CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson: Diversity Push from ‘Smug Liberals’ in Hollywood Is ‘Really Hypocritical’

CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said today that Hollywood lecturing the rest of the country about the importance of diversity at the Oscars is “really hypocritical.”

Hollywood, she said, is probably one of the “biggest purveyors” of “racist, ageist, sexist imagery across the globe.”

And Henderson wasn’t done there:

In the history of the Academy Awards, 1 African-American woman has won Best Actress. The Oscars has been around for 90 years. So, you know, these sort of self-righteous smug liberals, I mean––it’s really hypocritical.
