Newspaper brilliantly trolls Oscars for lack of diversity in yesterday's nominations

Applause.

YESTERDAY’S OSCAR NOMINATION announcement was met with outcry from observers who felt that the nominees weren’t as ethnically diverse as they should have been.

Needless to say, the internet is loving it.
