NY Post Front Page Mocks Oscars Diversity Crisis

Screen grab

The Post referenced the #OscarsSoWhite debate for a story on snow storms hitting New York.

Diversity, or rather the lack thereof, is the only thing that Hollywood is talking about at the moment, so the New York Post took the opportunity to troll the debate with a cheeky front cover for Thursday's edition.

With a lead story on snow storms hitting New York, the Post's headline "This Weekend Will Be Whiter Than the Oscars" referenced the ongoing and deepening controversy of the lack of diversity among Oscar nominees. 

The diversity controversy rumbled on with Donald Trump weighing in on Wednesday. The GOP presidential frontrunner questioned why white actors get shut out of awards shows like the BET Awards. Also on Wednesday, rapper 50 Cent and actor Tyrese Gibson implored Oscars host Chris Rock to drop out of the show.
