Lena Waithe Calls Out Denzel & Will For Not Financing Films w/ Black Talent

 

Lena Waithe has a bone to pick with the Black glitterati. She called out folks like Denzel Washington and Will Smithfor not funding Black independent films. 

Waithe says one of the biggest roadblocks facing young Black filmmakers and storytellers is the lack of Black financiers in Hollywood. The way she sees it, “There are some very big Black movie stars out there, and they could pay for two or three or even five small independent movies to get made by Black directors and Black writers.”
