Tension was already as thick as your mother's cornbread when the Oscars aired Sunday evening. The issue of diversity hovered like a dark cloud above Los Angeles. And yet even with this on everyone's mind, someone online still managed to prove our point: diversity is necessary

Fortunately this act of stupidity was countered by a string of tweets from @KidFury wrongly naming white actors.

Fury made sure however to accurately name actors of color with pride.

The offender deleted the tweet and apologized, but the damage was done. Even @BlavityLive joined in on the fun.
