‘Scandal’ Premiere: What viewers are saying
Kerry Washington hit television airwaves tonight with the debut of her new show Scandal. The new series, written by Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, welcomed an overwhelming positive response from viewers on twitter. What’s more interesting (or telling) is the fact that most of the tweets sent about Scandal‘s premiere were made almost entirely by people of color.
“#scandal is epic. Proud of kerry. Her craft. Her journey. Appreciate the challenges shes overcome cus of her color #getem”
“The wait was worth it…absolutely loved the premiere of Scandal. Plleeassee don’t let me down tomorrow ratings.”
“#TUNEIN to “SCANDAL” NOW on ABC to support @kerrywashington ! This = 1st Female Black STAR on a primetime show in a LONG time + it’s GREAT!”
I’m loving @kerrywashington on #scandal already…..knew I would #teamkerry
“I know I’m supposed to say I love #scandal since I’m black, but eh…. mediocre”
“#Scandal is a hit! That is all.”
“I stopped watching #Scandal after the first five minutes. Boooo.”
We found two tweets from white people after the show aired.
“If your a christian conservative republican you are the enemy on ABC’s new TV show #Scandal. The show mocks my core beliefs.”
“I’m loving #scandal. Good. I needed a guilty pleasure with #thebachelor not coming back until May!!”
