are white 😶. The filmmaker, who was awarded an honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November, said that while he appreciated that recognition, he and his wife 👫 "cannot support" this year's Academy Awards. He said 🔊, "Mean No Disrespect To My Friends But, How Is It Possible For The 2⃣nd Consecutive Year All 20 Contenders Under The Actor Category Are White ❓". He voiced 📢 his opinion on the occasion of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday 🎂 and he even quoted Martin Luther saying, "There comes a time 🕐 when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, Nor popular but he must take it because conscience tells him it's right. 👌"
