"It is the profound privilege of my life to play Prior Walter in'Angels in America' because he represents the purest spirit of humanity and especially that of the LGBTQ community," Garfield said in his speech. "It is that spirit that says no to oppression, it is a spirit that says no to bigotry, no to shame, no to exclusion. It is a spirit that says we were all made perfectly and we all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ who have fought and died to protect that spirit. To protect that message for the right to live and love as we are created to.
Some Victoria's Secret models have been slammed for allegedly uttering the n-word while singing along to Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow." In a video posted by a Twitter account called Pop Crave on Tuesday, the clip shows models singing backstage at the fashion show, which took place in Shanghai this year.

Naturally, people were less that forgiving to what they had just seen in the video, including perhaps Cardi B, who retweeted the video. That n-word was too loud and clear for there only to be one black girl in this room https://t.co/BoY9xcyWUL
