Yesterday, Deray and Whoopi was trending on social media.
It all started with McKesson tweeted and removed from his account. This message below:
“Given the history of rendering Black people as apes, I’m offended & appalled by the lack of consciousness in Hollywood,” he wrote. “In associating Black people with apes, active work is being done to perpetuate the dehumanization of Black people in mass media.”
On ‘The View’ Whoopi and her crew talk about DeRay Mckesson’s Planet Of The Apes’ Controversy.
DeRay, you need to go back and watch the 1968 original and check out what the apes were wearing!
This has nothing to do with you!
