Fucking WHAT?! That was it?? I'm... speechless, wow. What was Ava's response afterwards? I mean, she was stood right next to you.— Leonard Sultana (@lennyukdeejay) May 21, 2018
Fans on twitter are mad, because Asia Argento says that Spike Lee was the only one who supported her after her Cannes Speech.
A fan in a since deleted tweet asked Asia if Ava Duvernay responded to her Cannes Speech, Asia replied "no response"
Ava offered a gracious response to Asia's accusations.
Thank you, in that moment I was in shock.— Asia Argento (@AsiaArgento) May 22, 2018
She should have offered a clearer apology to DuVernay in that case. Her saying Ava DuVernay—who has been very vocal about combating sexual predation in Hollywood—gave no response to her speech wasn’t just inaccurate. It was hurtful, even if it was inadvertent.— [kie.ran] (@danblackroyd) May 22, 2018
Black women can’t win for losing. Asia Argento went full White Feminism on Ava Duvernay. Being victimized by a white man and white patriarchal power doesn’t mean you get to lean into white feminine fragility at the expense of black women. No apology? Fuck that and fuck her for it— Rae Sanni (@raesanni) May 22, 2018
Wow asia argento said ava duvernay said nothing to her after her speech, ava chimed in and said she did respond,asia then reframed it as though she did not hear ava, and white ppl are telling asia she doesnt have to apologize for mischaracterizing ava— Whoopi Glow-berg (@PKitele) May 22, 2018
