Jane Campion Apologizes to Venus and Serena Williams


Last night as she was accepting the Critics Choice Award for Best Director Jane Campion randomly addressed Venus and Serena Williams telling them unlike her, they never had to compete against men. 

Campion apologizes for her tone deaf remarks...




After her acceptance speech went viral Jane released a statement to Deadline
“I made a thoughtless comment equating what I do in the film world with all that Serena Williams and Venus Williams have achieved. I did not intend to devalue these two legendary Black women and world-class athletes. The fact is the Williams sisters have, actually, squared off against men on the court (and off), and they have both raised the bar and opened doors for what is possible for women in this world. The last thing I would ever want to do is minimize remarkable women. I love Serena and Venus. Their accomplishments are titanic and inspiring. Serena and Venus, I apologize and completely celebrate you.”

She meant that shit -

The awkwardness though. I felt that uncomfortable laugh in my spirit.

Why did she even need to bring them into the speech? Just pick up your award and sit your old ugly hag face down. Yt ppl, I hate you for all you do and dont do. Team too much.

Serena and Venus remain unbothered.

She probably had a couple glasses of straight vodka before her ugly man face got up to accept the award.
That's why she was feeling herself. This white bitch is so ugly they thought she was one of the boys. GTFOHWTHBS!

Venus looking like, Bish, you tried it, while Serena clapping like a seal at Sea World. But yeah, that cyborg white woman from Terminator 3 should've kept her mouth shut. Who TF is she anyway?

Serena and Venus don't compete against men on the court.
They lose in mixed doubles matches.

I still trying to understand why she decided to single out Venus & Serena. There were so many other accomplished people in the room and in her industry, but she had to use those sisters to try and stand on.

But they say black women don't go through shit! The fuck?

^^^Exactly. And it was a calculated comment. She didn't just think that up while on stage. She thought about the comment before making it and knew exactly what she was saying. Campion is no one's idoit. Like most white people she just thought she'd be able to get away with it.

This is what Yt'y will do. Throw the smart ass comment out there so it can be heard. Then apologize after but the comment sticks and the apology is forgotten. Only the negative comment is remembered.

Just another white man in a dress that can't compete with his peers, so he dumps on black women who can. Typical.

This was a dog whistle. She's suggesting that Venus & Serena are men or manly and able to compete with men. As a woman she isn't a contender against men. She has separated herself from the manly imagine.
