During her tenure @ FOX, on January 20, 2016 on the FOX and Friends segment where she commented about the lack of diversity with the Oscars, she was accused by members of the African American community of being a traitor where her comments were directed at Black-centric awards e.g. BET Awards, NAACP Image Awards (one of her responses was that if one was awarded they have to be African American - the Image Awards did have non-African Americans who have been nominated) which included her line of excising the BET Network (which she referred to as a special network for Blacks when calling for inclusion, especially her remark about "segregation or integration"; she did not take the reaction from BET executives where she wrote on her Patheos blog a day later (January 21, 2016) where she stated that BET lies to Black people and anything that promotes segregation is bad).

Personal Quotes (2)

I took the bus, I took the train, I did whatever I had to do, and I went into the city and auditioned for things.
I came across awful characters when I got some kind of status and came to Hollywood. Then you have directors trying to sleep with you, assuming that you will do things because of the way you dress.
