Emma Stone receives backlash for "four men and Greta Gerwig" joke at the Oscars


While presenting Best Director at the Oscars last night, Emma Stone introduced the nominees as "four men and Greta Gerwig," a jab at the fact that Gerwig is only the fifth female director to be nominated in Oscars history.

Some Twitter activists are taking issue with this joke, since two of the nominees - including eventual winner Guillermo del Toro - were men of color. They say it represents "peak white feminism."

Are white women or men of color more oppressed?
