Diversity Hawks

On the Coen Brothers providing the "wrong answer." From the article:
Their opinions are valued and reported upon because they are major members of the industry. To whiff on this answer so badly is tremendously disappointing, especially coming from such ambitious filmmakers.
Seems to me, this sentence makes absolutely no sense. If their opinion matters, then the opinion should be considered, not condemned. Think of the implication here...the only "opinion" must be the "right-thinking" one. This is 1984, plain and simple.

And then this:
Being famous in 2016 requires an awareness beyond yourself and a sense of social justice — that's indisputable.
I'd dispute it.

Hat tip, Viner.
