Watch As This Actress, Who's Apparently 'Past Her Prime,' Absolutely Torches Don Lemon in Oscars Speech
I didn't watch the Oscars last night, since I anticipated it would just be a bunch of woke BS. But I was pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning and see that a jab was thrown at our favorite CNN morning host, Don Lemon.
Actress Michelle Yeoh, who was in Crazy Rich Asians and Avatar 2, accepted the Best Actress award for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once. During her acceptance speech, she said, "Dream big, and dreams do come true. And ladies, don't let anybody tell you you're ever past your prime."
Yeoh is actually 60 years old, which I find shocking. She looks amazing. Her comment is obviously a reference to that time Don lemon claimed women shrivel up and lose all value after the age of fifty, then had to undergo "how-not-to-offend-women" training at CNN.
You may be asking, how did our pal Don respond to this jab? And I'm here to tell you, he didn't. He completely ignored it. This morning on CNN, Lemon said, "“this is a huge night for Asian and Asian Americans" as they discussed the film Yeoh starred in. He also said it was "especially re-affirming" for Asian Americans. But no mention of the jab.
“The moment that I related to the most is when Ke Huy Quan said' my 80-year-old mother is at home watching.' He said, ‘Look, Mom! I won an Oscar!’ You can’t help but tear up at that moment and relate to it.”
But again, no mention of Michelle's jab. Just a bit of virtue-signaling about the race of the actors. CNN contributor Nischelle Turner also joined the discussion to say she hopes the Oscars continue to recognize more actors of color. Which I have no problem with, as long as the actors deserve the awards based on their performances. Irrespective of their race, or whether they're past their "prime" age. According to Lemon, of course.
