Aaron Sorkin Just Learned Hollywood Has a Diversity Problem and Twitter is Roasting Him



At the Writers Guild Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, Aaron Sorkin revealed that he didn’t know that Hollywood has a diversity problem. According to Variety, he asked his audience “Are you saying that women and minorities have a more difficult time getting their stuff read than white men and you’re also saying that [white men] get to make mediocre movies and can continue on?”

Sorkin continued to try to learn more throughout his talk before eventually asking, “What can I do [to help]?”

Hollywood’s diversity problem is, of course, widely recognized and is often reported on. People are pretty surprised that Sorkin isn’t aware of it, and have been roasting him on Twitter for it:
