Say WHAT? Ava DuVernay Says People in Hollywood Think She Directed 'Queen & Slim' and 'Harriet'

Ava DuVernay is fed up with being confused by people in Hollywood.

The When They See Us director took to Twitter to call out “non-black folks in Hollywood” who think she directed new movies Queen & Slim and Harriet.

I’ve now been congratulated by non-black folks in Hollywood 11 different times about my direction of HARRIET and QUEEN AND SLIM. When I share that I didn’t direct those films, that they are made by black women directors who are not me? Nervous chuckles. Apologies. This place… Ava tweeted.

If you didn’t know, Harriet is directed by Kasi Lemmons, while Melina Matsoukas directed Queen & Slim.
