I fell in love with Nicole Byer on her show "Loosely Exactly Nicole"!
But now she has a new show on Netflix called "Nailed It", its a baking competition show that shes the host of! Recently a Twitter user tweeted the shows Thumbnail (seen below) ,but the problem was she wasnt included in the picture!!!! Nicole had a few thing to get off her chest once she saw the tweet!
Nicole didn’t like that a fake plastic head got more thumbnail real estate than she did, and she let it be known in a series of tweets (that have also since been deleted).
“If Netflix didn’t sign my checks and give me a huge platform and opportunity to showcase my comedy. I would talk about how fucked up and disrespectful this is to me a black woman. Also how black women are a lot of times erased from many different conversations. I would talk about how it makes me know my true value as the host of the show where I work incredibly hard to elevate the material given to me. Lot of moments people love are improvised.
I would talk about how this essentially white washing for more views. But they sign my checks and I’m honestly so happy and greatful [sic] to and for the show and no sarcasm I love my job and wish to keep it so I’ll be quiet. To be clear. I know there are thumbnails with and without my face…This one just seems for lack of a better word deliberate. Again I love my job.”
Not too long after Nicole slapped at Netflix for botching that thumbnail like a Nailed It! contestant botched a cake, she deleted her tweets and replaced them with this one.
I deleted my last set of tweets bc I talked to one the execs on my show about it and the thrilling conclusion is the removal of the image and a conversation about how the thumbnails are made and selected that I’m happy with.— nicole byer (@nicolebyer) May 29, 2019
