It all started on the 2017 Golden Globes red carpet when Jenna Bush asked Pharrell Williams about the movie he produced—you know, Hidden Fences *face palm*.
Williams' face was priceless, and that was pretty much the reaction all black people had upon hearing the titles of the two Golden Globe-nominated films Hidden Figures and Fences being meshed into one. You know, because all black people _______ (fill in the blank) 1) are the same, 2) fit into one movie, 3) don't deserve to have more than one nomination or 4) all of the above. If you chose choice No. 4, you are correct!
How come no one mixed up The Night Of and Night Manager?
Of course black Twitter never misses a moment to create hilarity out of (not so) subtle racism, and it did. And that's when #HiddenFences was born. Enjoy!
