Shonda Rhimes Pops Off on The New York Times After Being Labeled an 'Angry Black Woman'


Shonda Rhimes has popped back on The New York Times after the publication labeled her an “angry black woman,” among other things.

The first line of the NYT’s piece reads,

“When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography, it should be called “How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman.”

Say what now? Another line in the article reads:

“Ms. Rhimes has embraced the trite but persistent caricature of the Angry Black Woman, recast it in her own image and made it enviable.”

Hmm…we’re not sure what exactly’s enviable about being an ‘angry black woman’…but okay.

Shonda took to Twitter to blast the NY Times and express her displeasure with the article.

Get em, Shonda! Her latest show How to Get Away With Murder stars Viola Davis and premieres Thursday, Sept 25 on ABC.
