Danny DeVito: 'The Entire Country Is Racist'
Danny DeVito responded to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy by saying that the lack of minority nominees was an unfortunate example of how America is a "racist country."
“It’s unfortunate that the entire country is a racist country," the actor, director and producer of dozens of TV shows and movies said at the Sundance Film Festival.
DeVito said there great performances that weren't even considered due to the actors' race.
"We are living in a country that discriminates and has certain racist tendencies," he continued. "So sometimes it manifests itself in stuff like [the Oscar nominations] and it’s illuminated. But just generally speaking, we’re a bunch of racists.”
Actors Don Cheadle and Sam Neill also weighed in, saying that the industry as a whole needs to change.
