Social Media Confused As Anya Taylor-Joy Described As ‘Woman Of Color’


Social media users are rubbing their eyes with confusion after Anya Taylor-Joy was referred to as a ‘woman of color’ in a recent article.

The Peaky Blinders actress was born in Miami, Florida to a Scottish-Argentine father, and identifies herself as a white latino.

In an article in Variety after her Golden Globes win for her excellent performance in Queen’s Gambit, Taylor-Joy was referred to as a woman of color.

It originally read:

“Argentinian Taylor-Joy is the first woman of colour to win this category since Queen Latifah in 2008 and only the fifth woman of colour to win overall since 1982 when the category was introduced. S Epatha Merkerson, Halle Berry and Alfre Woodard were the other previous winners.”

Social media was outraged:

The magazine updated their copy to better reflect Anya’s ancestry correctly and issued an apology on Twitter.
