50 Cent Blasts Emmys After No People Of Color Win Acting Awards The Emmy awards took place last night and rapper 50 Cent had something to say about the winners. The rapper shared a screenshot of a headline from Variety that said, “No Actors Of Color Win At Emmys Despite Record Nominee Lineup”. He captioned the post, “Listen the Emmy’s still has a separate bathroom for colored folks. I’m gonna put the NAACP awards on the air at the same time and f*** up there numbers. No they really should be afraid of me I’m different”. 50 Cent has since deleted the Twitter and Instagram post. According to the Emmys, 49 people of color were nominated in acting and reality categories, which is a record high. What do you think can be done to ensure diversity at award shows?
