Issa Rae, who looked absolutely stunning at this year’s Emmy Awards, has proven she’s unafraid to speak her mind. The Insecure creator and star, despite her show being snubbed by the Emmys, said that she was rooting for all the Black people at the ceremony.

Variety reports:

Issa Rae, creator and star of HBO’s “Insecure,” was happy to get candid about who she was rooting for to win at this year’s 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, despite her own show’s snub.

“I’m rooting for everybody black,” she said from the red carpet. “I am!”

She also expressed appreciation for “Insecure’s” audience, stating that their support of her and the other writers allowed them to tell stories from their own personal experiences in Season 2.

“People just let us be and tell the stories we wanted to tell and me and the writers ran with it,” she explained.

Rae went on to speak on Insecure’s success and noted that Black actors and actresses are gaining the notoriety often handed over freely to their white counterparts.

As if we needed a new reason to love Issa Rae more, she goes and does this.
