Viola Davis made history with her Emmy win, but her speech led to a controversy that really shouldn’t have happened.

Not too long after Viola wrapped up her touching speech, soap actress Nancy Lee Grahn decided to take to Twitter to slam the actress for bringing up Harriet Tubman and the lack of diversity in Hollywood.

Nancy got dragged by plenty of folks for her comments, but it appears Viola has decided to take the classy route.

    1. Me too. Most of us had no clue who she was before all of this happened. I’d let her go back to an unknown soap actress while I collect Emmys and get roles of a lifetime…like Viola is doing.

  1. Viola doesn’t have to say anything that loser is still getting dragged. Viola just needs to keeping shining and winning like she been doing.

  2. Viola understands the dummy hanged herself anyway. When someone acts ugly and exposes themselves for the world to see, you don’t have to say or do anything. Let people hang themselves.

  3. Great response while still shining light on the beautiful black actresses ‘oh girl’ appears threatened by.

  4. I love her answer because she basically said without actually saying it that that bish isn’t even important but was mad because the speech made her feel even less important. LOL.
