Dumbest Thing I've Read All Day

Oscars Best Picture Gaffe and Slow Response Eclipse Diversity Gains

And here Hollywood had been feeling so good about itself, what with all the African American nominees, only to have it all be for naught because of a mix up at the end of the night.

I can understand the sentiment had Moonlight, the picture that won based partly on its "intersectionality" (it's about a gay Black person, a Hollywood and Vine intersection of victim groups), been robbed of the prize. But everything was corrected on the spot, and within minutes, so I don't understand what all the kvetching is about (save for the knowledge, some of it first hand, that for certain kinds of people, there's no such thing as too much kvetching).
