Author Bolu Babalola offered another perspective.

"Actually it is an ironic symbol, she is taking up space as a Black woman, whilst the white not only represents a femininity BW have traditionally not had access to but also how whiteness has obscured and obstructed paths of progress, in this essay," she tweeted.

Guilty. I really do love the dress. She looked gorgeous in it. I am feeling kind of neutral on her decision to go for the attention grabbing statement dress—I’m not usually a fan of that—but whatever. She was happy to be there and having her moment. It’s just unfortunate she was blocking people’s view. The designer should have thought of that and come up with a solution so people would be talking about the beauty of the look rather than it blocking people!

R152 If a White woman had worn that monstrosity and blocked the view of some Black folk you'd never hear the end of it. But what we hear is, "she was making her presence as a Black woman known to a white environment". You better believe these bitches' behavior comes from a sense of entitlement and privilege.

Bitch is at the fuckin' Oscars with a nominated song. She is entitled and privileged.

No she isn't. None of the other nominees pulled this childish stunt, including the winners. This bitch didn't even win for her shit song (though to be fair, all the nominated songs were shit).

She should have been moved to the far end of the row, where the auditorium is angled so that she wouldn't have obstructed anyone.

I'm curious what she thinks of having done this. Did she feel bad at all? Did she really not notice? Was she thinking this was a good way for her to advance her career? Did she know everything going on and really enjoyed the attention over it?

Narcissism is fascinating.

You heard that from two--count 'em - two people on Twitter. Both of whom are trolls who say shit like that because they know it will get them noticed.

Not because they believe it.

R163, in R71, she is directly quoted as saying:

[quote]"Two years ago, I would've said no to this dress," Tems laughs. "But it's my first Oscars — I am going to go all out. I really wanted to make the most of the day. The dress is also my way of celebrating my work and the people around me, celebrating my country, and celebrating the people that are rooting for me. This dress says 'Yes, yes, I am here!'"

[quote]"If I see a limitation, I cure it. Any limitation that I find in myself or things that are hindering progress, I reject that. My normal state of being is without limitations. Who I am is without limitations. Limitation is a foreign thing to me," she says confidently. "I'm going to go and go and go and go and go and go and go and reach and reach and reach and reach till I literally cannot anymore—which is till I die. Like till the grave!" she laughs.

[quote]"All of this, to me, is an open door. Not just for me, but for everybody who is from where I'm from. If I can do it, they can do it," she continues. "I'm happy that I got to fight, and I want to let people know that they should fight for every single thing that they believe in. It's not easy, but once you have a plan, once you know who you are and you know where you're going, every single thing sorts itself out."

I think it's safe to say that she feels very entitled, and the Twitter trolls are simply amping it up a small amount.

Tems speaks and outs herself as being selfish and full of bullshit:

“Two years ago, I would’ve said no to this dress,” she told Harpers Bazaar in an interview days before the Oscars that was published Monday. “But it’s my first Oscars — I am going to go all out. I really wanted to make the most of the day. The dress is also my way of celebrating my work and the people around me, celebrating my country, and celebrating the people that are rooting for me. This dress says, ‘Yes, yes, I am here!’”

And, of course, the racists had to defend her:

Some people celebrated the fact that a Black woman unapologetically took up space at a historically white ceremony that has long faced criticism for a lack of diversity in its nominees and winners. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was slammed for shutting out several Black filmmakers and performers from recent films, such as “The Woman King” and “Till,” in its Oscars nominations this year.

“I applaud Tems for proudly and unapologetically taking up space and owning it, and I’m following her example,” journalist Carolyn Hinds tweeted.

That dress probably gave a few people the ability to openly mock the ceremony without getting caught. I really doubt any celebrity actually wants to watch others win in their categories and getting sat behind that number was a bit of a gift to those shielded from view by it.
