The Funniest Twitter Reactions To Lee Daniels’ White Savior Comments

Categories Blog, Diversity

ICYMI, Ebony Magazine published a story on Empire co-creator, Lee Daniels, and his next primetime television series on Fox. Pretty standard stuff, except for the fact that Daniels dropped this gem at some point in the interview:

“We are in a very dangerous state right now in our country and I wanted White people to feel good about being White because right now, there’s a lot of hatred going on…”


As you can imagine, Twitter clapped back and is DRAGGING Daniels in the most hilarious fashion. These are the funniest, and most on point, reactions to Ebony Magazine’s tweet from the article.
