@erikalust @porn_linda @CarlosM74035725 @maturenl @primeralinea @linabembe @RomeoOnSet @Kali_Sudhra @heidi_switch @BiszhopBlaczk @erikalust REALLY! did you just use the defence;

"I have a black friend, so I can't be racist" statement and tag me to come to your defence.

Sorry #ErikaLust but you & your company systemically endanger performers and profit off marginalised identities.
@erikalust @porn_linda @CarlosM74035725 @maturenl @primeralinea @linabembe @RomeoOnSet @Kali_Sudhra @heidi_switch @BiszhopBlaczk #ErikaLust; You consistently pay performers of colour less than their white counterparts.
@erikalust @porn_linda @CarlosM74035725 @maturenl @primeralinea @linabembe @RomeoOnSet @Kali_Sudhra @heidi_switch @BiszhopBlaczk You don't perform or deliver the diversity you publicly claim to champion.

And this shows in the number of performers of colour, non normative bodies & performers of diverse genders in your films, which can be counted on two hands vs the 165 performers you've worked with.

@lirivera @BostonGlobe #JunotDiaz was targeted for a takedown by 3 female fiction writers: #ZinziClemmons #CarmenMMachado #MonicaByrne. All: Read #apologizetoJunot & my thread (threadreaderapp.com/thread/1042140…). @forjustice2018 - audio of JD's respectful interaction w/ Machado who lied. #fauxfeminism #MeToofail
@lirivera @BostonGlobe @forjustice2018 Others (like bitter writer ex-gfs) jumped in like @realalisavaldes ("kiss-n-teller" he briefly dated 22 yrs ago, who blogged in 2008 to brag abt sleeping w him while on journalist duty!). And @lirivera (sensitive writer he had lunch w 1x). No evidence #JunotDiaz harassed women.
@lirivera @BostonGlobe @forjustice2018 @RealAlisaValdes Alisa Rivera: Your points are simply ur biased assumptions as a comm prof & former aspiring fiction writer who accused #JunotDiaz of sexually harassing & bullying u 15 yrs ago on a lunch date. U met him 1 time. He didn't tell u what u wanted to hear & tried to make up. U cried.

@KieseLaymon @Occidental Hey Kiese: I'm handling something now for my (disabled) dad. I'll write u back later, bro. I'm a v nice person -- u can fact-check w God. 😉 But I will not allow #ZinziClemmons to get away w her drive-by to kill #JunotDiaz's career. JD didn't forcibly kiss her. #apologizetoJunot
@KieseLaymon @Occidental Hey Kiese: Too bad we're connecting abt this #JunotGate fiasco, as u're a smart brother I'd love analyzing culture w/. Listened to ur talks. Interesting kings/queens pt @DukeU. I fact-checked #Trayvon's parents' book passage @Essence for terrific exec editor, JM. U & I 4 justice!
@KieseLaymon @Occidental @DukeU @Essence Justice: This #JunotGate fiasco started May 4 @SydWritersFest when ur 30-something #WOC writer friend #ZinziClemmons took mic & publicly accused #JunotDiaz (@mit_cmsw @BostonReview @PulitzerPrizes) of harming her 6 yrs prior. ZC then tweeted JD had cornered & forcibly kissed her!
