Grey's Anatomy creator, executive producer, and general head honcho Shonda Rhimes isn't afraid of speaking out about Hollywood's flaws and foibles, especially when it comes to race. So it's no surprise that a recent Twitter joke from Shonda had a bit of biting social commentary hidden in it.
"Did they just introduce two redhead presenters and then cut to a redhead in the audience?!" Shonda tweeted last night (January 27) during the SAG awards. "Like the Oscars does with black people?"
Oh, snap. Shonda managed to call out a bit of weirdness during the SAG presentation and bring up an awkward Oscar pattern — and she was funny at the same time. We'd expect nothing less from the woman who brings us Grey's every week.
