Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith Are Refusing to Attend the Oscars After Non-White Actors Were Shut Out for Second Year in a Row

Both Lee, 58, and Pinkett Smith, 44, took to social media on Monday to announce that they will not be attending the 88th annual Academy Awards because of the #OscarSoWhite controversy.

Lee penned a thoughtful message on Instagram in which he revealed that because of the lack on diversity for the second consecutive year, he and his wife, Tonya Lewis Lee, will not be attending the 2016 ceremony.
