Last night’s Emmy awards ceremony was full of excitement; the good, the bad and the best. Amongst the best moments was Viola Davis’ big win for Best Actress in her role as Annalist Keating for the drama, How To Get Away With Murder. Davis became the first Black woman to win the award. However, someone felt the need to attempt to take her shine away.

Davis’ acceptance speech was filled with sentiments on race and opportunity, however, General Hospital soap star, Nancy Lee Grahn took to Twitter to bash every word that flowed from the woman’s lips.

“Im a f**king actress for 40 yrs. None of us get respect or opportunity we deserve,” Grahn wrote in a tweet later, but later deleted. “Emmys not venue 4 racial opportunity. ALL women belittled,” she continued.

Since it’s obvious that the backlash came pouring in, Grahn then tried to put sugar on top of her later comments.

“Viola Davis winning lead actress Emmy’s historic. My upset is acting awards don’t fix racial injustice. As an actor I see how irrelevant we r. I never mean to diminish her accomplishment. I wish I could get her roles. She is a goddess. i want equality 4 ALL women, not just actors. I apologize 2 anyone who I offended. i’m women advocate since I became one. After reading responses, I hear u and my tweet was badly phrased.”

She keeps going:

I apologize for my earlier tweets and now realize I need to check my own privilege. My intention was not to take this historic and important moment from Viola Davis or other women of color but I realize that my intention doesn’t matter here because that is what I ended up doing. I learned a lot tonight and I admit that there are still some things I don’t understand but I am trying to and will let this be a learning experience for me.

Homegirl knew as soon as she sent those tweets out that it was the wrong time and place. Besides, is there a rubric that contains what should or should not be said during an acceptance speech? I’ll wait. Oh, okay than Ms. Grahn. Move on.
