Ava DuVernay suggests male directors who have a problem with her can sue her



  • DuVernay was honoured at the 30th annual GLORIA Awards

  • In her speech she said that a "friend" from the Director's Guild of America had once contacted her about her show Queen Sugar

  • DuVernay has always made it clear that she will only hire directors who are women for Queen Sugar

  • DuVernay's "friend" told her that they were being contacted by male DGA members who were complaining about discrimination

  • DuVernay said that if someone had a problem with her they could sue her: "Thank you, friend, thank you for that call. I invite you to tell whoever is feeling discriminated against to sue me so that I can sue every studio that has left women out . . . ’cause we can do this, if that’s what you want to do."
