PEOPLE MAGAZINE TWEETS THEN DELETES RACIST COMMENTARY ON VIOLA DAVIS

The good citizens over at People Magazine might want to look into finding themselves a good PR agent because this latest stunts sure does have people fired up! Thursdays, angry fans ripped People Magazine’s Twitter a brand new one after People tweeted out a very offensive post in response to Viola Davis starring role in the brand new television show “How to Get Away With Murder.”

It seems as though People Magazine has a hard time separating Viola Davis from her role as Aibileen Clark, the maid from the movie The Help.
