Sylvester Stallone bashed after snubbing Ryan Coogler and during the Golden Globes.
Sylvester Stallone was immediately bashed over social media by African-American stars and fans for not thanking Creed director, Ryan Coogler and co-star Michael B. Jordan after he won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a movie.
Stallone thanked several people during his speech, but he did not thank those two men during the awards speech. Apparently, Sylvester Stallone came back on stage during the commercial break, to thank Michael B. Jordan and Coogler but, it was a little too late.
#waitwaitwait, Ryan Coogler & Michael B Jordan, Thanks for acting with me!!! Loved Sly but…

I guess to Sylvester Stallone his black director and co-star are Expendable. #GoldenGlobes

I’m livid. Sly Stallone thanked everyone from the producers to craft services but couldn’t be bothered to menton the Black star or director.
