‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers finds that when it comes to the Daytime Television Emmys and the soap world, it looks like everyone from all different corners has something to say about it. As a matter of fact, an online debate was recently sparked after ‘Days of Our Lives’ actress Camila Banus (Gabi Dimera) suggested that actresses of Latina heritage are yet to be recognized by the academy. ‘General Hospital’ star Chloe Lanier (Nelle Benson) responded by saying that the awards are given out based on talent and that the voting system is fair.
And while there is no doubt that many people can debate on this all day long, Camila Banus stood her ground while Chloe was forced to deactivate her Twitter account following quite a backlash that she received from her online fans and followers. However, it appears as though the conversation is still going with many soap fans weighing in on what they think.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Fans Split Over Camila Banus And Chloe Lanier Controversy
Some comments have included, “Daytime Emmys have been a joke for years. Victoria Rowell one of the best actresses ever never was nominated spoke out about this.Camila’s work speaks for itself,” along with, “I don’t really disagree with Camila’s comments, but I think her dismissive reply to Chloe did nothing to further a complex discussion.” Another fan wrote, “In my opinion Chloe oversimplified an issue that does not affect her. Chloe is speaking for herself and the panel, while Camila being the token veteran Latina in daytime, is the voice of an entire people group that is underrepresented. Daytime may not be intentionally racist, but they are definitely not inclusive. That’s the point Camila was trying to make. And like Chloe, she is entitled to her opinion which many of us share.”
So far both actresses have made no further comments about the controversy, but we have a feeling that this won’t be the last that we will hear about it. What do you think?
