Nancy Lee Grahn, of General Hospital fame, didn’t like Viola Davis’ Emmy speech, and the Internet was quick to criticize her for her tone deaf tweets. So, she profusely apologized.
A little later on, she tried to qualify her position: “Viola Davis winning lead actress Emmy’s historic. My upset is acting awards dont fix racial injustice. As an actor I see how irrelevant we r. I never mean to diminish her accomplishment. I wish I could get her roles. She is a goddess. I want equality 4 ALL women, not just actors.”
Then, Grahn began her apology: “I apologize 2 anyone who I offended. I’m women advocate since I became one. After reading responses, I hear u and my tweet was badly phrased. Schooled. As surrogate 2 last democratic presidents I thought I needed no lesson in equality. I was wrong. Please accept my apology.”
