Viola Davis Responds to 'New York Times' Article, Is Rising Above!
Viola Davis took to Twitter to respond to mean comments made in a recent New York Times article about her new role in How to Get Away with Murder.
“You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise!!!” the 49-year-old actress tweeted.
In case you didn’t know, Viola was described as “older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful than [Kerry] Washington, or for that matter Halle Berry,” by a New York Times writer.
