Writer Stephen King incurred the wrath of social media and social justice warriors on Twitter after sharing his thoughts about diversity and how it applies to the arts and the Oscar nominations. I respect him for taking the heat and not deleting the tweets which you can read below.

Nationally syndicated morning radio show The Breakfast Club (which can be heard locally on our sister station 106.7 The Beat) had a thing or two to say about it as well with their 'Donkey Of The Day' segment which you can hear below.
