    Golden Globes: Sylvester Stallone Blasted For Snubbing Black Director, Co-Star of 'Creed'

    "Well. I'm gonna go ahead and thank RYAN COOGLER + MICHAEL B. JORDAN since no one else is," critically-acclaimed 'Selma' director Ava DuVernay quipped in a Sunday night Tweet.

    Sylvester Stallone was immediately blasted over social media by African-American stars for not thanking 'Creed' star Michael B. Jordan or director Ryan Coogler after he won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a film, while specifically thanking a long list of non-black coworkers and friends.

    'The Hateful Eight' star Samuel L. Jackson also went on the attack, Tweeting, "#waitwaitwait, Ryan Coogler & Michael B Jordan, Thanks for acting with me!!! Loved Sly but..."

    Some people aren't happy unless they have something to complain about.

    poor Sly was just shocked that he'd won. Give the guy a break, he's old and juiced to the gills.

    He should have known better. He was so butt hurt when Tommy Gunn snubbed him.

    Was Sly the producer as well? If so shouldn't they be thanking him?

    Seriously, those guys ought to be thanking Sly. Nobody would have gone to see that picture if Stallone wasn't in it.

    Plus the movie was largely a retread of the original "Rocky".

    Apparently during the commercial break Sly continued with his speech and thanked those two guys. Ridiculous that people (reggies) want to turn this into a racial thing.

    I remember him walking back to the mic after they were going to commercial to talk more. And it looked like he was pointing at Jordan when he was talking.

    Guys like Stallone or tarentino aren't going to show up unless they are winning.

    Yup. Coogler confirmed Sly did indeed come back out onstage and thanked him, Jordan and the deaf girl - but the camera's had cut to commercial.

    Sly was obviously flustered - he thanked William Morris and some other industry types twice.

    Stallone is Coogler's boyhood hero. He was able to direct him to an award-winning performance as Rocky. No direct praise is needed there - that's amazing!

    What I loved was the great many "news" sites that made sure to mention Coogler's and Jordan's skin color when reporting on the flub: many of them said something like "Stallone forgets to thank his BLACK director and co-star.."

    Guess it IS okay to qualify race when accolades are due, but not when the Five-O are trying to ID a rapist on a college campus. Thanks stupid fucking 21st Century Political Correctness!!
