SHOCKING: New Oscar Statue Celebrates Diversity
Hollywood, CA – Morgan Freeman started a firestorm by calling out the SAG awards for a Gender-Specific Statuette while accepting the guild’s life achievement award.
“I wasn’t going to do this; I’m going to tell you what’s wrong with this statue,” Freeman said. “It works from the back, but from the front, it’s gender specific. Maybe I started something.”
Those words drew dramatic applause from an audience filled with people who have nothing better to do than give everyone their opinion. The SAG Awards Guild said they are going to look into updating their statue in the future however it seems as if The Academy Awards are already ahead of the game.
With Hollywood’s ongoing quest to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and many other -ity type words, the 90th Academy Awards have finally decided to update their extremely offensive statuette known as “The Oscar”. The old Oscar design only celebrated the accomplishments of cis-gender white males but the new design, which will now be know as “Mx Osxr”, will focus on the celebration of love.

We sat down with Edward Plasky, the CEO of Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry, who manufactures the statue to discuss the changes.
“The statue is not a man anymore. We worked closely with a gay-trans-sculptor to create a statue that celebrates all life. The statue is a non-binary, handi-capable hen. It also formerly identified as genderqueer but is currently transitioning into a pansexual toaster oven.” Plasky said, “We also added dreadlocks because the statue chooses to identify as an African-American even though they were born Irish.”
As we were leaving the office we could hear Plasky telling his design team, “Add a gold plated pacifier! The Oscar wants to identify as a 3 year old baby who’s severely teething!”
Twitter was quick to react:
